New Zealand had their best performance of the season, beating Pumas to make up for last week’s defeat
It needed convincing proof, as well as a victory, to make up for last week’s astounding defeat: that’s how it was. The All Blacks play the All Blacks match and crush Argentina 53-3. 7 goals scored by Foster’s team, which breathes a huge sigh of relief and will be able to prepare (relatively) calmly for the rugby tournament final against Australia, which will be crucial to allocate a tournament that has never been balanced.
All Blacks-Argentina: The Record
The All Blacks start at full speed, and immediately put pressure on Pumas by recovering an important ball and earning a free kick, which Mo’Unga converts to the first three points of the match. The New Zealanders set the record straight even in an organized melee, and the action leading up to Ethan de Groot’s target begins from an advanced pack. Five-a-side football for Haveli was somehow picked up by Ewan, who outlasted two opponents and found a lead up front: Argentina made 4 fouls in the same action, but not enough to stop the prop goal, 10-0.
The All Blacks are furious, and at 19 they score a second goal after a great job: first a Mo’Unga soccer ball for Jordan, then the action continues and Cane was very good at opening the way for Ioane with a pass under pressure. . New Zealander 13 finds 2 against 1 and serves up Clark who ends up at the flag. Mo’unga turns 17-0.
The first response arrived from Argentina at 24 minutes, inspired by a beautiful play by Pablo Matera. He goes to a row 5 meters after a free kick: Montoya goes to the first block and activates the hit, which does not advance. The All Blacks defense holds up well and within several stages you get the ball back. Nothing was done for Pumas, who tried again several times in the following minutes, kicked a free kick and decided to remove “0” from the scoreboard with Boffelli’s foot: 17-3.
New Zealand responded immediately. The free kick served on touch and other actions always go ahead, with the Argentines forced to make fouls after fouls. In the end it is customary for Taukei’aho to watch, but the goal was disallowed for a striker by Lomax by returning the ball to the fold, while Lavanini pays everyone and still takes the yellow card.
The All Blacks, with the advantage, they pick melee at 5m: the beam is still advancing, another advantage comes but we play, Haveli opens the way to break Ewan, who arrives like fury and flies between the columns: 24 -3 . In the breakout final, Argentina are at least trying to limit the damage, but the All Blacks defense is furious and the first 40 minutes ends with the Matera striker.
In the second half, despite the lack of man, the Argentines tried. Urdapilleta replaces Carreras due to injury and immediately finds a nice break at Entry 22, but the action finds no way out afterward. The first points of the second half from New Zealand, with Mo’unga running off the field for 27-3.
Cheika changes often and plays many cards available on the bench: Bello, Alemanno, Gonzalez Samso and Bertranou come in in one fell swoop. On the other hand, Mo’unga inspires another football game: the conquest this time is Argentina, but an over attack leads to another free kick. Goes in at 22, the New Zealanders seem close to another defence, but Matera saves everything one step away from the goal line.
The Argentine’s reaction comes thanks to the wonderful accusation of Thomas Gallo, who got rid of two opponents and opens the way for Bertrano, who did not succeed much. But there was an advantage, you can call up to 5 meters away with driving advances up to 1 meter from the goal line. He arrives short, but punishes Newell for taking him down by car and leaving him at 14 for 10 minutes. They insist on the squad, but the New Zealand defense is angry and still frustrates the opponent’s work.
The All Blacks start right at the age of 22, thanks to another devastating break by Rieko Ioane, who then finds a huge dump for Christie. The action continues with Havili who has another great pass serving Captain Cane, who finds a 2-for-1 space and then sends in Jordie Barrett, who scored 34-3 attempts. In the 67th minute, the goal also reached Ardi Savia, regarding the development of a throw-in.
In the 74th minute, they’re always the ones to inspire: Rieko Ioane and Caleb Clarke’s ball in hand is devastating, and in the end, it’s Brodie Retallick who robbed the complacency of scoring on his return to the field with an All Blacks jersey: 46-3. With time running out, there is also time for the seventh and final celebration of the match, which was signed by Bowden Barrett after a fine combination with Christy and Savia.
