Meetings between the rugby union teams of Argentina and British and Irish Lions are not held in regular intevals. The British team went to Argentina three times in the early twentieth century, in 1910, 1927 and 1936. The next time those two teams met was nearly seventy years later in a single match played in Cardiff in May 2005. From a total of seven games, there was one draw and the rest was won by the Lions.
