The All Blacks 54 – 15 win over the Pumas has made them the winners of the inaugural Rugby Championship.
Win or lose in next week’s match against South Africa, the All Blacks are the Championship champions.
The expansion of the Tri-Nations to include Argentina has been good for rugby.
The Pumas were always going to be the under-dogs but they drew against South Africa at home and had a win against the Wallabies in Australia.
They also scored first in both matches against the All Blacks.
Hopes of beating New Zealand for the first time today weren’t realised but while they lost the match they were not disgraced.
