New Zealand and Argentina meet in a Tri Nations match at the Bankwest Stadium in Australia on Saturday. The All Blacks should welcome back a number of star players while Argentina have not featured in an international match for just over a year.

The lack of match practice and the superior quality of New Zealand should see the men in black run away with a comfortable win.

New Zealand Form & Team News


New Zealand have played Australia four times over the last five weeks so they are more than match fit coming into this clash against Argentina. The All Blacks won two of those four matches with comfort, with one ending in a draw and one defeat.

Last weekend New Zealand rested a number of first-choice players as they wanted to give the fringe players a run. It backfired as the Wallabies came out and won 24-22. Both teams ended the match with 14 men after after a couple of high tackles were harshly punished.

New Zealand are likely to revert back to their first choice team, or at least some of those players will be back. We will know more once the teams are selected.

Argentina Form & Team News


Argentina have not played Test rugby since the 2019 Rugby World Cup concluded. They were knocked out in the group stages of that tournament.

The few warm-up games the Pumas have had since arriving in Australia would hardly have prepared them for New Zealand. On average, the players have had about 100 minutes of playing time, although a number of European based players have played for their clubs recently.

With little rugby behind their back selection will be crucial. The overseas based players only recently joined up with the rest of the squad after having to quarantine. 

New Zealand vs Argentina Head to Head


New Zealand are 28-0 against Argentina with one draw in 1985. Their last meeting took place in the 2019 Rugby Championship where the All Blacks won 20-16 in Buenos Aires with a weakened team. 

New Zealand vs Argentina Odds


New Zealand are short priced at $1.02 while Argentina offering odds of $12.00. A draw is available at $51.00.

The handicap for the match is set at 23 points.

New Zealand vs Argentina Match Up


Argentina will be up for the fight as they always are. At set pieces they should be competitive enough but the longer the game goes, the more New Zealand will dominate. Around the 60 minute mark one would expect the All Blacks to start pulling well clear.

Verdict

New Zealand should have far too much quality for Argentina. I'm backing the All Blacks to cover the -23 handicap with ease.
