Live stream Argentina vs Australia: How to watch rugby championship online and on TV today

Australia will look to start the rugby championship with back-to-back victories when they meet Argentina in a rematch on Saturday night (kick-off 8.10pm BST) in San Juan.

Indiscipline finally threw a spanner in the works for Los Pumas last week as they squandered a 19-10 half-time advantage to suffer a 41-26 loss and their coach Michael Cheika – a former Wallabies coach – is hoping for more Consistency as they try to turn the tables around this time.

“Cheika will have them cheering,” confirmed Wallabie’s scrum half Nic White. “The emotion will be there, but we have to go back to the process of how we want to play, what our identity is.”

Australia have many selection problems including inspirational captain Michael Hooper withdrawing from the squad ahead of the first Test due to mental health issues and starting flying Quade Cooper who added to a colossal injury list by leaving with an Achilles problem last weekend . That means 32-year-old James O’Connor will start for Australia at half-time this week, with the versatile Reece Hodge providing bench coverage.

Here’s everything you need to know about the game:

James O’Connor and Rory Arnold will start their first Tests of the year for the Wallabies, coming in at Fly-Half and Lock respectively, while Taniela Tupou starts at Tighthead Prop and Lalakai Foketi gets the nod at Inside Center’s other changes a week ago . Australia still have a long injury list that limits their options.

Argentina also made four changes, three-fourths of which came in the back. Gonzalo Bertranou starts in the scrimmage half, Matias Moroni is preferred to Matias Orlando at wing center and Juan Imhoff is named on the left wing, meaning Emiliano Boffelli switches to the right and Santiago Cordero falls. The only change in attack sees Thomas Gallo being promoted from the bench to start in the loosehead in place of Manuel Tetaz Chaparro.

Argentina wins – 9/5

Tie – 19/1

Australia wins – 1/2


The Wallabies are still strewn with injuries and the lack of a top-flight fly half continues to haunt them, meaning Argentina will see a chance, but the visitors should have enough in the tank to win the competition. Argentina 24-30 Australia
