Wallabies tame Pumas to break Rugby Championship duck

Another rugby league convert named for Wallabies

Another rugby league convert named for Wallabies

"They didn't try to hide from the lack of intensity and urgency and they needed to pick it up and own it and they did that in the second half".

League convert Marika Koroibete could be in line for a Wallabies starting berth after impressing coach Michael Cheika in his worldwide debut.

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.

"But they sorted themselves out and it was a much better second half".

Windies humble England in T20
Hales's exit was the start of a slump that saw England lose three wickets for four runs as 64 for one soon became 68 for four. The key passage of play started when paceman Brathwaite bowled Alex Hales for a rapid 43.

"There's a sense of finally getting a reward for the hard work we've been putting in", Hooper said.

The Wallabies remain third on the Rugby Championship standings but can leapfrog the Springboks into second spot with a win over them in their next match in Bloemfontein.

South Africa were annihilated 57-0 by leaders New Zealand in Saturday's earlier Test in North Harbour.

The Australians headed into the Canberra match after two losses to the All Blacks and a draw last weekend with South Africa, but the win didn't come easy against the gritty Pumas.

Meanwhile, many Southwest Florida residents remain frustrated that they are among the minority still without power. Never touch any downed or low-hanging wire, including telephone or cable wires that touch a power line.

"I'm sorry that the first half was a bit slow".

Argentina led 13-10 at halftime after bullying their hosts in the back-row contest but a first half try from Martin Landajo and a brilliant late consolation from Matias Moroni were not enough for a first win in Australia since 1983.

The Wallabies turned around a 13-10 half-time deficit to run out 45-20 winners and keep alive their chances of finishing second in this year's tournament.

The Pumas were reduced to 14 men when prop Enrique Pieretto was sent to the sin bin for repeated scrum infringements leaving his team a man short for the final 10 minutes.

Harry Redknapp departs Birmingham City
Yesterday's defeat left Birmingham second from bottom in the Championship , with one win from eight matches. Redknapp , who signed 14 players during a major summer overhaul, was in charge at St Andrews for 13 games.

Although Matias Moroni's score rewarded Argentina for their enterprise with two minutes remaining, Argentina have now lost 13 of their last 15 worldwide fixtures since beating South Africa in Salta a year ago.
