Wallabies told they'll lose via Snapchat

It's not exactly a full-on war cry, but Argentinian halfback Tomas Cubelli says he has been using social media to cheekily tell the Wallabies they are destined for defeat in Saturday night's clash in Perth.

Cubelli is good friends with a host of Wallabies players after linking up with the Brumbies in Super Rugby ranks last season.

Argentina have lost 11 of their past 12 matches against the Wallabies, including last year's semi-final at the World Cup.

But Cubelli is optimistic of causing an upset this weekend, and he's been letting his Brumbies teammates know about it.

Scott Sio and Tevita Kuridrani have worn the brunt of his Snapchats.

"I was going to training, and I send them one saying we are going to beat them," Cubelli said with a smile.

"It will be good fun to see them "

Argentina have impressed during the Rugby Championship.

They beat South Africa late last month, before pushing the All Blacks for 50 minutes on enemy territory last week.

Argentina haven't played Australia since losing the World Cup semi-final 29-15 in Twickenham, and the pain from that defeat is still present.

"It really hurt," Cubelli said.

"We knew it was a great (Wallabies) team, but we thought that we could win that game.

"We wanted to get to the finals in England. That was our dream.

"It was hard not winning but I think Australia played a better game. They were more efficient, their defence, and some of their kicking game was better."

Cubelli said with Argentina now part of the Rugby Championship, they were no longer nervous whenever they go up against the world's best teams.

"It's something we can handle and we feel strong enough and skilled enough to win games," Cubelli said.
