Argentina’s stunning victory over All Blacks may have made the 2020 Triple Nations title more achievable for the Wallabies, but it also made Saturday’s clash with Los Pumas much more dangerous than expected a few weeks ago..

If coach Dave Rennie has special ideas for giving his wider team some time to play in the last two Tests of the year, the score at Pankwist Stadium dissipates them completely..

The Australian defensive line set to face Argentina remains unchanged from the streak that helped the team defeat the All Blacks two weeks ago, a decision facilitated by James O’Connor’s continued absence due to injury.

There are three changes to the set, but with two of them forced – James Sleeper and Lachey Swinton out due to injury and suspension respectively – it’s Rainey’s case he picked the best team possible..

Bringing Tanila Taupo to the side of the start is clearly a way to deal with the extreme physical strength Los Pumas will achieve, but there has certainly been some thought in persevering the brace in the same way as in Brisbane.. He was excellent off the bench, and was a lot more influential than he was earlier in the Bledisloe Cup, and there wasn’t much wrong with him in the « if he ain’t broke, don’t fix it » approach in his role.

However, Tupou’s introduction to the second-round team will improve the scrum, an area Rene said yesterday they are looking to target Argentina. But given how successful they were against New Zealand, there’s no guarantee it will pay off – it appears that Mario Ledesma’s side has rediscovered the set-ball mojo after a few years of having an uncharacteristically weak team.

With that in mind, it made sense to bring Scott Seo straight to the starting side rather than promoting Angus Bell from the bench to replace Slipper, whose defense and defense are a huge loss. Bale was impressive when he made his debut in Bledisloe 4, but he wasn’t the most consistent player at Scrumptious Time in Super Rugby.

Giving him a first start against a powerful pack based on a single match – however promising – would have been more risky than choosing a more experienced SEO.. Plus, if Rainey’s comments about Brumby’s training efforts over the past two weeks are anything to go by, tomorrow night should see Sio return to his form in 2015 after a year when he was below his best..

When watching the Pumas-All Blacks match, one can’t help but notice that Argentina is a good match for the Wallabies.. They were able to disrupt the New Zealand squad – not just through a few vital thefts but also through competing throws – and were formidable on the downfall, two areas Australia has struggled at times this season..

As Ned Hanigan’s return to XV improves the squad, his challenge will be to match them with Argies in Contact. Waratah did well on his return to testing rugby this year, but he’s still not physically in control, the kind that Rainey has added to the side by picking Swinton in Brisbane.

Had he not been stopped, Swinton would have enjoyed the opportunity to face-to-face the likes of Pablo Matera and Marcus Kramer, even if there was no guarantee that he would match the Argentinian losers.

There is no similar certainty that the entire Wallabies outfit will be able to outrun their opponents this weekend – far from that. Los Pumas looked like a team that has stuck in the gym for the past nine months, and against a team that still has a number of growing players, it is likely the strongest team of the two.. .

However, it is important that Australia not be defeated. It is no coincidence that their losses this year came when New Zealand had the upper hand in communication, while both wins and draws were marked by strong performances in.

The Wallabies played most of the Bledisloe 4 matches in the right areas of the park, but Argentina’s desire and ability to play without the ball was more evident.. Nicholas Sanchez and Thomas Copelli hit the kicks precisely the whole time, with some particularly impressive final exits.

After that, Rex Hodge and Nick White will have a critical role to play to ensure their opposites don’t control the shoe.. White had some dubious moments in the first half in Brisbane but he did some much better box shots in the second half, which should be repeated in Newcastle..

A clear indication of the importance of the kicking game is the return of Jake Gordon to the Wallabies bench after Tate McDermott wore the number 21 in the last two games. Rene said in the run-up to Bledisloe 1 that the Gordon kick is an area in which he has an advantage over McDermott, and yesterday he adopted the quality of his « core skills » compared to McDermott’s better running game.

Expect powerful kicks from nine Australian players, and both teams overall. This can lead to a somewhat brutal tactical rugby game – not to mention irritating a former Wallabies designated coach sitting in the visitors’ box – but you feel that which side chooses to run more than kick will only hamper their chances.

At the back of the field position, discipline will be the key. Just as Australia did the previous week, Argentina defeated the All Blacks despite scoring fewer attempts, and showing willingness to take all three whenever possible – and with Sanchez kicking the way he was, « available » meant anywhere in the offensive half..

New Zealand discipline was poor what was admitting somewhat, with the 13 penalty shootouts recognized having fewer than 16 penalties for Argentina. With the latter having a territorial advantage, translated into seven shots on goal, 18 tee points, and an amount of scoreboard pressure that the All-Blacks could not overcome.. .

One of the advantages that Dave Renny’s accusation has over their Kiwi counterparts, thanks to their weekend break, is that they know exactly what to expect from Los Pumas. There will be no complacency, no surprise to see their opponents play well beyond what a team under 500 minutes should have under their belt.. .

There may be something to pulling out of Argentina – at least they will certainly commit more than one processing mistake – but while common sense says the team will struggle to support such a physical confrontation, especially when this was their first test since Over a year, common sense has been useless in anticipating the final outcome.

The Wallabies must assume that Puma will play with equal skill and strength. This does not mean, however, that they cannot succeed where all blacks have failed.
