    NZ v Argentina

    NZ have made a few changes for Saturday nights test v Argentina at Waikato Stadium.

    I guess Henry, Hansen & Smith want to see what other players can do.

    All Blacks: (15-1) Nick Evans, Mils Muliaina, Tana Umaga (captain), Sam Tuitupou, Joe Rokocoko, Andrew Mehrtens, Byron Kelleher, Mose Tuiali'i, Richie McCaw, Jerry Collins, Simon Maling, Chris Jack, Greg Somerville, Andrew Hore, Tony Woodcock. Reserves: Daniel Carter, Carlos Spencer, Justin Marshall, Marty Holah, Jono Gibbes, Kees Meeuws, Keven Mealamu.

    I think if NZ hold their passes & don't rush things..it'll be at least a 35 point margin.

    I'm glad to see Simon Maling and Andrew Mehrtens (starting) back.

    What has happened to Kieth Robinson

    I believe Robinson has a slight injury concern..so because it's Argentina, they've probably decided to rest him. Xavier Rush I think also had a slight injury problem.

    Australia will never be easy..they seem to save their best for us. I can honestly say i've never been confident going into a test against Aus because it could go either way.

    South Africa on the other hand...well usually if they're playing poorly, they will continue to play poorly in the Tri-Nations.

    well put Tim mate.. thats seems like how it is. Australia always notch up a game against us and really depends on who is injured and whos not..

    Actually South Africa have a very good record against the AB's.

    There is a rivilary between the two teams and there is no such thing as a soft match between the two countries.

    They will be fired up to beat us, I will bet my new bike on that.

    South Africa beating NZ in the Tri Nations will be no easy feat.
