    Argentina 15-15 Australia – Nicolas Sanchez helps Pumas rescue draw in Tri-Nations clash

    Argentina 15-15 Australia: Nicolas Sanchez’s boot helps Pumas fight back from nine points down to rescue draw in Tri-Nations clash

    • Reece Hodges’ five penalties had given Australia a commanding nine-point lead
    • Fly-half Nicolas Sanchez scored five penalties for Argentina to rescue a draw
    • Frustrated Australia coach Dave Rennie said: ‘We should have closed that out.’

    Fly-half Nicolas Sanchez held his nerve with the boot as Argentina hit back from 15-6 down to claim a 15-15 draw against Australia in the Tri-Nations Series.

    Australia had plenty of possession early on and established a nine-point lead just before the hour thanks to five penalties from fly-half Reece Hodge. But Sanchez, who scored all of Argentina’s points, split the posts with five penalties, the last two from 45 metres and into a headwind, as the spoils were shared.

    Australia will rue their inability to make their first-half dominance count, but they had an opportunity to snatch victory two minutes from time, only for Hodge to fluff his lines with a 40-metre penalty kick from an acute angle.

    All three teams in the competition move on to six points going into next weekend’s penultimate fixture when Argentina take on the All Blacks at the same venue in Newcastle.

    Australia’s New Zealander coach Dave Rennie said: ‘Really frustrated, really disappointed.

    ‘At 15-6, we had control of the game. We had some chances to kick for the corners and we had some good kicking, but it looks like they got bored with it. We should have closed that out.’
