Wallabies have beaten Argentina 37-20 in the final match of this year’s Rugby Championship in the last hour.

Rugby league convert Marika Koroibete scored in the far left corner at the 20th minute of play.

Reece Hodge scored a try in each half to lift Australia for the win over Argentina.

The teams were locked 13‑13 at halftime after the Wallabies had scored first half tries through wingers Hodge and Marika Koroibete and the Pumas replied with a try to lock Matias Alemanno.

Tries to Bernard Foley for Australia and Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias for Argentina had the game tied up again midway through the second spell before scrumhalf Will Genia scored to give the Wallabies a lead they did not relinquish.

Hodge had a try disallowed in the second half but was still able to complete a double when he scored in the 77th minute.

Meanwhile, the All Blacks defeated South Africa 25-24 this morning.
