Amorosino helps Argentina stun Australia

5th October 2014

New signing Lucas Amorosino helped Argentina stun Australia on Saturday and earn their first win since joining the Rugby Championship.

Tries from Tevita Kuridrani and Scott Higginbotham gave Australia an early advantage, Leonardo Senatore's try cut the deficit before half-time.

Argentina – with Amorosino starting on the left wing - took the lead thanks to Juan Imhoff's converted try on 53 minutes and maintained their advantage after.

The Pumas' first win in 18 Rugby Championship matches was also their first over Australia since 1997 and ended an eight-match losing streak.

Amorosino will link- up with Cardiff Blues this week as he starts his new career at the BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park.
