New Zealand kept up their 100 percent begin to the Rugby Championship with a 39-22 reward point triumph over fearless Argentina at Yarrow Stadium.
The All Blacks needed to originate from 17-0 down to beat Australia in their last match and they were given another panic by the winless Pumas, who held a 22-15 second-half preferred standpoint.
Nehe Milner-Skudder and Anton Lienert-Brown scored early tries for New Zealand yet six focuses from the boot of Nicolas Sanchez and a colossal punishment from Emiliano Boffelli kept the guests in touch. Israel Dagg went over out wide just before the break to broaden the house side’s lead just for Sanchez to touch down on the last play of the half.
Beauden Barrett’s three missed changes enabled Sanchez to bump Argentina ahead at half-time and another Boffelli punishment soon after the restart gave them a 19-15 lead.
Everything seemed, by all accounts, to be going Argentina’s direction when Barrett was sin-binned and Sanchez put them seven focuses clear, yet the 14-man All Blacks drew level through Vaea Fifita’s changed over score.
The GAME was still to be determined with 20 minutes remaining yet tries from Damian McKenzie and Barrett either side of a Lima Sopoaga punishment gave New Zealand a third straight win.
