The second, not so important Rugby Championship match of the weekend is the Australians hosting Argentina, with many unbiased fans hoping that Argentina can upset the apple cart.

Australia are without their third captain with Will Genia ruled out for six months, but have a wealth of experience in newly appointed captain Nathan Sharpe. Kurtley Beale has been dropped to make space in a reshuffled backline for Pat McCabe, returning from an injury picked up during Super Rugby.

For Argentina, they will take great confidence from their showing against New Zealand last week, and will build from that and run a weak Australian side close, with this being their final away game of the Championship, they will be sure to give it their all.

Australia: Berrick Barnes, Dominic Shipperley, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Pat McCabe, Digby Ioane, Quade Cooper, Nick Phipps, Radike Samo, Michael Hooper, Dave Dennis, Nathan Sharpe (capt), Kane Douglas, Ben Alexander, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Benn Robinson

Reserves: Stephen Moore, James Slipper, Scott Higginbotham, Liam Gill, Brett Sheehan, Anthony Fainga’a, Kurtley Beale

Argentina: Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino, Gonzalo Camacho, Marcelo Bosch, Santiago Fernandez, Horacio Agulla, Juan Martin Hernandez, Martin Landajo; Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe (capt), Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Julio Farias Cabello, Patricio Albacete, Manuel Carizza, Juan Figallo, Eusebio Guinazu, Rodrigo Roncero.

Reserves: Agustin Creevy, Juan Pablo Orlandi, Leonardo Senatore, Toms Leonardi, Nicolas Vergallo, Martin Rodriguez, Juan Imhoff.

Referee: W. Barnes (RFU)
Assistant Ref 1:N. Owens (WRU)
Assistant Ref 2:G. Jackson (NZRU)
TMO : M. Goddard (ARU)

  • These Argies have impressed me in their first year of tournament rugby. They are certainly not whipping boys like Italy and Scotland in the 6N.
