Argentina vs Wallabies results, All Blacks thumped by Springboks, kick off time, latest rugby union news and video highlights

The Wallabies have claimed a gutsy 41-26 comeback win over Argentina in Mendoza to open their Rugby Championship campaign.

Playing without captain Michael Hooper and star centre Samu Kerevi, Australia trailed 13-3 and 19-10 throughout the match and also lost five-eighth Quade Cooper to injury in the second half.

Len Ikitau scored an 86th minute try to secure a bonus point for Australia after some wild passages of play and a long look from the TMO.

The same teams will square off again in San Juan in round two next weekend.

“The heart, the grit to win that is exceptional,” Matt To’omua says.

Morgan Turinui says blindside flanker Jed Holloway had “as good a debut as you’ll see.”

“That’s an unfathomable scoreline, a real line in the sand moment,” Turinui said.
