All Blacks vs Los Pumas Rugby live streaming After winning two and drawing one of their three Bledisloe Cup Tests against Australia, the All Blacks came unstuck against their trans-Tasman rivals in Brisbane last week, so nothing less than a convincing win against the Pumas will satisfy head coach Ian Foster and his charges. Foster fielded an experimental side in his side’s previous fixture but has named a strong matchday squad for this encounter, with several of his best players returning to the starting line-up as the All Blacks look to consolidate their position at the top of the Tri Nations table.

After two matches, the men in black have amassed six points in the standings with the Wallabies in second position on four points from the same number of games. Argentina bring up the rear in the truncated competition – after South Africa’s late withdrawal – and they face a daunting task against New Zealand, who have won 28 and drew one of the 29 Tests between these sides.

Apart from that statistic, the Pumas’ preparations for the Tri Nations have been far from ideal as their squad has battled to overcome the Covid-19 pandemic after several of their players and backroom staff tested positive for the virus over the past two months.

Despite that setback, they remain positive and number eight Rodrigo Bruni believes they will give a good account of themselves.“The key to this week is to give everything for this jersey,” he told reporters at training earlier this week.“The thing I highlight most about this group is that they never give up. A few months ago we were training and didn’t know whether we were going to play.”Meanwhile, Foster expects a response from his team after that defeat in Brisbane but is also wary of the Pumas, who have been in Australia for more than a month already.

“They’ve been here a while and they’ve probably had something most international teams never have, which is about three weeks of really solid training and preparation,” he said. “I’m sure their game understanding is going to be high.”He added: “They’ve had two really solid games against Australia A, and have shown a lot of the shape and flair we’ve become accustomed to seeing from them. We’re expecting a very well-organised team, and we’ve got to make sure they take a little while to adjust to the intensity of a test match.”

Players to watch:

For New Zealand: Although they lost to the Wallabies last week, one player who caught the eye for the All Blacks was Ardie Savea, who came to the fore with an outstanding all-round performance. Savea has proven over the years that he is comfortable in any back-row position but has made the number eight jersey his own this year and will be looking to continue where he left off in Brisbane. On that occasion, the All Blacks were on the back foot for long periods but Savea still gained 51 metres on attack from 10 carries, which included two clean breaks and five defenders beaten, while he also made a team-high 13 tackles on defence. If he hits his straps on Saturday, he should prove a handful for his opponents.

New Zealand to bounce back against Argentina

All Blacks vs Los Pumas Rugby live streaming If the All Blacks return to winning ways in style, Foster would likely finish his first season with two trophies. Anything less and the scrutiny on the new All Blacks coach would intensify. The first two Bledisloe Cup tests of 2020, resulting in a draw in Wellington and a win for the All Blacks in Auckland, were not part of the Tri-Nations and have no bearing on the standings.

ANALYSIS: The All Blacks would effectively clinch the Tri-Nations title if they were to hammer Argentina in Newcastle on Saturday night. Last Saturday’s 15-15 draw between the Wallabies and the Pumas was a favourable result for the All Blacks because it ensured they remained top, with each team on six points.The All Blacks, who play their final Tri-Nations match against the Pumas after losing 25-15 to them in an historic upset in Sydney on November 14, have to bounce back in the fifth round this weekend or their title hopes are toast.Ian Foster’s side have won one and lost two of their three matches but are still first because of a superior points differential.

TRI NATIONS 2020

Championship Log P W D L P+/- Pts
New Zealand 3 1 0 2 80/54 6
Argentina 2 1 1 0 40/30 6
Australia 3 1 1 1 44/80 6
Head-to-head: Both sides have several attacking threats in their line-ups but the duel out wide that sees Caleb Clarke and Bautista Delguy clash should be an entertaining one between two players with contrasting styles. Clarke took Test rugby by storm with a couple of excellent performances during the earlier Bledisloe Cup games. An explosive runner, who relies on his physicality to beat defenders, the 21-year-old is difficult to stop once he builds up a head of steam and he will be keen to test Delguy’s defence with some barnstorming runs early on. The Argentinian is much smaller and lighter than Clarke – who has a 26 kilogram weight advantage – so his defence will need to be at its best, but he too has the ability to set the game alight with his attacking skills. An elusive runner, who possesses a great step and excellent ball skills, the 23-year-old will keep Clarke on his toes if he gets into his stride.

