The Springboks and All Blacks have understandably hogged the headlines this week heading into their blockbuster showdown at Twickenham on Saturday (17:00 SA time).

Meanwhile, the Wallabies and Pumas have quietly been going about their business in preparation for their equally important clash on Sunday (also at Twickenham, 18:00 SA time).

The Wallabies' controversial last-minute 35-34 quarter-final victory over Scotland has been well documented, while Argentina accounted for Ireland 43-20 in emphatic fashion.

However, that hasn't stopped local bookmakers Sportingbet from installing the Wallabies at 6-point favourites to reach the October 31 final.

Michael Cheika's men are on offer at 4/11 for the victory, while the impressive Pumas look a shrewd bet at 11/5 to reach their first ever final.
