Match Report – Aussies with the win over Argentina


Not the best test match with just too many mistakes but the Aussies were better overall and deserved their 16-10 win over Argentina.

There was plenty of movement from both sides on attack but just too many handling errors stop both teams from really pressing on.

It as the Aussies that put the first points on the board with a penalty.

Argentina also got a penalty over which made the score 3-all but after 29 minutes there has not been much to shout about as both teams made just too many mistakes.

Finally the Aussies setup a great set pieces to get the ball out wide with Hodge to get his try and something for the crowd to shout about.

The rest of the half went he same with opportunities being created but mistakes just killing it all the time.

The Aussies went into the break with a 10-3 lead and were the better side in that first half.

The Aussies had more of the ball in the second half and they could only show two penalties in 25 minutes to lead the Pumas 16-3.

The game was very scrappy as both teams just keep on making handling errors.

It was poor from both sides really but the Aussies will take the win to build on for the clash in two weeks against the All Blacks.
