After experimenting with several new combinations last week – changes that the All Blacks coaches admit may have contributed to their loss against the Wallabies – Ian Foster has gone with plan A against the Pumas.
It provides an insight into the All Blacks selectors’ first choice side, with Foster opting for basically his best side possible against the Argentineans, who will play their first test since last year’s Rugby World Cup.
“A number of players have had a week off and are fresh,” said Foster. “The whole team is pretty determined to put a performance in that shows we’ve grown over the last few weeks, so going to those existing combinations is quite important.”
