Wallabies claim first win at pointless Pumas Moylette gets off the canvas to keep record
AUSTRALIA claimed their first win of the 2017 Rugby Championship as they beat Argentina 45-20 in Canberra.
Israel Folau went over twice for the home side with Sekope Kepu, Nick Phipps, Will Genia and Jordan Uelese also scoring tries and Bernard Foley kicking 15 points.
Martin Landajo and Matias Moroni crossed for Argentina — who remain without a point after four games — with 10 points coming from the boot of Nicolas Sanchez. FORMER European Elite champion Ray Moylette survived a scare to improve to six wins from six in the pro ranks in Connecticut on Friday night — but he had to get off the floor to keep his unbeaten run intact.
The Mayo orthodox, who claimed World Youth gold for Ireland in 2008, went down under a heavy right from Michigan State champion Donte Bryant in the second round but got back on his feet at the Foxwoods Casino.
The Islandeady super-welter had a decent third and troubled Bryant with combinations in the fourth en route to a split decision win over six rounds in the toughest fight of his paid career.
Moylette will continue his hectic introduction to prize fighting in Boston at the end of the month versus Hector Rivera at the House of Blues. The bout will be his 7 th outing since making his pro debut in March.
