Castle Lager Rugby Championship – All Blacks almost certain to take championship after beating Pumas again


It was a much better performance from the Pumas, specially in the second half but not enough to upset the All Blacks on Saturday.

The All Blacks is almost certain of taking the Rugby Championship away from the Springboks after yet another bonus point win in the Championship.

Even with many of their first choice players not on the park in the second test against Argentina the All Blacks was still far too good for the Pumas and beat them 36-13 at the end.

The score flatter the All Blacks a bit, with a much better performance form the the Pumas on the night in Brisbane.

It was two tries for Vaa’i with Tuipulotu, Perenara and Taukei’aho chipping in as well for the New Zealanders.

It took the All Blacks just about four minutes to get on the board with their first try of the match and took a healthy lead of 24-3 at the break.

The Pumas was again just defending in that first half and a few chances went a begging again because of poor finishing and some good defence from the men in black.

At stadiums in that second half the All Blacks look ordinary but still kept the Pumas out form scoring any more points.

Argentina without a win so far in the competition will now have to turn their attention to Australia to see if they can get a win out of the last two test matches.

The All Blacks will face South Africa next in the 100th test match between the two nations and that will be followed up with another one a week later.
