New Zealand kept up their victory streak, earning the team’s 21st consecutive win in the game against South Africa. But it wasn’t an easy victory for the world champions. At half time, the Springboks were up 7-6 but a joint effort try by captain Richie McCaw at 45 minutes put the home side up. A penalty for each side brought the score to 14-10 to the All Blacks at full time. It was a tight game and both sides persistently fought for possession.
Even a late surge of energy from Argentina was not enough for the team to earn a victory against Australia. The 32-25 defeat could easily have been a larger margin for Australia, but the home side was unable to bring the total try count to four due to a persistent Argentine side.
The All Blacks will be looking to extend their 21-match unbeaten streak and edge closer to their own 23-win world record with a win over Argentina. Argentina will be looking to make an international statement by defeating the world champions. With these two psychological advantages coming against one another, it will be a fascinating game.
Hooker Dane Coles, who was expected to start in this Sunday’s game and then travel home for the birth of his first child, has instead left early. Coles’ wife is expecting the baby shortly, which has meant the hooker is leaving space for Kevin Mealamu to start and Bay of Plenty’s Nathan Harris to travel over for his black jersey debut.
Argentine coach Daniel Hourcade has cut his squad ahead of the match against the All Blacks. Two players – injured flanker Juan Manuel Leqguizamon and hooker Santiago Iglesias Valdez – have been dropped from the team that played Australia and New Zealand earlier in September. It seems the Pumas are doing everything they can to defeat the All Blacks and to earn their first win in 16 games.
National and international media alike threw up their arms in horror at Aaron Cruden missing the flight to Argentina due to a late night in Auckland town. But Cruden’s mistake, which resulted in a reprimand from coach Steve Hansen and cost the player his next two test matches, may just be the perfect opening for Beauden Barrett. The number 10 started in the last match-up in round three against Argentina, filling in for an injured Aaron Cruden. The opening has also allowed Canterbury’s Tom Taylor to travel over to Argentina as backup for the next two games. It was a disappointing mistake for Cruden, but could mean some great rugby from the visiting side, showcasing the depth of New Zealand’s kickers.
Argentina’s morale might be low, but the last 20 minutes of the game against South Australia was proof that if the team gets fired up, they have the potential to steal a win. The All Blacks have a few key players out – Dan Carter still missing from the line-up from injury, Aaron Cruden out due to a missed flight and a bad decision, Dane Coles returning back to New Zealand for his child’s birth. The team will need to work together to continue to the winning streak. We predict an All Blacks win by 17 points.
