All Blacks beat Argentina 36-10 in scrappy Rugby Championship clash

Having served his apprenticeship on the training paddock David Havili will make his All Blacks debut against Argentina

The All Blacks' first-five's bit of genius allowed a brilliant try against Los Pumas.

Captain Kieran Read scored two tries and earned a yellow card as New Zealand flaunted its depth in a 36-10 Rugby Championship win over Argentina.

The All Blacks were already assured of the 2017 title thanks to Saturday's draw between South Africa and Australia.

The All Blacks made nine changes to their squad to face Argentina on Thursday with one eye on the next World Cup as they looked to clinch the Rugby Championship with a game to spare. Playmaker Beauden Barrett, who conjured up some first-half magic, kicked four conversions and a penalty to top the competition scoring charts this season with 67 points.

For Argentina, back-rower Juan Manuel Leguizamon marked his 80th Test match with a second-half try but the hosts were well beaten.

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.

"I am proud of the boys who defended brilliantly at times", Read said.

In the backline Anton Lienert-Brown and Waisake Naholo come in for Crotty and Milner-Skudder respectively, while David Havili's debut will come via the bench with Damian McKenzie again named at fullback.

South Africa coach Allister Coetzee said his side have been given little chance of exacting revenge on New Zealand in their Rugby Championship finale and added that anyone expecting a rousing home win is "living in a fool's paradise".

"The whole evening's been good for us".
