It looked a whole lot more like business as usual in the Tri-Nations last weekend, with under-fire New Zealand running riot over Argentina having suffered a shock loss to the burgeoning rugby power earlier in the competition. Let's not forget how touch this Argentinian side are, though. In addition to knocking off the Kiwis in their first encounter, they also drew with Australia - their opponents today - earlier in the tournament. Read on as we explain how to get an Australia vs New Zealand live stream and watch Tri-Nations 2020 rugby online wherever you are right now.

Australia vs Argentina live stream

Australia vs Argentina is being played at the Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta, with kick-off scheduled for 7.45pm AEDT (that's 8.45am GMT in the UK and a 5.45am start in Argentina). The clash is being shown live on the 10 Network, Fox Sports and Kayo Sports (opens in new tab) in Australia - but wherever you are, having a good VPN in your pack (opens in new tab) will let you stream your preferred coverage all over the world.

Up in that 38-0 drubbing by the All-Blacks, the performances of Mario Ledesma's men had been the highlight of the Tri-Nations, but things look very different for the Pumas this week. 

Not only are they heading into their second clash against the Aussies still smarting from that heavy defeat, but they now also find themselves embroiled in a racism controversy that means a trio of experienced players will miss the match - captain Pablo Matera and teammates Guido Petti and Santiago Socino being suspended by the Argentinian rugby authorities for alleged xenophobic tweets.

Instead, head coach Ledesma will name inside centre Jeronimo de la Fuente captain for today's encounter, which follows on from a 15-15 draw between the two nations back in November that, coupled with New Zealand's win over Argentina last week, means the Rugby Championship trophy is headed to Wellington. 

Nevertheless, fans can expect an entertaining encounter today with plenty of pride at stake from these two fiercely competitive sides, with Australia in particular still having a lot to prove. Follow our guide as we explain where to find a Australia vs Argentina live stream and watch the Tri-Nations rugby online wherever you are in the world right now.
