    would love Argentina to win this but the AB's should be too strong. reckon it may be closer than the last few games in Arg for NZ. NZ to win by 14 points.

    if I say it again maybe... Los pumas by 2.
    man it will happen.!!
    seriously this is the closest we ever been to make it happen, in terms of a competitive team, but we need the AB to be a bit low. the bock took that chance last week. I'll be to much to ask for another sloppy display by them. it's more like they will come in "no prisoners mode" so we are going to need the perfect combination.

    I dunno, I think the sides were closer matched when Ledesma was a player. ABs by 10 (which would be a great effort by the Pumas)

    What happened to Nepo Laulala?

    I know he hasn't been in the setup for a little while but I was reminded of his existence yesterday. I was always pretty impressed by him; surely he's better than Tu'ungfasi?

    glad bender is back at 15 where he belongs
    SBW has a lot of ground to make up but at least ALB is cover
    frizell will be interesting. hope he continues his awesome form. the Puma's definitely know who he is
    lukeWhitelock doesnt have the running/offloading game of read but luke is never going to miss a tackle so it makes up for that shortcoming.
    still dont know how tuugafasi keeps making the squad let alone starting
    hope tuipolotu gets some redemption
    angusTaavao, best come back since Lazarus?

    awesome bench

    Still recovering from the broken arm he suffered back in March. there were complications post surgery, as it didn’t heal properly.

    Isn't de la Fuente a bit lightweight physically to play 13 at this level?

    Boffelli managing to cover 15 has been possibly the biggest single key to the Pumas being competitive. I feared for them when Tuculet off injured.

    No space for DMac or Jordie in a match day 23. Incredible depth.

    DMac was unavailable due to a death in the family.

    weather forecast is rainy. big storm endeed. good for us. it give us an extra if the abs can't move the ball around so easily.
    if we can match their forward pack we have a chance.
    vamos los pumas!!!

    SBW is back so no more defensive lapses in the midfield like we have had against the Boks. He might be a little rusty but once he gets going we will be a better team all round with him there.

    Pumas on the rise so it should be a goodie.

    So, I'm going to the stadium today, and anything less than a completely full overly crowded place would be a disappoitment
