Australia head coach Ewen McKenzie wasn't just asked to field questions about his team's performance following the win over Argentina.

A dismal crowd of only 14,281 turned out at the Cbus Super Stadium on Australia's Gold Coast for the Test match.

The spectacle wasn't a bad one, with six tries scored and late drama as the Wallabies won 32-25, but the low crowd is something that McKenzie is keen to fix.

Under his era Australia have noticeably opened up their attack, but that seemingly needs to happen on a consistent basis to win back supporters.

“There's lots of factors going on there but in the end we want to be playing in front of the biggest crowds we can find,” McKenzie told AAP.

“It's a great venue and it would be nice to have a full stadium; that's the objective, to fill stadiums.

“It's up to us to do our bit as a team, we have to try and get people coming back and watching.”
