Argentina 0 New Zealand 38 New Zealand avenged their historic loss to Argentina earlier this month in emphatic style, finishing a difficult 2020 with a thumping win over the Pumas. On a sultry evening in Newcastle with the temperature touching 30 degrees Celsius, the All Blacks dominated possession, territory and the scrummaging exchanges. At no stage did they look in danger of suffering a third consecutive loss. Tries from Dane Coles, Ardie Savea and replacements Will Jordan, who added two opportunistic finishes on the back of late turnovers, and Patrick Tuipulotu punctuated New Zealand’s convincing display. A bonus-point victory puts them top of the Tri-Nations table and highly likely to secure the title with a single game, between Australia and Argentina, to complete the tournament next weekend. After skipper Sam Cane presented Argentina with a New Zealand shirt emblazoned with a No 10 and the surname of Diego Maradona on its back before kick-off, his side were superior throughout.
