On a rainy evening in Hamilton, the Pumas have washed away ruthlessly. Summoning the same emotional intensity to back up their historic exploits in Christchurch was always going to be a monumental task and so it proved.

The All Blacks delivered a robust response, characterized by the punchy attack, flinty defence, and clever and varied kicking. They were much improved and Argentina could not cope, conceding a half-century of points that was decorated by seven tries.

Sam Cane, the New Zealand captain, was exceptional, with Rieko Ioane electric at outside centre. Richie Mo’unga conducted things beautifully from fly-half, while

Caleb Clarke was a menace on the wing. Ardie Savea’s phenomenal form continued as well.

A fascinating Bledisloe Cup series against the Wallabies comes next when we will see whether the All Blacks’ wobbly patch is truly over as the World Cup beckons.

“It was obviously massively important,” Cane admitted afterward. “

We were under a fair bit of pressure and weren’t happy with what we dished up last week.

We started well, turned that into points and it was a pretty enjoyable night.

“I thought our defense was outstanding. We forced them into difficult areas and on top of that our discipline was good as well, so we

capitalized on that with our counter-attack. I’m also pleased with how we kicked on for the full 80 [minutes]. It was a pretty complete performance tonight.”

Julian Montoya, Cane’s opposite number, was less effusive about Argentina’s efforts. “This was a proper Test match and they played really, really well,” he said. “

We’ve got to keep on working. Last week, we weren’t the best in the world. Today, we are not the worst in the world. We’ve got to look inside,

keep improving and trust the process because in a couple of weeks, we have South Africa.

“They [the All Blacks] brought more intensity than us.

We have to start being comfortable with things that are uncomfortable. We are working on that.”

Tricky conditions influenced the game markedly and immediately. Tomas Lavanini, brilliant in Christchurch, spilled an elementary pass inside his own 22 before 20 seconds had ticked past.

Argentina rallied and resisted, but conceded a penalty that Mo’unga converted to settle his side. Ioane, also a defensive menace, then forced a fumble out of

Marcos Kremer to continue New Zealand’s assured start but their first attempt to go wide, via a line-out move, failed as an offload from Jordie Barrett was dropped by Will Jordan.

Errors continued until the All Blacks breached their opponents. Santiago Carreras drove a clearance that skipped over the dead-ball line to surrender a scrum and

David Havili’s chip was recovered by Jordan and Ioane. New Zealand gathered momentum nicely and Aaron Smith’s pass zipped across Jordie

Barrett’s decoy angle to a charging Ethan de Groot. The powerful loosehead prop stretched over and Mo’unga added the extras.

Although Pablo Matera pounced for a breakdown turnover, a second try would arrive before the end of the opening quarter.

This time it was an intelligent kick from Mo’unga, who slid a grubber through centre-field to release Jordan, that cracked the Pumas. From there,

Jordie Barrett followed up and a series of composed passes, with Sam Whitelock and Cane prominent, swept the ball to Clarke. Mo’unga split the posts from the touchline.

The 17-0 cushion told a story of Argentina’s subdued start until Matera stirred them, surging through tackles to set up a foray from Santiago Cordero.

The Pumas turned down a shot at goal to hit touch from a penalty, but a strong position was foiled with a fumble in the backline. Matias Moroni, now a

Newcastle Falcon after helping Leicester Tigers to last season’s Premiership title, escaped for a couple of slippery breaks and the metronomic

Boffelli registered three points for the visitors just beyond the half-hour mark. New Zealand vs Australia

But Matera was then collared from the restart and Scott Barrett and Cane drove in to muscle a penalty. New Zealand’s relentless pressure led to a

Lavanini yellow card and, after a disallowed try, Ioane darted through off the shoulder of Havili directly from another brawny scrum. At 24-3 ahead, New Zealand were certain of victory by half-time.

Benjamin Urdapilleta replaced Carreras for the second period and the Castres fly-half scampered into a gap within moments. New Zealand vs Australia Live Stream

Argentina, however, could not capitalise and Mo’unga landed his second penalty when Lavaini flopped over a ruck.

Matera continued to fight, pouncing over the ball to earn a turnover just a metre from his own try-line. Kremer earned another breakdown penalty and Thomas

Gallo’s run caused New Zealand to scramble. They did so, halting a series of mauls and eventually escaping their half through Ioane.

Fittingly, complementing evening of tough and understated contributions, Cane sliced clear in midfield and linked up with Jordie Barrett for the fourth try.

The skipper promptly left the pitch, wearing a satisfied grin. Almost a quarter remained, though, and deputy captain Savea piled on more

Argentina pain. Rubber-stamping yet another fine individual display, the back-rower gathered Dane Coles’ offload to dive over from the tail of a maul.

There would be another symbol of New Zealand’s resurgence in the towering shape of Brodie Retallick. Returning from the bench,

having been out for a number of weeks following a facial fracture sustained against Ireland, the lock stooped to finish from close range.

Continuing an eye-catching and significant cameo, Retallick then stripped the ball from Matera. The All Blacks certainly seem a more daunting outfit when he is in tow.

Speaking of handy appearances from the bench, it was Beauden Barrett that applied the full-stop, spearing over from the second layer of a scrum strike-move. “

There’s always massive pressure,” added Cane, before an ominous message that Australia will have heeded. “We put that pressure on ourselves, too.

We’ve made a lot of shifts in our game and today was a reward to put those out there for everyone to see.
