The Aussies followed up beating world champions South Africa two weeks in a row but extending their winning streak with a win over Argentina last weekend and marking the first time that the Wallabies have strung together a trio of consecutive victories in four years.

The 27-8 win over the Pumas in front of a near-packed out Townsville crowd, came despite the hosts being far from their best, with tries from Reece Hodge, Samu Kerevi and Andrew Kellaway ensuring the Aussies moved above South Africa in the Rugby Championship table.

Julian Montoya scored Argentina's only try of the game, with the defeat leaving them without a win in five Rugby Championship matches, having lost twice to both South Africa and New Zealand before last weekend's match.

With the Puma Trophy now sure to stay in Aussie hands after last week's win, Rennie may be tempted to rotate his side for this match, with one eye on the Wallabies' upcoming spring tour against Japan.

Follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get an Argentina vs Australia live stream of the Rugby Championship game wherever you are right now - starting with how to watch Argentina vs Australia for FREE in Australia.

How to watch Argentina vs Australia FREE in Australia

9Now streaming service

Aussie rugby fans can watch the Pumas vs Wallabies game without paying a penny thanks to Channel 9 and, more specifically, 9Gem.

Coverage starts at 4.30pm AEST, ahead of a 5.05pm kick-off.

You can also fire up an Argentina vs Australia live stream on the 9Now streaming service, which is completely free to use, too, and compatible with laptops, tablets, mobiles and an array of streaming services such as Apple TV, Chromecast, Fetch, PlayStation, Amazon Fire and smart TVs.

9Gem is showing all of the Wallabies' Rugby Championship games, which means they're all completely FREE to watch.

However, die-hard rugby fans might want to take a look at Stan Sport, which is live streaming every single Rugby Championship match, including this one. 

A subscription costs $10 per month (on top of a $10 Stan sub), but you can take advantage of a 7-day FREE trial.

If you're currently out of Australia but want to watch a Pumas vs Wallabies live stream, you'll need to get yourself a VPN as per the instructions below. 

How to live stream Argentina vs Australia from outside your country

If you're outside your country of residence - whether that be the UK or anywhere else - and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you'll soon discover that you can't, as it's location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.

By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream - assuming you comply with the broadcaster's fine print, of course - specifically its terms and conditions.
