Wallabies overcome Argentina Pumas to make skipper Michael Hooper proud

The Wallabies have opened their Rugby Championship campaign with a rousing 41-26 victory over Argentina, dedicating the win to absent skipper Michael Hooper.

Centre Len Ikitau crossed for their fifth try five minutes after full-time in Mendoza to snare a bonus point as the Wallabies rallied from a 19-10 halftime deficit and piled on 31 points after the break.

But the win looked to have come at a cost with playmaker Quade Cooper assisted from the field with an apparent ankle injury.

The Australians entered the Test without talismanic captain Hooper, who withdrew from the tour the day before the game for mental health reasons.
