Argentina's defeat to Australia means that New Zealand are the Rugby Championship winners for the fourth time in the last five years.

Los Pumas needed to win in Perth with a bonus point to prevent the All Blacks from clinching the title two rounds early.

The All Blacks will round out the competition by facing Argentina in Buenos Aires before their final match in Durban against South Africa.

Australia's win moves them into second place ahead of their next two fixtures in Pretoria and against Argentina at Twickenham Stadium in London.
