All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has made five alterations to his starting line-up that beat Australia for their clash with Argentina in Wellington.
There are returns to the New Zealand jersey for Julian Savea, Conrad Smith, Victor Vito, Brodie Retallick and Tony Woodcock this weekend.
Savea replaces Hosea Gear on the left wing while Smith is in for Sonny Bill Williams, Vito for Liam Messam on the flank, Retallick for Sam Whitelock and finally Woodcock comes in for Wyatt Crockett.
"We were happy with our intensity and attitude in the last Test against Australia, but not so happy with our execution when we didn't get the decision-making process right on occasions, so we are looking for improvement in that area this weekend," Hansen told ONE Sport before looking ahead to Saturday's showdown with the Pumas.
"It is going to be very physical, especially up front where they are traditionally very strong," he added.
"We also have immense respect for their backline abilities plus they have one of the best defensive structures in modern rugby.
"They are always looking to work as a unit to shut you down."
