Argentina v New Zealand - Live

Last updated: 30th September 2012  

Full TimeFull time ARGENTINA 15 - NEW ZEALAND 54


TRY79 TRY, NZ, JANE. 15-52. Cory Jane gets his hat-trick with an intercept try!

76 The Pumas just keep coming, but they look dead on their feet. The All Blacks are defending like true professionals, giving nothing away.

72 Jane chips and chases in search of his third try but Albacete is back to dot down. The big lock looks exhausted.

69 The Pumas are still pressing for a late try. After kicking to touch from a penalty, they knock on. The All Blacks can feed the scrum.

Penalty65 PENALTY, NZ, CRUDEN. 15-47. The All Blacks are just going through the motions until the full-time whistle.

63 Argentina are doing most of the playing but it's a little disjointed. They're trying to run it from everywhere...and it's not working very well.

Conversion60 CONVERSION, CRUDEN. 15-44

TRY59 TRY, NZ, NONU. 15-42. Oh! The tries keep coming. Nonu busts clear and jogs home to score under the posts!

58 Mass substitutions from New Zealand. McCaw, Carter and Aaron Smith and Franks all come off.

56 There's plenty of spirit left in this Pumas side and they keep hammering away. The home forwards are carrying like Trojans.

53 Carter's conversion attempt is wide.

TRY51 TRY, NZ, JANE. 15-37. Great hands and composure from Savea who draws three defenders to put Jane away!

Conversion50 CONVERSION, HERNANDEZ. 15-32.

TRY49 TRY, ARGENTINA, CAMACHO. 15-32. The Pumas bounce back! Camacho finds a gap between Woodcock and Franks and wriggles his way over!

47 The hosts send the ball through the hands from one end to the other. But they're going backwards. The ref bring them back for a penalty.

45 The All Blacks engage early so the Pumas have an attacking 5m scrum. Penalty! They call for another scrum!

43 The Pumas are plying the pressure just 5m short of the All Blacks line. The defence from McCaw and the front rowers is fantastic. The ball is stuck, scrum to NZ!

Second half Here we go for round two. Hernandez kicks us off. Carter kicks it back. Argentina look to build near the halfway line.

Half TimeHalf time ARGENTINA 8 - NEW ZEALAND 32

Conversion40 CONVERSION, CARTER. 8-32.

TRY39 TRY, NZ, SAVEA. 8-30. Julian Savea gets his second and the bonus point for the All Blacks! Another great pass from Kieran Read catches the Pumas out.

37 Carter's kick from 50m falls just short. The Pumas are full of running tonight as Hernandez has a tilt in centre field.

33 The ref gets roasted by the crowd for giving another penalty to New Zealand for the Pumas using their hands on the deck. Carter will have crack from long range.

TRY31 TRY, NZ, SAVEA. 8-25. Julian Savea has the enough pace to win the race to his own hack ahead. The TMO says the grounding is good.

Penalty29 PENALTY, NZ, CARTER. 8-20. Another rough call against the Pumas but Carter keeps the scoreboard ticking.

27 PENALTY, ARGENTINA, HERNANDEZ. 8-17. The home fly-half splits the uprights from 40m to break the 100 career Test point barrier.

Conversion25 CONVERSION, CARTER. 5-17. Great kick from the touchline from Carter.

TRY23 TRY, NZ, JANE. 5-15. Oh wow! What a try. Brilliant run and one-handed off-load from Kieran Read to put Cory Jane clear and the wing can score in the corner untouched!

Penalty20 PENALTY, NZ, CARTER. 5-10. Argentina can feel hard done by. The ref blows them up at the ruck, but they had every right to compete for that ball.

Conversion17 CONVERSION, CARTER. 5-7. New Zealand take the lead. Will the hosts be able to respond?

TRY15 TRY, NZ, A. SMITH. 5-5. Ma'a Nonu creates a try for Aaron Smith as he breaks up the centre of the field before offloading to his scrum-half, who scores under the sticks.

13 The All Blacks are making very little inroads against the very well-organised Pumas defence. Noise from the crowd is unbelievable.

10 Hernandez is wide with the conversion.

TRY8 TRY, ARGENTINA, LANDAJO!!!! 5-0. What a try Pumas! It goes wide in a set piece move from a line. Amorosino busts through the line outside Conrad Smith on a blitzing run. He is finally brought down but Martin Landajo has the gas to make it to the line!

6 Drop from Hernandez....no! It's just wide.

5 Both teams are happy to counter attack from deep. Amorosino has a run down the wing. Hernandez finds touch from a penalty. The Pumas are looking good!

3 McCaw spills it. The All Blacks are off their feet as they try recover it. Penalty to Argentina but Hernandez fails to find touch.

Kick off Here we go! Dan Carter kicks us off! It goes short, but the Pumas take it in. Landajo kicks. The All Blacks counter but Conrad Smith is caught. Penalty to New Zealand. Harsh call against Lobbe. Carter kicks for touch.

Team news Argentina's starting XV remains unchanged. The only changes made to the matchday 22 are on the bench as Phelan replaces prop Juan Pablo Orlandi with Marcos Ayerza and loose forward Tomas Vallejos for Leonardo Senatore.

Team news Fly-half Dan Carter returns to New Zealand's starting line-up. Aaron Cruden drops to the bench along with scrum-half Piri Weepu, which means Aaron Smith will wear the number nine jersey

Welcome Hello and welcome to La Plata in the East of Argentina where los Pumas are aiming for probably the biggest win of their recent history. Can they do it? We'll find out soon enough.
