But he felt a lift in their intensity and urgency in the second half was key to the Wallabies revival, with the victory coming after last week's disappointing draw with South Africa.

League convert Marika Koroibete could be in line for a Wallabies starting berth after impressing coach Michael Cheika in his global debut.

They never looked back from there with Folau, halfback Will Genia, his replacement Nick Phipps and rookie hooker Jordan Uelese sharing the five- pointers.

"At halftime I didn't have to say anything", Cheika told Fox Sports' Rod Kafer after the match.

Australia are now third on the Rugby Championship standings following a draw and two defeats while Argentina are yet to register a point after two defeats to South Africa and another loss to New Zealand.

The Wallabies have now won 14 of their last 15 games against the Pumas and have lost only once to Argentina in 14 Tests at home.

The Pumas dominated territory and possession in the first half and scored the opening try in the 23rd minute after 14 phases.

Argentina replied with tries by scrumhalf Martin Landajo and wing Matias Moroni, while flyhalf Nicolas Sanchez was on target with both conversions and two penalties.

But Australia hit back through Folau, who backed up slick passing between Kurtley Beale, Sean McMahon and Foley to go over for his opening try.

Australia overcame a terrible first half performance to register their first win of the Rugby Championship as Argentina once again hit the wall and conceded late points in Canberra to ruin their early success.

The Wallabies turned around a 13-10 half-time deficit to run out 45-20 winners and keep alive their chances of finishing second in this year's tournament.
