In a topsy turvy affair the All Blacks are hanging on to a narrow 15 – 12 lead over Argentina’s Los Pumas.
The visitors opened the scoring account with a penalty before the All Blacks answered quickly via a well taken try by Samisoni Taukei’aho.
As has been the case all season under Ian Foster, the All Blacks have once again struggled in the discipline stakes as they have conceded several soft penalties.
Caleb Clarke scored the All Blacks second try to put the All-Blacks nerves at rest for the time being.
Capitalising on the All-Blacks mistakes, Michael Cheika’s side have more than stayed in the fight as they continually knocked over penalties.
On the stroke of half time Emiliano Boffelli knocked over Los Pumas fourth penalty setting the stage for what looks set to be a tense second forty.
