Argentina Break 35-Year Drought Against Wallabies in Australia

Argentina defeated Australia at home for the first time in 35 years.


The disappointment was plainly written on the faces of the Wallabies, and the post-match formalities were marred by an ugly incident between a drunken fan, and one of the Australian players.


Meanwhile congratulation to the Argentinians for their second ever win over the Wallabies.



Australia 23 (Tries: Genia, Folau, Haylett-Petty; Cons: Toomua 2) defeated by Argentina 23 (Tries: Sanchez, Delguy; Cons: Sanchez 2; Pens: Bofelli 2, Sanchez)
