Frank Lomani helped the Barbarians beat Argetina 38 points to 35 at Twickenham this morning.

Lomani set up the Barbarians last try to South African lock Lood de Jager with five minutes left to play.

The try was converted and both teams were all locked up with five minutes to play.

The Flying Fijians halfback then delivered the final pass to Springboks fly half Elton Jantjies who nailed a filed goal with a minute and a half left to play.

Despite a Juan Manuel Leguizamon try, Matias Orlando, Ramiro Moyano, Pablo Matera and Sebastian Cancelliere scores put Argentina 28-7 up.

A penalty try and a score from Siya Kolisi reduced the deficit to 28-21.

Julian Montoya scored for Argentina, but Damian de Allende and Lood de Jager tries and Jantjies’ late kick sealed a dramatic Baa-Baas win at Twickenham.

“It’s a massive privilege representing this historic club. The guys just went out there and put everything on the line and it’s good to get a win,” said De Jager.

“One thing that’s always guaranteed from a Baa-Baas side is team spirit.”

The Barbarians, an invitational team that has been playing national sides on a regular basis since 1948, beat England in May.

South Africa’s Rassie Erasmus was coach for the Argentina game, with a squad featuring current Springboks Eben Etzebeth, Handre Pollard and Tendai Mtawarira.

Barbarians captain Wyatt Crockett added: “It was amazing. We have had such a fun week.”
