Australia prepare to host Argentina in 2012 Rugby Championship.
After back-to-back defeats against World Champions New Zealand, Australia recorded their first win of the 2012 Rugby Championship with a 26-19 win over South Africa in Perth last week.
Next up the Aussies take on Argentina, newcomers to what was previously the Tri Nations.
In the absence of injured scrum-half Will Genia, second row Nathan Sharpe will captain the Wallabies for the third time on Saturday in his 109th test match, fittingly in the town in which he spent much of his early life.
The Pumas visit Gold Coast's Skilled Park on Saturday (15th September), and Sharpe anticipates a stern challenge.
SOUNDBITE (English): Nathan Sharpe, Wallabies Captain:
"Well, I think the guys will be aware that it's going to be very physical encounter. But I guess the unorthodox side of things is what you have to do is worry about what you're doing. So, if we can look after that, then and to a certain extent dismiss what different tactics they're employing, then that helps us be precise about what we're doing. We take that with a bit of aggression and certainly that will go a long way to you know solving the result of the match."
This will be Argentina's first match in Australia since the 2003 World Cup, when the Pumas lost the opening match to their hosts.
