New ZealandArgentinaIn anticipation for this weekend’s clash between the All Blacks and the Pumas, here is a head to head breakdown of how the two teams compare.

These teams have met each other 16 times in the past, with the All Blacks not having lost once against the Pumas, there is however 1 draw between these teams but this was way back in 1985 with a final score of 21-21, which ironically is also the highest ever score posted by a Puma side against the All Blacks.

The All Blacks score a average of 43 points per match vs the 13 of the Pumas. So an average result of 43-13 in favour of the All Blacks sounds like a very accurate prediction. The All Blacks will be firm favourites to take this one and there is no evidence to suggest otherwise.

    Will really be interesting to see how these 2 sides play on Saturday morning!

    It will put the Springbok performances over their 2 games into perspective… but remember, it is a home game for the All Blacks, so can and will they beat the Pumas by 60 points too?

    I reckon by 40-45 points
