Wallabies stick tight despite big defeat

5:44 pm on 9 September 2013

Austrailan rugby playmaker Christian Lealiifano is adamant the team remains unified despite their poor start under new coach Ewen McKenzie.

Saturday's 38-12 loss to South Africa was the Wallabies' fourth straight defeat and third since McKenzie took over as coach.

The pressure is building on the team ahead of Saturday night's test against Argentina in Perth.

Australia haven't lost to Argentina since 1997 and Lealiifano says the team remains upbeat despite their horrible start to the Rugby Championship.
