The first Wales overseas rugby tour was to South Africa in 1964. Four years later a Clive Rowlands coached squad went to Argentina to meet the Pumas in their own back yard. It proved to be a tough tour, with the home side winning the first Test 9-5 (Wales didn’t award caps). There was then a draw against Argentina B before three penalties from Stuart Ferguson, skipper John Dawes and Phil Bennett saw off Argentina C 9-6 in the penultimate game in Buenos Aires on 25 September, 1968. The tour ended with a 9-9 draw in the second Test on 29 September.
