Argentina vs Wallabies kick-off time, date, when is

1 Have your say

    The 2017 Rugby Championship concludes with Australia visiting Argentina at the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas. The match will begin at 9:40am (AEDT) on Sunday, October 8.

    Australia’s lone win of the tournament came against the Pumas on September 16, with the Wallabies triumphing 45-20 at Canberra’s GIO Stadium.

    Michael Cheika’s side began the tournament with back-to-back losses to New Zealand, while stunningly both matches against South Africa have resulted in draws.

    Argentina are anchored to the bottom of the ladder, with five losses from as many appearances.

    They’ve been gallant in stretches, but the South American nation has been largely outclassed in the 2017 tournament, with their points differential currently -108.
