Pumas eye best chance of first win over All Blacks

While Argentina has never beaten New Zealand at rugby in 32 matches, momentum on one side and personnel changes on the other side could give the Latin American nation its best chance yet to reverse that trend when they meet up this evening in Buenos Aires.

The bulk of the Argentina team play for the Jaguares, who this month reached the Super Rugby Championship final for the first time, beating three New Zealand sides on the way.

There is a sense among Argentine rugby fans that it could finally be their year and the addition of five European-based players to their squad has given the Pumas an extra boost. They won’t admit it but the Argentines may also be lifted by the relative inexperience of the visitors. The world champions are resting eight of the Crusaders players who faced the Jaguares in the Super Rugby final.
