Good morning and welcome to our live coverage of the Rugby Championship clash between Argentina and New Zealand at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.
1'
Argentina under pressure already as they struggle to clear their lines. Carreras had a kick charged down before failing to find touch with his second attempt. The All Blacks attacking the Pumas 22.
2'
A timely turnover by Argentina and New Zealand go offside trying to recover the ball. Pumas can clear their lines and finally take a deep breath and settle into the game.
6'
TRY! New Zealand! Patrick Tuipulotu! 5-0. From nowhere! New Zealand were taking the ball through the phases around the halfway line when Quinn Tupaea suddenly burst through the line. He popped the ball inside to Will Jordan who took it up to the line. Tuipulotu was able to barge his way over from the resulting ruck.
7'
CONVERSION! New Zealand! Jordie Barrett! 7-0.
8'
New Zealand concede an immediate penalty from the kickoff for illegal blocking and give the Pumas a chance to claw some points back
9'
PENALTY! Argentina! Emiliano Boffelli! 7-3.
10'
Some savage defending from the Pumas is keeping the game outside their 22. Big hits flying into the All Blacks runners. It'll be interesting to see how long they can keep it up.
13'
PENALTY! New Zealand! Jordie Barrett! 10-3.
15'
Good old fashioned kicking duel between the two sides at the moment, the ball being sent all over the pitch with both teams trying to gain a territorial advantage.
16'
All Blacks looking dangerous again with a strong rolling mall setting up solid field position just inside the Argentina half
17'
No try! It looked sublime by New Zealand, who sent it wide and busted through for what seemed to be their second try, but one of the final passes was adjudged to have been forward.
20'
More untidy play undoing some magnificent work by New Zealand. Quick, clean ball from the ruck saw Barrett break through the line but his final pass hit the dirt and was knocked on. Another huge let off for Argentina.
21'
No try! A deft chip over the defence by McKenzie opened Argentina up. It was recovered by Tupaea, who offloaded for Will Jordan to go over. However, that last pass was once again forward.
23'
Unrelenting pressure from the All Blacks. They win a scrum penalty and kick for touch rather than taking an easy three points.
24'
Herculean defence from Argentina, who hold up the maul to win a scrum and a chance to clear their line.
25'
But New Zealand's scrum is totally dominant and they win a penalty. They ask for another scrum
26'
TRY! New Zealand! TJ Perenara! 15-3. It was just a matter of time. Perenara peeled away from the back of the scrum and looked outside before deciding to dart for the line himself.
28'
CONVERSION! Jordie Barrett! 17-3.
29'
Argentina have just given the ball straight back to New Zealand with Carreras sending his kickoff straight into touch
30'
No try! Reiko Ioane with a magnificent run, busting through and going all the way to the line on his own. However, he got up and went for the line after being tackled rather than passing or leaving it for a teammate and conceding a penalty as a result.
32'
Absolutely bizarre as Samisoni Taukei'aho also gets pinged for trying to continue after being tackled. This one is in kicking distance and gives Argentina a chance to claw a few points back. However, they have decided to go for the corner instead and Carreras puts in a wonderful kick in up to the All Black 5m line.
33'
Nothing comes of it for the Pumas as their maul is driven back an obliterated by New Zealand's pack, who won a scrum and the ball.
36'
The Pumas maul is not having the best of times at the moment. Another chance goes begging as their attempt at the line broke apart and caused obstruction.
40'
And that's half time. New Zealand looking dominant but it could have been so much worse for Argentina with the All Blacks having no less than three tries disallowed. However, the Pumas will also be disappointed not to have scored a few more points after a couple of decent chances of their own. They certainly have their work cut out for them in the second period
40'
CONVERSION! New Zealand! Jordie Barrett 24-3.
40'
TRY! New Zealand! Tupou Vaa'i! 22-3. We've said it already but relentless pressure by New Zealand eventually unlocks the defence. Patient work going through the phases on the Pumas line eventually made enough space out wide to see Vaa'i over the line in the corner.
40'
New Zealand piling on the pressure at the tail end of the first half
41'
Santiago Carreras gets the second half underway for Argentina shallow kick to the middle of the field. It's regained by Bertranou! What a move
42'
The Pumas certainly aren't going to leave anything out on the field. They are throwing everything at the New Zealand line right now
43'
PENALTY! Argentina! Emiliano Boffelli! 24-6.
45'
New Zealand straight back at it. Going through the phases and driving the Pumas back deep into their own territory.
46'
TRY! New Zealand! Samisoni Taukei'aho! 29-6. That didn't take very long. Quick hands got the ball out wide before the Pumas could stretch across and Taukei'aho went over in the corner without a challenge.
49'
Pumas finally back on the front foot after a beautiful counter by Santiago Carreras.
52'
TRY! Argentina! Emiliano Boffelli! 29-11. Superb try from the Pumas. They couldn't find a way through the All Blacks defence so Carreras put a lovely kick over to Boffelli in the corner, who twisted and turned himself to get over the line without going into touch
53'
CONVERSION! Argentina! Emiliano Boffelli! 29-13.
54'
Argentina immediately under pressure once again as Carreras turns villain this time, having his clearance kick charged down. Finlay Christie couldn't gather it cleanly though and knocked it on to give the Pumas a scrum
58'
Superb defence by Argentina. Just as it looked as if there were some seems starting to appear, a big hit forced the knock on by Ardie Savea and a much-needed turnover.
62'
New Zealand aren't giving up on the idea of scoring more points but the defending by the Pumas has been nothing short of outstanding in the last 10 minutes.
63'
Argentina are finally out of their own half, winning a penalty on halfway and pinging it to the corner to set up another maul attempt. Unfortunately they lost the lineout.
65'
Oh what could have been. Some beautiful play by Argentina saw them work their way all the way up into the All Blacks 22. However, Matias Moroni through a no-look pass into no-man's land, effectively ending the drive. Fortunately they have penalty advantage, so another maul it is.
67'
The Pumas just can't break through. New Zealand showing they can also defend with the best of them, although Argentina aren't being particularly imaginative with their attempts at smashing a way through.
68'
New Zealand need to be careful here. They are giving away far too many penalties protecting their line.
71'
Another failed maul and the All Blacks win the scrum. Possibly the Pumas last chance to make a game of this has just gone begging.
73'
New Zealand's scrum has been absolutely dominant tonight. The Springbok pack will no doubt have taken note after failing to push Argentina around themselves.
75'
Despite New Zealand still having possession, the game is camped deep in their own half at the moment. The Pumas aren't threatening much but the All Blacks can't get out of their own half either.
78'
TRY! New Zealand! Tupou Vaa'i! 34-13. The All Blacks managed to get a few phases together at last and waltzed their way down the pitch before Will Jordan was able to put Vaa'i into space and over the line. A brutal blow for Argentina but, based on the balance of the game, no less than the All Blacks deserved
79'
CONVERSION! New Zealand! Jordie Barrett! 36-13.
80'
And that's full time. Argentina definitely left some points out on the park due to a messy maul and some careless handling, but three disallowed tries for the All Blacks shows how much worse the score could have been. A dominant 36-13 win for New Zealand not accurately represented on the scoreboard.
