Wallabies rookie Andrew Kellaway has once again topped our player ratings with Australia’s comfortable 32-17 Rugby Championship win over Argentina on the Gold Coast.
Kellaway’s hat-trick took him to eight tries in his debut season, leaving only Israel Folau’s 10 for the most five points in a calendar year.
The Wallabies have four games left on their Spring Tour of the Northern Hemisphere.

1: James Slipper 7/10
Very good scrum performance to lay the platform.
2: Cruise line 6/10
A few wobbles with lineout throws, but had some good runs wide and took a well-taken attempt from a maul.
3: Taniela Tupou 6/10
A scrum-time force, but some unusual mistakes marred his performance.

4: Izack Rodda 5.5/10
Steady attendance with some early charges. Was knocked out for 10 minutes in the second half.
5: Darcy Swain 6.5/10
Performed admirably – especially during the lineout where he had a few takes, a steal and was a constant disturbance when defending mauls.
6: Piet Samu 5.5 / 10
Just reward for a series of strong bench trips and added a nice lineout goal while doing his core duties around the paddock.

7: Michael Hooper 7.5/10
Another tireless performance until the last minute with a yellow card.
8: Rob Valetini 8.5/10
A very good performance for the full 80. Was involved early and often in damaging runs, tackles, link play and an excellent try assist for Kellaway’s first try.
9: Nic White 7/10
Pinpoint again with box kicks and organized procedures.
10: Quad Cooper 6/10
Poor goalscoring performance, with a hot and cold performance around the pitch, but showed a nice dexterity to put Samu Kerevi in for his attempt.
11: Andrew Kellaway 9.5/10
Shift to left wing, then fullback as the game went on but kept producing tries – with a hat trick reflecting a great effort throughout the match.

12: Samu Crayfish 6.5/10
Just started to find more space before coming off with a leg injury.
13: Len Ikitau 7.5 / 10
Opportunities were elusive in the first half but came really strong in the third quarter, including a highlight reel back flick pass for Kellaway to score.
14: Jordan Petaia 7/10
Strongly involved in the park and demonstrated the X factor the selectors are looking for.
15: Reece Hodge 6.5/10
Enthusiastic and seemingly always around the ball for most of the game. Moved to midfield as injury cover in the second half.

Came on to replace Jordan Petaia then roamed the field while he was at it.
17: Angus Bell 7/10
Looked very good with nice passes and strong attacks.
18: Greg Holmes 5/10
Played his first game in a Wallabies jumper since 2016 and delivered 17 minutes of solid work.
19: Matt Philip 5.5/10
Showed energy after emerging in the last quarter.
20: Sean McMahon 6/10
Another high-profile returnee showed some very nice details in the space to suggest there’s a lot more to come.

Made an immediate impact receiving a turnover penalty while defending hard.
22: James O’Connor 5.5/10
Unable to take charge of proceedings as game unraveled in final stages.

Returned to the test crew and showed some good enthusiasm.
