Australia captain Stephen Moore was proud of his team's performance as they beat Argentina 34-9 in Mendoza to go top of the Rugby Championship.

The result sets up a trophy deciding showdown against New Zealand in Sydney on Saturday, August 8, with South Africa now out of the running on two points.

In a physical game, Australia ran in four tries as Joe Tomane, Dean Mumm, Tevita Kuridrani and Adam Ashley-Cooper crossed, leaving Moore pleased.

"We're very happy with the win. It's always hard to come over here and win. Obviously we slipped up last year over, here so tonight was very good and I'm very proud of the performance," he told the Australian Rugby website.

"I thought it (the scrum) was a good contest. Argentina has a very strong scrum. It was hard work in the first-half but similar to South Africa last week our bench came on and really made a big difference for us.

"It's going to be a massive game in Sydney at our home ground. We're really looking forward to that, we know that they are a quality side but we have two weeks to prepare."
