Another Rugby Championship in the books, the All Blacks have set their sights on the all-time Tier 1 Test winning streak of 18 matches -- assignment No. Art Monk Jersey .16 set down for Buenos Aires. With Argentina opting to take their encounter against the Wallabies to London next week, this Test against the All Blacks is the Pumas last on home soil for 2016.The Portenos will hopefully get themselves to Estadio Jose Amalfitani in their droves, given what the Pumas produced against the world champions in Hamilton a few weeks ago. For 50 minutes, Argentina put the All Blacks under all sorts of pressure; but the Pumas lacked the finishing expertise to really hurt New Zealand where it matters -- the scoreboard. They were then largely disappointing against a struggling Wallabies outfit a week later, failing to recover after shipping three early tries.Conversely, the All Blacks were back to their best against the Springboks after more than just a few uncomfortable moments in Hamilton a week prior. The six-tries-to-one hammering was the sixth occasion on which New Zealand have scored at least 35 points this season - and its unlikely to be the last.Team newsArgentina?The Pumas have made an interesting call at captain, with Martin Landajo returning to take over from Agustin Creevy after the half-back was recalled ahead of Tomas Cubelli. There are two further changes, one each to the forwards and backs, with Guido Petti returning at lock and Ramiro Moyano earning a start on the left wing.?Joaquin Tuculet, Santiago Cordero, Matias Moroni, Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias, Ramiro Moyano, Nicolas Sanchez, Martin Landajo (captain), Facundo Isa, Javier Ortego Desio, Pablo Matera, Matias Alemanno, Guido Petti, Ramiro Herrera, Agustin Creevy, Nahuel Telaz Chaparro. Replacements: Julian Montoya, Lucas Noguera, Enrique Pieretto, Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Leonardo Senatore, Tomas Cubelli, Jeronimo De la Fuente, Matias Orlando.New ZealandAll Blacks coach Steve Hansen has opted for a few fresh faces in Argentina, with only one forced by injury. That comes at No.6 where Liam Squire gets a chance for Jerome Kaino, the Blues skipper sitting out with a shoulder injury in a bid to be fit for next weeks trip to Durban. The other change up front comes at lock where Patrick Tuipoluto slots in for Sam Whitelock. In the backs, Aaron Smith has been given the week off with TJ Perenara starting at No.9 while Anton Lienert-Brown will wear the No.13 jersey in place of Malakai Fekitoa. There are a further five changes to the bench, the biggest of which could see Damian McKenzie win his first Test cap.Ben Smith, Israel Dagg, Anton Lienert-Brown, Ryan Crotty, Julian Savea, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara; Kieran Read, Ardie Savea, Liam Squire, Brodie Retallick, Patrick Tuipulotu, Owen Franks, Dane Coles, Joe Moody. Replacements: Codie Taylor, Wyatt Crockett, Ofa Tuungafasi, Sam Whitelock, Elliot Dixon, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Lima Sopoaga, Damian McKenzieKey matchup: Pablo Matera vs. Liam SquireMatera was one of the Pumas better performers in Perth a fortnight ago, the back-rower making an equal match-high 15 runs in a busy performance at nib Stadium. He was similarly impressive a week prior in Hamilton, adding plenty of punch to a loose-forward trio that also features rising star Facundo Isa. Back on home soil, Matera must replicate those twin efforts if the Pumas are to be any chance of a first ever win over the All Blacks.Squire, meanwhile, is enjoying quite the season. Having moved from the Chiefs to the Highlanders at the start of the year, Squire proved himself to be one of the buys of the Super Rugby season as the southerners came within one game of the final. A ball-running No.6 in a similar mould to Jerome Kaino, the man he replaces, Squire will be making his first start after two appearances off the bench.Key stats (Opta Stats)- New Zealand have won their last 21 games against the Pumas, their only blemish in 27 previous encounters being a 21-21 draw in November 1985.- New Zealand have scored a joint record 24 tries in this tournament (also 24 in 2013), one more and they will hold the standalone record for most tries in a Rugby Championship/Tri Nations campaign.- Just two players have made over 250 metres with ball in hand in The Rugby Championship this year: Ben Smith (257) and Facundo Isa (251).WeatherIts nothing but sunshine for Buenos Aires on Saturday with the mercury set to reach a top of 19 degrees. The hard, fast track should make for some exciting running rugby.UBET verdict: Argentina $8.50, New Zealand $1.07.New Zealand will be popular through multis this weekend, but their prohibitive $1.07 price will rule out most rank and file rugby punters. A line bet will be the trick and, judging by the early betting indicators, the world champions will be heavily tried to cover the 18.5 handicap.VerdictAll Blacks coach Steve Hansen has done well to build the world champions players base, and he gets the chance to see just where some of those future stars are at this weekend. Crucially, Hansen has maintained the key cogs of this years scintillating form in Dane Coles, Brodie Retallick, skipper Kieran Read, and backs Beauden Barrett and Ben Smith, which should see the new faces slot in seamlessly. The Pumas will be better at home but their failure to turn long periods of possession and territory into points has become more than just a passing concern.All Blacks by 17. Brian Quick Jersey . The Brazilian goalkeeper signed a loan deal with the Major League Soccer club on Friday as he looks to get playing time ahead of this summers World Cup in his home country. Charles Mann Jersey . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. http://www.authenticredskinsfootballonline.com/authentic-kirk-cousins-redskins-jersey/ . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Indiana Preview CapsuleBy The Associated Press=IndianaLast season: 27-8, won Big Ten regular season title, lost to North Carolina in NCAA Tournament regional semifinals.Nickname: Hoosiers.Coach: Tom Crean.Conference: Big Ten.Whos gone: G Kevin Yogi Ferrell, F Troy Williams, F Max Bielfeldt, G Nick Zeisloft.Whos back: C Thomas Bryant and F OG Anunoby were so impressive as freshmen some thought they should head straight to the NBA. G James Blackmon Jr. also tested the NBA waters despite missing the second half of last season after having knee surgery. G Robert Johnson may be the most crucial player on this seasons team because of his leadership skills, but he had offseason ankle surgery.Whos new: Former Pittsburgh G Josh Newkirk is expected to play a significant role after sitting out last season because of the NCAA trannsfer rules. Phil Taylor Jersey. F Freddie McSwain Jr., a junior college transfer, could provide another athletic interior presence after averaging a double-double last season. The two freshmen most likely to help immediately will be G Curtis Jones and 6-10 forward DeRon Davis.The Skinny: Indiana has plenty of athletes, lots of scoring punch and even the knowledge of what it takes to win a conference title. But Crean still must find a replacement for Ferrell and wont have a senior to lean on until F Collin Hartman returns after injuring his knee last month. Regardless, the Hoosiers should be a serious contender for the conference crown.---Online:AP College Basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
