After a 35-23 victory over South Africa last time out, All Blacks head coach Ian Foster has made minimal changes to his 23-man side for this clash against Argentina. The starting XV is the same, with Stephen Perofeta set to take his place on the bench for the first time. New Zealand lost both their last games on home turf – against Ireland back in July – and have never lost three on the bounce. Could the Pumas change that today?

Michael Cheika has made three changes to his Argentina side, although not through choice. Francisco Gomez Kodela, Juan Imhoff and Jeronimo de la Fuente are all injured, so Lucio Cinti, Matias Moroni and Joel Sclavi get the nod instead. All five forwards on the bench have also been changed, with Augustin Creevy and Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro returning to their clubs in Europe.

Watch a New Zealand vs Argentina live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant 2022 Rugby Championship rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