All Blacks vs Los Pumas Rugby live streaming However, points differential is not the primary tiebreaker if two or more teams were tied on competition points at the end of the tournament.In fact, under the competition rules outlined by the Tri-Nations organisers, Sanzaar, it’s third.The first tiebreaker is the team with the most wins in the competition. The second is determined by the team with the most wins against the other team (or teams) tied on the same points.

Rugby Championship: New Zealand v Argentina
New Zealand (3) 15
Tries: Cane, Clarke Con: Mo’unga Pen: Mo’unga
Argentina (16) 25
Try: Sanchez Con: Sanchez Pens: Sanchez 6

The three teams are currently tied on one win before the penultimate round. The All Blacks beat Australia 43-5 in the first round, Australia beat the All Blacks 24-22 in the second, and Argentina beat the All Blacks in the third. Australia and Argentina drew their fourth-round match.As it stands, the All Blacks are first because their points differential is +26 – better than Argentina’s +10 and Australia’s -36 – and the 38-point thrashing of the Wallabies to retain the Bledisloe Cup on October 31 could be the vital result in the final equation. Remember, four competition points are awarded for a win, two points for a draw, and a bonus point is awarded if a team scores three or more tries than their opponent, or for a loss within seven points or fewer.

Let’s keep it as simple as possible because the permutations are complicated.Bonus points are likely to be decisive and it’s unlikely that anything more than points differential would be needed to determine which teams are placed higher if they’re tied on competition points.The most points the All Blacks can finish with is 11 and beating Argentina with a comfortable bonus-point win, while preventing the Pumas from grabbing a losing bonus point, would make it difficult for them to be knocked off top spot in the final round.

All Blacks vs Los Pumas Rugby live streaming  The All Blacks, who are still heavy favourites to gain revenge against Argentina on Saturday, would finish with two wins and two losses. Neither the Wallabies nor the Pumas could finish with more than two wins, their record against the All Blacks would be 1-1, and points differential would be what it comes down to.If Argentina and Australia were to start the competition’s final match on six points on December 5, with the All Blacks on 11, they would be in a position where they have to improve their points differential exponentially if they’re any chance of winning the Tri-Nations.

All Blacks vs Los Pumas Rugby live streaming Argentina beat New Zealand for the first time in their history with a 25-15 win in the Rugby Championship.The match was Argentina’s first Test in 13 months, and their victory ensured the All Blacks suffered a second defeat in a row, after losing to Australia.The Pumas led 16-3 at the break and kept New Zealand at bay to secure a famous and shock win in Sydney.”This is a big day for Argentina rugby and also for our country and people,” said Argentina captain Pablo Matera.

“It very tough there at the moment and it was tough for us to come here and prepare ourselves for this tournament.”We just want to show our people that if you work hard with a lot of determination you can get things done.”We are really proud of this team and of our country.”Victory was Argentina’s first in 30 Test matches against the All Blacks.Fly-half Nicolas Sanchez scored all of their points with a try, six penalties and a conversion.

New Zealand, who lost 24-22 to Australia last week in Brisbane, have been beaten in two consecutive Test matches for the first time since August 2011.”They probably brought more intensity,” said All Blacks captain Sam Cane. “Their defence was outstanding.”We couldn’t really get our game going and put them under any pressure with the ball. Too many little errors and ill-discipline issues and they kept the scoreboard ticking over.”We weren’t good enough, which is extremely disappointing but full credit to them.”

Analysis

Chris Jones, BBC rugby union correspondent This is one of the most sensational results in recent rugby union history, especially when you consider how Argentina had not played a Test match since the Rugby World Cup 13 months ago.They were expected to be thrashed by a battle-hardened New Zealand; remember world champions South Africa pulled out of the Rugby Championship citing a lack of match preparation time.While it is a famous day for the Pumas and a huge result for world rugby, the All Blacks inquest will begin. They have now lost two in a row for the first time since 2011 and look a shadow of the all-conquering side they were under Steve Hansen.Ian Foster was a controversial appointment to many. Given he only has a two-year contract, he finds himself under pressure already.
