New Zealand remains undefeated in the Rugby Championship after defeating a spirited Argentina 21-5 in Wellington. Now it's time for Planet Rugby to rate the players.
15 Israel Dagg: Safe under the high ball when it flew in his direction, but found wanting sometimes at the back when it didn't thanks to some brilliant tactical kicking from Juan Martin Hernandez. Quite a handful on attack though. 6.5/10
14 Cory Jane: Hardly featured in the first half as there was more action on Savea's flank, but came out of his shell after the break as he went looking for work before the ball came looking for him after taking a long floating pass from Aaron Cruden to touch down in the corner. 7/10
13 Conrad Smith: His contribution was obvious as he attacked hard, and was more evident as the game progressed, showing his consistency throughout as Smith set up Savea's try after drawing in three Pumas' players before offloading to Nonu. 8/10
12 Ma'a Nonu: Coughed up possession that led to Argentina's opening try, and put a pass down when NZ were hot on attack in the first half. Recovered in the second half though, showing his usual power with ball in hand. Unselfishly put in Savea when he could have gone over himself. 6.5/10
11 Julian Savea: A menace on attack out wide, Wellington's golden boy also bagged fourth try in the black jersey to give his team some breathing space. 7/10
10 Aaron Cruden: Missed a few shots at goal and spilled the pill on a few occasions. Lacked Super Rugby flair that put him head and shoulders above the rest. Not his best game by a long shot. 5/10
9 Aaron Smith: Fairly anonymous and got ruffed up a few times by the Pumas pack. Subbed half-way through the second half. 5/10
8 Kieran Read: Reasonably solid throughout, showing power with some punishing runs. But was also guilty of butter hands. 7/10
7 Richie McCaw (c): Proved he was human with a few dropped passes in the first half, but came back strongly after the break to lead from the front. 7/10
6 Victor Vito: Blew a golden opportunity to score on the stroke of half-time, but got hauled into touch. Other than that, didn't really put a foot wrong, but taken off at the start of the second half. 6/10
5 Brodie Retallick: Put in a few solid runs but played in the shadow of his second-row partner. Made way for Whitelock in 65th minute. 5/10
4 Luke Romano: Pic of the All Blacks forwards and completely justified his coach's selection by putting in - what we felt - was a man-of-the-match performance. 8/10
3 Owen Franks: Was on the receiving end of some big tackles, and went backwards a wee bit in the scrum. 6.5/10
2 Keven Mealamu: Found his jumpers in tricky conditions, but could not keep Rodrigo Roncero out when defending the tryline. Made way for Hore in the 50th minute. 5.5/10
1 Tony Woodcock: One of his least memorable games in the black jersey. Huffed and puffed but couldn't blow the Pumas' scrum down. 4/10
16 Andrew Hore: Conceded a penalty on a defensive line-out, but added some physicality to the breakdown when he came on. 5/10
17 Charlie Faumuina: Got a run in the final eight minutes for his first All Blacks cap.
18 Sam Whitelock: Whitelock got 15 minutes off the bench after Retallick was preferred to start. Conceded a penalty.
19 Liam Messam: Came on three minutes into the second half for Vito and made a telling impact. Played himself into next weekend's starting line-up. 7/10
20 Piri Weepu: Allwed the All Blacks to control the game a bit more when he come on - certainly proved his doubters wrong. 7/10
21 Beauden Barrett: Five minutes - not enough time to warrant a rating.
22 Ben Smith: Also got five minutes off the bench...
