If this second clash between Argentina and Australia is anything like the first, we're in for another cracker. Los Pumas sprang out of the traps to lead 19-10 at the interval, only for the Wallabies to rally brilliantly in the absence of skipper Michael Hooper and run out 41-26 winners. Los Pumas are a different beast under Michael Cheika, but can they convert beautiful moments into 80 minutes of sustained excellence? Read on as our guide explains how to get an Argentina vs Australia live stream and watch the 2022 Rugby Championship online from anywhere.

Cheika has made four changes to the Argentina lineup, with wing Juan Imhoff, center Matias Moroni, loosehead prop Thomas Gallo, and scrum-half Gonzalo Bertranou coming into the team. They'll be buoyed by the news of numerous absences in the Aussie camp, and may also take some heart from the All Blacks' surprise victory earlier today.

James O'Connor makes his first start of the year for the Wallabies, taking the mantle from the injured Quade Cooper and Mr Versatile Reece Hodge, who starts on the bench. Folau Fainga'a joins Cooper on the physio table, which means Lachlan Lonergan starts in a Test for the first time.

Jordan Petaia sparked the Aussie fightback last weekend, before Fraser McReight (with a literal helping hand from debutant Jed Holloway), Fainga'a and Len Ikitau all crossed the whitewash, though Dave Rennie may be a little concerned about how smoothly Argentina were able to slice through his team.

It took five minutes for Pablo Matera to go over, after a slick interchange with Santiago Carreras. Juan Martin Gonzalez's effort was without doubt the try of the opening weekend. Juan Cruz Mallía started the move deep inside his own half, before offloading to Matera, who ran hard to set up the simplest task for Gonzalez.

Hodge was outstanding for the Aussies after replacing the stricken Quade Cooper, but is under no false impression that O'Connor and Noah Lolesio need a run in the team. Cheika's men, meanwhile, are going to have to re-enter battle without their own general Nicolas Sanchez, who's picked up an injury of his own.
