Oct. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Australia beat Argentina 25-19 in the final match of the southern hemisphere’s inaugural Rugby Championship to finish in second place behind New Zealand.

Winger Digby Ioane ran in the Wallabies’ only try in Rosario, while Mike Harris kicked six penalties and a conversion. Juan Imhoff touched down for the Pumas, who also got four penalties and a conversion.

New Zealand earlier beat South Africa 32-16 to complete a six-game sweep and finish atop the standings with 26 points. Sam Whitelock, Aaron Smith, Ma’a Nonu and Conrad Smith got tries at FNB Stadium in Soweto and Dan Carter kicked 12 points for the top-ranked All Blacks, who outscored the Springboks 20-0 in the second half.

Bryan Habana touched down for South Africa to tie former New Zealand full-back Christian Cullen’s record of seven tries in one southern hemisphere championship campaign.
