Argentina will front up and play much better. Don’t know if they can win, but it won’t be a bonus point win for the ABs.

I can only see this going one way. After the indifferent performances last year Foster has finally got the ABs playing to a consistently good standard. They will beat Argentina and it won’t be close. ABs to win 37 - 10.

Will be interesting to see the team. I imagine given the non stop schedule of games that this will be seen as the ideal time to rest players, ahead of the boks.

might be something like
Moody
Taylor
Taavao
Scott
vaai
Jacobson
Savea
Sotutu
Weber
Beauden
Reece
Havili
Lienert brown
Jordan
Jordie
Karl
Aumua
Lomax
Retallick
Blackadder
Tj
Mckenzie
Ione

Foster has made way too many changes for this match... going to be hard for us cohesion wise & we need to win this one to keep the squeeze on the Boks.

Mckenzie has played plenty of games at both 15 & 10, so he'll go well at 1st-five... just a bit of a worry with a lot of combination changes.

Interesting team .I like Will Jordan he is good to watch and we will see if Argentina target the scrum and lineout in this game .

Yeah, Will Jordan is a brilliant winger - thought our lineout was a bit messy in our last match.... with all these changes we've got to really concentrate on executing our set pieces well, in the lineouts our hooker has to throw accurately, lifters need to get their timing right, with the jumper attacking the ball aggressively in the air.

It will be a tough game. The 10-12-13 axis has not a lot Of experience at This level in those positions.

good to see ofa back.

NZ looking to give the up and comers a cap and develop depth. I am sure those players will pick it up and take in in their stride as the All Blacks always seem to do.

After seeing the All Blacks team I’m a little more nervous about my prediction of an easy win. That team has talent in abundance but I’m never keen on seeing loads of new combinations at once. It’s hard to get into a rhythm. I hope Foster hasn’t made a massive mistake here. Don’t get me wrong that team should still easily account for Argentina but sometimes a lack of familiarity in combinations can cost you a test match.

You’ll win or lose by 5. Book it.
