Coming off a last gasp win over South Africa the Wallabies were full of confidence compared to the Pumas who were coming off a big loss to New Zealand.

 

After a scrappy start in front of a strong crowd in Mendoza, the Wallabies got on the board after 16 minutes when Joe Tomane crossed for a try.

 

This was a rare highlight in the first half as both teams were forced to resort to penalty goals.

 

Two penalty goals to the home side’s flyhalf Nicholas Sanchez and one to his Australian counterpart Bernard Foley handed the visitors a two-point lead at half time.

 

Whatever new coach Michael Cheika said to the Australian’s at half time had a profound effect as they came out all guns blazing after the break.

 

Two more penalty goals to Foley pushed the visitors lead out to a very handy eight points.

 

Despite losing Quade Cooper to the sin bin, the Wallabies piled on three tries from Dean Mumm, Tevita Kuridrani, and Adam Ashley-Cooper to seal a 25-point win.

 

The Wallabies now have two weeks to prepare for a huge clash with the in form All Blacks.
