Australia’s Israel Folau tackled by Argentina’s Marcelo Bosch in the semi-final played at Twickenham.

Australia beat Argentina 29-15 to set up a clash with the All Blacks in the Rugby World Cup final at Twickenham.

The Wallabies scored four tries, while Argentina relied on penalty kicks to score their 15 points.

The first try came from an intercept by Wallaby lock Rob Simmons in the opening minutes of the game.

The second came from a lovely Bernard Foley cut out pass to winger Adam Ashley-Cooper who scored in the right corner.

Foley nailed both conversions to give Australia a 14-6 lead, with Argentina scoring from two penalty kicks.

Argentina hit back with two more penalty goals in the second half to Australia’s one, but Ashley-Cooper sealed the win, and Australia’s spot in a fourth World Cup final, with his third try with eight minutes remaining, when he cashed in on a brilliant run by fellow winger Drew Mitchell.

Worringly for coach Michael Chieka was a suspected flare up of an ankle injury to star fullback Israel Folau, who left the field midway through the second half of the bruising encounter.
