All Blacks coach Steve Hansen says experience will be critical against Argentina

New Zealand were superb in the first half and sloppy in the second as they overcame Argentina 36-10 in Buenos Aires on Saturday in the Rugby Championship. The score remained the same at half-time and the New Zealanders did not add to their score until the siren sounded at the end of the match.

South Africa, who host New Zealand in Cape Town on Saturday after being humiliated 57-0 in New Zealand this month, have 13 points, Australia 10 and Argentina none.

Read's double and tries to Damian McKenzie and Waisake Naholo gave them a 29-3 lead by the interval and David Havili scored a try on debut late in the second half.

New Zealand, who have won 24 and drawn one of their previous 25 tests against Argentina, can retain the title if they win before closing the championship against South Africa on October 7.

San Juan mayor answers Trump's Twitter attack
Addressing members of the media, Cruz slammed FEMA's response, saying , "If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying ". Trump on Wednesday, however, said he was considering lifting the Jones Act.

Naholo crossed over in the second half but it was ruled out for a forward pass after Argentina closed the gap thanks to Juan Manuel Leguizamon. "We did a lot of things well - I thought we attacked well, we defended courageously at times".

"Playing the All Blacks always represents a special challenge because it means facing the best team in the world and that motivates you in a very special way", head coach Daniel Hourcade said.

"After having a torrid tussle against us in New Plymouth, Argentina will be even more determined on their home pitch and in front of their passionate fans".

"We are still hurting obviously from the previous result against them, but we will prepare as well as we can and we will be ready for them at Newlands", Coetzee said.
