All Blacks come from behind to beat Argentina

September 10, 2017

The All Blacks have come from behind to beat Argentina and maintain their 100% record in the Rugby Championship.

The All Blacks trailed 16-15 at half-time but recovered to seal a 39-22 win at Yarrow Park in New Plymouth.

Rookie flanker Vaea Fifita’s try, while the home side was down to 14 men after Beauden Barrett had been sin-binned, brought the scores level at 22-22.

Until then, the Pumas were heading for a major upset and their first win over New Zealand in 25 attempts.

The victory puts the All Blacks top of the table, after South Africa drew 23-23 with Australia in Perth.

Argentina, who joined the competition in 2012, lie bottom of the table of four nations, without a point so far.

The result means South Africa remain unbeaten in six Tests this year, but they sit three points behind world champions New Zealand, who they meet next in the championship.
