    68''

    65''
  • Try

    64''

    60''

    45''

    43''
  • The Wallabies have an early penalty which sees the ball kicked to half way in an early win of sorts for the Wallabies. 
    41''
  • The second half is underway. 
    41''
  • HALF TIME - It's been an absolutely dominant performance by Argentina in the first half and they lead 31-7 at half-time.

    38''
  • Koroibete concedes the penalty for tackling over the shoulder. 
    37''
  • Wallabies win the ball back after working hard to force the turnover but Genia kicks it long looking for space, but he kicks it too long and it rolls dead. It's a case of easy come, easy go for the Wallabies. 
    35''
  • Penalty to Argentina after the restart and this could end up being an embarassing loss to Australia if they keep going like this. 
    34''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION ARGENTINA - Gonzalez-Iglesias converts with Argentina leading 28-7. 
    32''
  • Try

    31''
  • Both sides have made two handling errors each. 
    31''
  • Sanchez is off and he waves to the crowd in a sign that he may be injured. 
    29''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION ARGENTINA - Sanchez adds the extras with Argentina leading 21-7. 
    28''
  • Try
    TRY ARGENTINA - The Wallabies couldn't handle that lineout and Orlando goes over for the third try of the match for Argentina.
    27''
  • Foley has been busy tonight and it's another good long kick to get them out of danger. 
    26''
  • Lavanini seems to have hurt his ribs after some contact from Pocock. 
    24''
  • The Australian defence seems to have woken from their early slumber with the Pumas unable to make any real ground they lose the ball. 
    23''
  • Wallabies win the lineout and Foley kicks well again to clear virtually to half way. Pumas will take it once again.

    20''
  • Good kick by Foley to accurately find touch and some good metres. 
    20''
  • Genia does well to apply the tackle to take Sanchez out of play. That's his second big tackle of the match. 
    19''
  • The Wallabies will finish bottom of the Rugby Championship table unless they can defeat the Pumas and score the bonus point. That's looking unlikely at this stage. 
    18''
  • Another penalty against the Wallabies this against Hooper for coming in at the side. Sanchez kicks to touch. 
    18''
  • Penalty against Australia for not releasing just out of the 22. 
    17''

    CONVERSION AUSTRALIA - Foley's conversion attempt is an absolute beauty! Argentina 14-7. 
    15''
  • Try
    TRY AUSTRALIA - Great pass inside from Genia to Hooper who is over for the try. Argentina 14-5. 
    15''
  • Wallabies kick to the left corner but Pocock concedes the penalty for not releasing the ball. Pumas keep their defence intact. 
    11''
  • Penalty to Australia for hands on the ball in the ruck. That will create some much needed relief. 
    9''
  • Pumas have the scrum on half way after the Wallabies knock on. Fair to say Australia hasn't had the best start. 
    8''
  • The Wallabies are under enormous pressure and will have to make up another two try deficit against the Pumas. 
    7''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION ARGENTINA - Sanchez converts with Argentina leading 14-0. 
    6''
  • Try
    TRY ARGENTINA - Just as Australia were trying to work out something on the left flank they lose the ball. Sanchez starts the move again and Boffelli takes off and says catch me if you can. Not a chance is the answer with a 40 metre run and Argentina have scored two tries in four minutes. Argentina 12-0. 
    4''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION ARGENTINA - Sanchez makes the easy conversion with Australia leading 7-0. 
    4''
  • Try
    TRY ARGENTINA - Sanchez with a defence splitting pass to Pablo Matera and the hole opens up big time! Matera runs through to score the try under the posts. Argentina stun the Wallabies with a very early try. Argentina 5-0.
