Rugby Union World Cup 2015 Argentina v Australia match Highlights & Tries 25 October 2015
Rugby World Cup 2015 / Semi-final
Game of Rugby World Cup 2015. In this match Argentina national rugby union team play with Australia national rugby union team.
Australia reached their fourth Rugby World Cup final with a 29-15 victory over Argentina at Twickenham on Sunday thanks to a hat-trick of tries from wing Adam Ashley-Cooper.
The Pumas showed glimpses of the attacking rugby which has lit up this World Cup in the second half but could not recover from a disastrous opening 40 minutes, even though five penalties from Nicolas Sanchez kept their hopes alive until the closing stages.
Australia led 19-9 after a first half punctuated by setbacks to the Pumas. They were behind to an intercept try from lock Rob Simmons within 70 seconds and lost key players Juan Imhoff and captain Agustin Creevy to injury.
Ashley-Cooper (pictured above) scored twice, from superb miss passes by Bernard Foley and Matt Giteau, the second while Argentina lock Tomas Lavanini was in the sin bin for a marginal TMO call for a 'no-arms' tackle.
