Argentina and Australia stand by 

Argentina and Australia parted back to back (15-15) this Saturday during the 4th day of the Rugby Championship. A result that allows them to catch up with New Zealand in the standings.

The Rugby Championship continued this Saturday. As surprising as it may seem, two teams which remain on a victory against the All Blacks were opposed on Australian grounds, in Newcastle, on behalf of the 4th day. On the one hand, Argentina who offered the New Zealanders’ scalp last week for the first time in its history (25-15). Opposite, Australia, falling from its neighbor the week before (24-22), and who had the opportunity to ride this positive wave. After four minutes, Reece Hodge scored the game’s first three points on penalty. The start of a great score played against the Pumas by the Australian opener who, as a reminder, scored fourteen points in the last match against the All Blacks. Unable to flatten the ball in the in-goal, Australia was able to count on Hodge’s nine points in the first period to regain the locker room with a lead of three lengths (9-6). A first act in which the Argentines lost their winger Juan Imhoff to injury.

Hodge and Sanchez assured the foot

Hit in a thigh, the Racing 92 player was forced to give up his place after fifteen minutes. Fortunately for Pablo Matera and his teammates, they saw another Ile-de-France player stand out in other circumstances. Their scorer Nicolas Sanchez, opening half of the Stade Français Paris and author of all the points of his team against the Blacks last Saturday, put his team back on the right path with his kicks. One match in the match against Hodge. While the score was 15-6 for the Wallabies on the hour mark, Sanchez took advantage of the opposing errors to grab a few points and then equalize (15-15). A score that has not moved while Reece Hodge has yet had the match point on a final penalty at the end of the match. Thanks to an already exceptional Nicolas Sanchez against New Zealand, Argentina continues once again thanks to the success at the foot of his number 10. The latter and Reece Hodge have therefore scored all the points of their selection in this meeting without testing.. In the standings, New Zealand, Argentina and Australia have six points. The next match will pit Argentina against New Zealand next Saturday, a rematch that promises to be exciting.
