10. Kurtley Beale 
9. Nick Phipps 
8. Radike Samo

6. Sitaleki Timani 
5. Nathan Sharpe 
4. Kane Douglas 
3. Ben Alexander

18. Dave Dennis 
19. Scott Higginbotham

Surprisingly good considering the injuries sustained by the squad. Good to see Timani back and the inclusion of [removed]mins. 


This will be a good one to watch! Pumas have nothing to lose but will be hurting after last week. Wallabies with their backs firmly against the wall. I'm picking Wallies by 10

I think the Wallabies can win this game - provided they play the tight type of rugby.

 this is argentinas chance of redemption. They had a good start in the 4 nations and looked like deserved participants. They have only tooking 2 beatings, the 1st against the boks and then a horendous one in the last weeks game against the All Blacks. If they can win tomorrow good on them. If this Australians lose they will become a basket shambles

Somehow I think OZ will have the ability and desire to get up as the Argies wont smash them like the Boks did and dont have the outwide ability to take their chances. I just think that the Wallabies will be up for this one and as mentioned above for all the injurioes they have that is not a bad second string Wallaby side. I also think the Argies will be more shell shocked than the Wallabies and their inexperience against the top three was brutually exposed last week.


Wallabies by 12 to 15 and if they win by more and the Boks lose then we go back to 3rd place on the IRB rankings
