The early team news is in and, despite calls for captain Sam Kane to be rested, New Zealand have named an unchanged XV for the showdown with Argentina at the FMG Stadium. Beauden Barrett and Brodie Retallick will return from injury to the All Blacks bench.
With the All Blacks' aura of invincibility fading fast, and despairing fans dubbing the side "Foster's Imposters", the Pumas will be chomping at the bit to match Ireland by beating New Zealand in back-to-back tests.
Argentina coach Cheika warned reporters that the Pumas still are "about as underdog as they get," but added "the guys need to believe we can do it, and we need to go into the game with that attitude."

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.
