Australia and Argentina complete their 2020 Tri Nations campaign at the Bankwest Stadium in Sydney on Saturday. Mathematically both can still win the title, realistically they know the All Blacks have already won it.

The Wallabies will want to finish well and will be confident of doing so against a Pumas side in disarray with suspensions and criticism from all corners.

Australia Form


Australia have had a number of ups and downs in the short rugby season thus far. Beating New Zealand in the final Bledisloe Cup encounter 24-22 was a highlight, just as the week before was a lowlight having lost 43-5 to the same opponents.

Both those matches counted towards the Tri Nations. Last time out Australia were very disappointed with a 15-15 draw against Argentina. It was a match which the hosts dominated but they allowed Argentina to score nine unanswered points in the final 15 minutes to draw level.

That has cost the Wallabies as they should be heading into this match knowing victory would secure them the Tri Nations title. Instead they have almost no chance of winning the tournament, unless they beat Argentina by 101 points.

Australia Team News


Regular fly-half James O’ Connor returns from injury this week so Reece Hodge will play at full-back in place of Tom Banks. The only other change sees Allan Alaalatoa come in for Taniela Tupou at tighthead.

Argentina Form


Argentina’s stunning form in the Tri Nations was finally brought to a crushing halt last weekend. After beating New Zealand 25-15 and drawing 15-all with Australia, the Pumas had a fabulous chance of winning the Tri Nations.

That fine form has however turned into disarray. Last weekend Argentina were thrashed 38-0 by the All Blacks. They then came in for huge criticism for their poor tribute to Argentina football legend, Diego Maradona.

That wasn’t the end of the Pumas problems. Racist tweets from three players surfaced which has caused more unrest within the camp, despite the tweets being from 2012.

Argentina Team News


Pablo Matera has been sacked as captain for his tweets in 2012 and will miss this match. Two other teammates, Guido Petti and Santiago Socino have also been dropped for similar tweets.

There were threats of a strike from within the squad if the players were suspended but it looks like everyone is available.

Australia vs Argentina Head to Head


Australia have won eight of their last 11 matches against Argentina. They last played two weeks ago where Argentina managed a 15-15 draw.

Australia vs Argentina Odds


Australia are priced at 1.15 with Argentina valued at 5.50 to win. A draw is available at 34.00 with bet365.

The handicap for the match is set at 13 points.

Australia vs Argentina Match Up


Australia will want to end their season on a high and it is difficult to see an Argentine side in disarray fighting like they did two weeks ago. The visitors are also missing at least two very key players in their pack so I expect Australia to pull this one off with ease.
