Argentina claim historic first away win over All-Blacks

Argentina defeated the All Blacks for the first time on New Zealand soil this morning, winning 25-18 in a Rugby Championship match in Christchurch."

The Pumas won their debut Rugby Championship encounter against New Zealand two years ago in Sydney.

"We're really delighted, quite proud, and this is a very unique time for us."

When New Zealand scored two tries in the first half, the boot of winger Emiliano Boffelli, who kicked five penalties, kept them in the game and kept them ahead when flanker Juan Martin Gonzalez scored a fortuitous second-half touchdown.

They also maintain their lead in the championship standings on points difference over Australia, which defeated South Africa 25-17 earlier in Adelaide.
