Cape Town - The Wallabies heaped more misery on Argentina with victory in their Rugby Championship clash in Canberra on Saturday.
As it happened: Australia v Argentina
The Wallabies turned around a 13-10 half-time deficit to run out 45-20 winners and keep alive their chances of finishing second in this year's tournament.
The Wallabies scored six tries through fullback Israel Folau (2), prop Sekope Kepu, scrumhalf Will Genia, replacement No 9 Nick Phipps and replacement hooker Jordan Uelese. Flyhalf Bernard Foley added all six conversions and a penalty.
Argentina replied with tries by scrumhalf Martin Landajo and wing Matias Moroni, while flyhalf Nicolas Sanchez was on target with both conversions and two penalties.
The Wallabies picked up a full-house of five points for their victory and closed to within three points of the Springboks, who they will meet in a fortnight in Bloemfontein.
The Pumas headed back to Argentina empty-handed and are still looking for their first log point in this year's tournament.
The have the unenviable task of hosting the high-flying world champion All Blacks in their next match in Beunos Aires on September 30.
