Argentina raced to a 15-0 lead at the break in a half that saw Johnstone Olindi sin binned before Vincent Onyala gave Shujaa a lifeline with a try immediately after the restart, Oliech converting for a 15-7 but a converted try after Oliech was binned killed Shujaa's hopes.  They will now face Scotland in the Challenge Trophy Quarters at 1.37pm EAT on Saturday 10 September 2022.

Shujaa  had earlier defeated Tonga 19-0 to reach the round of 16.
