Easy start from the Wallabies in the first half with two early tries on the board from Reece Hodge & Samu Kerevi as well as a successful three-point penalty, they dominated the pitch whenever with the ball on hand mightily which gave plenty of chances to execute as reflected so far tonight.
Meanwhile, Los Pumas won a few penalties where they successfully converted one of their three-point goals thanks to their brilliant defensive shape, but they haven’t had the opportunity to kick on especially when trying to get out of their own territory which lacked possession.
HALF-TIME: Wallabies 17-3 Los Pumas
In the end, Wallabies continued to dominate the Los Pumas half with more opportunities with the ball especially when they had a few fresh faces off the bench which saw Andrew Kellaway touch down for another big score & safeguarded another straight win.
And the Pumas may have used the resets well where skipper Julian Montoya orchestrated the maul that converted into a TRY himself just after half-time, but apart from that they haven’t improved much unfortunately with little to no support numbers to build pressure back to the Wallabies & it prevented them from catching up the scoreboard.
FULL-TIME: Wallabies 27-8 Los Pumas
