Wallabies ready to take on Argentina

THE Wallabies are gearing up for their Rugby Championship clash against Argentina at C-Bus Super Stadium tonight.

There’s been speculation Argentina plan to ambush Australia, but skipper Michael Hooper has rejected these claims, hoping his side can come through after a bad run this year.

The home crowd should give them the push they need to improve on last week’s game against South Africa, and furthermore make up for last month’s let down against the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup.


The teams last met in Rosario last year, where the Wallabies thrashed the Pumas 54-17.

Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie is urging local supporters to head to C-Bus Super Stadium for the clash, with the Australian Rugby Union fearing it could be the lowest turn-out on home soil since Australia met with Fiji in 2010.

The game kicks off at 8.05pm.
