Average first half for the All Blacks on Saturday night, Argentina certainly brought their usual forwards-oriented game. The usual handling errors ended up giving Argentina a try which is lucky, considering that is all they scored all game. We did step it up in the second half at least, and when Argentina ran out of puff at around the hour mark it was like a repeat of the World Cup quarter final, 21-5 at full time. Nice to see Cruden slotting in as well as he did after only playing nine minutes in the last month. With Carter out for next week lets hope he steps it up a notch again. At least weather won't be a problem in Dunedin!
Sucks to see the Wallabies lose their third-choice captain, they're like our fly-halves last year! As Dingo Deans joked, perhaps they should stop naming captains?
