The All Blacks crossed the whitewash eight times on route to trimming Argentina in the Rugby Championship this weekend.

And despite an impressive Argentina performance over the first 50 minutes which produced a try, Argentina found the necessary stuff in reserve to overcome the resistance. 

The World Champions launched their attack shortly after half-time with three tries in 10 minutes, one of which was scored by Ryan Crotty on 53 minutes. His effort was followed by Charlie Faumuina, Ben Smith and Luke Romano to give New Zealand the win by a clear distance.

But it was Ben Smith's first half try that was the real mouth-watering moment via a slip pass from Aaron Smith in the 23rd minute.
