This match is the Los Pumas’ 3rd against Qantas Wallabies in Mendoza since the Pumas joined the Rugby Championship.
Australia (Qantas Wallabies) has played Argentina (Los Pumas) twice in Mendoza, Argentina. Now it is Argentina vs Australia – which is 6th round of Rugby Championship 2017. Last, on 30 September 2017, Argentina played against New Zealand and All Blacks won by 36 where Los Pumas was only 10. Time for The Argentina national rugby team to win this battle against Australia in Rugby Championship 2017 at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas, Mendoza, Argentina on 07 October 2017. From last five head to head records – Australia won 4 and Argentina 1. Los Pumas took that victory on 4th Oct 2014 versus Qantas Wallabies but, this is going to be a massive game for the Wallabies and hopefully, in future, Mendoza gets plenty more opportunities to see the national team play here.
