Wallabies captain Michael Hooper urged his team to make the most of their chance to win a major late silver piece by beating Argentina in their next two tests

The fate of the three Wallabies nations is indeed in their hands after the shock defeat of the All Blacks against the Pumas last Saturday

The wins over Argentina on Saturday night in Newcastle and again on December 5 at Bankwest Stadium will secure the Wallabies the Tri-Nations trophy no matter what happens on Saturday week when New Zealand meets the Pumas again

The Wallabies last won the rugby championship, this year being played as a tri-nation series due to South Africa’s late withdrawal, in 2015

Their barren 18-year period for the Bledisloe Cup is even longer, not to mention a World Cup drought dating back to 1999

“We want to grow as a team and be a cohesive team, and with that, we have no doubt that we want to put silverware back in our closet,” said Hooper

“To do that we have to build strong performances and (coach) Dave (Rennie) talks about it a lot every day so that is reflected in our training

“This is the goal for us, talk about it day to day and what it generates is good results and good results It allows you to move forward at a constant pace

“We clearly know what we are trying to accomplish The pressure is strong that we want to be able to do it

“We had the Bledisloe Cup (before the Tri-Nations) and it’s a shame we couldn’t hold it this year

Among those who oppose the way the Wallabies win the Tri-Nations is their former coach Michael Cheika, who is part of the Argentina squad for this series.

Cheika’s motivational skills were crucial in giving the Pumas the conviction and confidence that they could beat the All Blacks last weekend, and he is sure to bring the Argentines back up ahead of the kickoff. sent Saturday evening

“I was very happy that ‘Sheik’ was in this environment, in this role it’s going to be good,” said Hooper

“I don’t really know what he’s saying He speaks a lot of languages, but he doesn’t speak Spanish very well, so I don’t know how his communication is going, but I’m sure he brings much to this environment

“He can offer a lot” Sheik “is a great trainer I’m sure he’s keeping these guys on their toes after their performance last week but it’s imperative for us to focus on ourselves and on what we want to deliver

“That’s the problem with the rugby test match. It’s us against them and they want to play their game harder”
