Check out the Rugby Championship highlights as Argentina produced a superb display to overcome the All Blacks 25-18 in Christchurch on Saturday.

It is the first time they have defeated the three-time world champions in New Zealand as they remain top of the competition table.

Defensive effort

The defensive effort laid the platform as they consistently sent the All Blacks into reverse throughout the 80 minutes at Orangetheory Stadium.

Although Ian Foster’s men moved into a 15-6 lead thanks to Samisoni Taukei’aho and Caleb Clarke tries, Los Pumas continued to battle.

Emiliano Boffelli had kicked an earlier brace of penalties before adding two more late in the first half to give them hope going into the second period.

Richie Mo’unga extended that gap to six points but it proved to be brief as straight from the restart Juan Martin Gonzalez touched down to take the visitors ahead.

It was an advantage they would not relinquish as Boffelli kicked a couple more off the tee to seal a memorable Rugby Championship triumph for the Argentinians.
