CARDIFF -- Wales ended its autumn run of rugby futility when it beat Argentina 40-6 at Millennium Stadium on Saturday. adidas zx flux dames . Wales beat the Pumas in 2009 then endured 10 losses and a draw with Fiji in autumn tests until Saturdays clinical victory, its biggest against the visitors. The Six Nations champion heaped more misery on the Pumas, whose eighth straight defeat equaled their worst ever run from 1910-36. Looking tired, Argentina move on to Italy next week. Wales flattered in the first half to lead 23-3, a comfort they used in the second half to cut down their errors and limit Argentinas threat. The Welsh finished with two converted tries that spoke to their speed and power. Leigh Halfpenny padded the four tries with eight successful goalkicks, missing only once. Nicolas Sanchez kicked both penalties for Argentina, hit the post with another, and was short with a dropped goal attempt, but while the Pumas gave the ball plenty of air, the support play was lacking and the Welsh defence was staunch. Wales scored two tries in the first half. The first was opportunistic and the second a perfectly executed planned move. In the eighth minute, Sanchez was surprised by a pass from flanker Julio Farias Cabello, juggled it and knocked it into the hands of Wales scrumhalf Mike Phillips, who sped 75 metres to score. While Justin Tipuric was in the sin-bin for an off-the-ball tackle, Argentina couldnt take advantage, but Wales scored with Halfpennys second penalty. Halfway through the half, Alun-Wyn Jones tapped lineout ball down to Phillips, who drew the flankers out and passed inside for North to charge through a gaping hole 30 metres out. North easily beat the last defender for his 13th test try. Wales took nearly another half an hour to score its third try. From quick scrum ball, Halfpenny joined the backline and fed left wing Liam Williams, who fended off his marker and found No. 8 Toby Faletau inside to run in untouched. Then with 13 minutes to go, Wales showed off a rolling maul to power over Ken Owens, only four minutes after hed replaced hooker Richard Hibbard. nike air max 90 goedkoop . Turns out, the alternative wasnt any fun for Malone, either. Durant scored 30 points and embraced a role as a facilitator by finishing with nine assists to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder past Sacramento 108-93 on Sunday night.
