The pressure is mounting on Aussie head coach Michael Cheika after their 2019 Rugby Championship campaign go off to a losing start against South Africa. While Argentina will feel hard done by after an agonising 20-16 defeat to New Zealand in Buenos Aires in their opening game of the tournament, and will be out to right that wrong today. It’s set to be an absorbing game, and one you can watch in full with our Australia vs Argentina live stream guide below.
The Wallabies have won just four of their 13 Test matches last year, and their opponents today aren’t likely to offer any sympathy.
Australia vs Argentina – where and when
Today’s 2019 Rugby Championship match takes place at the 52,500 capacity Lang Park Stadium in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
Kick-off today is at 7.45pm AEST local time, so that’s 6.45am Beunos Airies time (so a 10.45am BST start for those looking to watch the game live in the UK).
Having been so comprehensively beaten in their last game, it’s no surprise to find that Australia will be rising the changes for today’s clash with both the backs and forwards set to see different personnel. Lang Park is a venue where they have had more success than any other ground on home soil and the Wallabies will be hoping they can get back to winning ways today and get back some much needed morale as the run-in for the World Cup draws ever closer.
The Pumas defeated Australia 23-19 on their last trip Down Under, ending a 35-year wait for a win in Australia and they will certainly fancy their chances today. If they do pull off another win, they’ll have to do it without their inspirational hooker Agustin Creevy who is ruled out thanks to a shoulder injury he picked up against the All Blacks last week.
We’re in for a fascinating face-off, so keep scrolling down to see how you can catch a 2019 Rugby Championships live stream of Australia vs Argentina.
