Argentina will never have a better chance of registering their maiden Rugby Championship victory than when they meet struggling Australia in Perth on this upcoming Saturday night.

The Wallabies go into this game on the back of five defeats in their last six outings, including comprehensive losses to the British Lions, New Zealand and South Africawho thumped them by a record 38-12 in Brisbane last week.

Australia are in a state of crisis and head coach Ewen McKenzie—who was appointed after Robbie Deans' sacking following the series loss to the Lionsneeds to turn things around, and quickly.

Although yet to win a Rugby Championship match, the Pumas have been competitive in two of their three games this campaign, including on their last outing in Waikato when they pushed the All Blacks before going down 28-13.

Both sides have much to play for, for differing reasons, and we look at players who need to step up this weekend.
