Wallabies, Pumas draw in Sydney, All Blacks crowned Tri-Nations champions

Australia and Argentina have played to a draw in their final 2020 Tri-Nations clash at a wet Bankwest Stadium in Sydney on Saturday.

The match ended 16-all after Argentina led 13-6 at half-time.

SECOND STALEMATE IN THE TOURNAMENT

It was the second stalemate between the sides in the tournament after their previous 15-15 draw in Newcastle.

The Wallabies were reduced to 14 men mid-way through the second half when replacement lock Lukhan Salakaia-Loto was shown a straight red card for a dangerous head-high tackle.

In a match littered with cards, Australian skipper Michael Hooper spent 10 minutes in the sin-bin as well, while Argentina duo Marcos Kremer and Lucas Paulos were also yellow-carded.

Both sides picked up two points, leaving the All Blacks as tournament winners.

Argentina finished second in the standings on points difference, leaving Australia as the wooden-spoonists.
