Don’t miss the All Blacks taking on the Pumas in the Rugby Championship wherever you are

New Zealand v Argentina live stream: How to watch the Tri-Nations match

Argentina will play their first Test in more than a year when they face New Zealand in Sydney this Saturday (kick-off 6.10am UK & Ireland time) in the Tri-Nations tournament that has replaced the Rugby Championship in 2020.

The Pumas have not appeared on the international stage since being knocked out of last year’s World Cup at the end of the pool stages while they are also short of recent competitive rugby given the Covid-19 pandemic.

Adding to the size of their task is the fact they have never beaten New Zealand – and the All Blacks will be looking to bounce back from a defeat by Australia last weekend.

When the two sides met in Buenos Aires in July 2019, New Zealand’s winning margin was just four points but they will expect to triumph more comfortably at Bankwest Stadium in Sydney.

After making several changes for that final Bledisloe Cup match against the Wallabies, Ian Foster has brought the likes of Richie Mo’unga, Aaron Smith, Dane Coles and Patrick Tuipulotu back into the starting line-up.

Centre Santiago Chocobares will win his first cap for Argentina while Juan Imhoff returns to the Pumas team for the first time since 2015.

New Zealand: Beauden Barrett; Jordie Barrett, Anton Lienert-Brown, Jack Goodhue, Caleb Clarke; Richie Mo’unga, Aaron Smith; Joe Moody, Dane Coles, Tyrel Lomax, Patrick Tuipulotu, Samuel Whitelock, Shannon Frizell, Sam Cane (captain), Ardie Savea.

Replacements: Codie Taylor, Alex Hodgman, Nepo Laulala, Tupou Vaa’i, Hoskins Sotutu, Brad Weber, Rieko Ioane, Damian McKenzie.

Argentina: Santiago Carreras; Bautista Delguy, Matias Orlando, Santiago Chocobares, Juan Imhoff; Nicolas Sánchez, Tomas Cubelli; Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Julian Montoya, Francisco Gómez-Kodela, Guido Petti, Matias Alemanno, Pablo Matera (captain), Marcos Kremer, Rodrigo Bruni.

Replacements: Facundo Bosch, Mayco Vivas, Santiago Medrano, Santiago Grondona, Tomas Lezana, Gonzalo Bertranou, Lucio Cinti, Santiago Cordero.
