Top flight rugby in Argentina

WALLABY greats Richard Harry and Elton Flatley will join Sunshine Coast-based Chimu Adventures on a momentous rugby tour to celebrate the Wallabies' and Pumas' first four nations Rugby Championship match on Argentinean soil.

In the biggest shake-up of the tournament's 16-year history, the long-awaited inclusion of Argentina into what was the Tri Nations is hoped will breathe new life into the tournament.

The new format will see each team play six games: three at home and three away.

This year, the only Rugby Championship match scheduled in Queensland will see Australia play Argentina on the Gold Coast on September 15. Australia will also play its first match on Argentinean soil in 10 years against the Pumas when the two teams meet in Rosario on October 6.

Lucky fans can join Harry and Flatley on a seven-day tour of Argentina, taking in some of the country's best sites, including Buenos Aires and the Iguazu Falls, before heading to Rosario to watch the Wallabies.

Chimu Adventures' eight-day Four Nations Rugby Tour starts from $5640 and includes match tickets, all accommodation, transport, some meals, excursions and return flights ex Brisbane.
