Wallabies rally to overcome Argentina
Australia scored five secondhalf tries to rally to their first victory of this year’s Rugby Championship with a 45-20 win over Argentina at a chilly Canberra Stadium yesterday. Fullback Israel Folau crossed either side of half time and Sekope Kepu, Will Genia, Nick Phipps and Jordan Uelese also scored tries to secure a bonus-point victory. Fly-half Bernard Foley converted all six tries and kicked a penalty to help the Wallabies back to winning ways after they lost two and drew another of their first three matches. Argentina led 13-10 at half time after bullying their hosts in the back-row contest but a first-half try from Martin Landajo and a late consolation from Matias Moroni were not enough for a first win in Australia since 1983.
