Rugby World Cup: Aussie fans delighted as Wallabies enter final

Australian rugby fans expressed their delight on Monday (October 26) as the Wallabies advanced to the 2015 Rugby World Cup final after beating a determined Argentina.

The Wallabies 29-15 win over Argentina in the semi-final at Twickenham means that Australia will take on the New Zealand All Blacks for the first time ever in a Rugby World Cup final on Sunday (November 1).

This will be Australia`s 4th Rugby World Cup final.

Wallabies winger Adam Ashley-Cooper scored a hat trick of tries, much to the delight of Australian fans, finally proving too good for the Argentinean Los Pumas` challenge.

"Well, it`s certainly an exciting win by Australia over a very determined Argentinean side and it sets up a really good final now against New Zealand All Blacks," said rugby fan and retiree, Daryl O`Reilly.

"I thought it was great, Australia winning, the Wallabies and hopefully they can make it through the final and beat New Zealand," said another fan Tony Frey.
But not all were optmistic.

"They did really well, defended really well, ah don`t know how they`ll go against the All Blacks but they put in a good performance," said business owner Mark Barcat.

Argentina will now play South Africa to determine 3rd place on Saturday (October 31).
