Halftime hooter sounds and the ball is in touch.
HALFTIME: ALL BLACKS 15 ARGENTINA 10
"We're not holding onto the ball. We need to play within ourselves, if it's not on to give it in these conditions then hold it, simple really" - Israel Dagg gives a simple halftime interview.
Players making their way back out onto the field now. Carter with the kick-off and we're away.
The Pumas have fumbled the kick-off. Great chance for the ABs to start the second stanza with a blast now. Scrum 30m out.
Rain really driving down now. Becoming very slippy.
Conrad Smith goes close, then Aaron Smith. 5m out now. Surely they will score.
No they will not. Stubborn tryline defence from the Pumas. They earn a penalty and clear the danger. Very intense start to the second half.
End to end stuff now. Both sides have turns running the ball and both quickly turn it over. Pumas trying to slow things down now and restore some order.
But they lose it to Saili.... and he loses it. Everyone is losing it. Now I'm losing it.
Hernandez is down injured and everyone pauses for a breath. Butter fingers and slip n slides have been the order of the second half. And it's showing no signs of clearing up. This is how the last 30 minutes will play out.
Hore is replaced by Dane Coles for the All Blacks.
Pumas scrum inside their own half. Let's see if we can see a few nice catches.
ABs turn it over. Great scrum from the All Blacks. Smith quickly in to spread it to Carter. But the ball is spilled and we come back for the penalty.
Carter lines up the shot at goal from 25m out on the angle and slots it. All Blacks lead 18-10.
Into the last 30 minutes now and the ABs lead by eight points. Looks like it will be a difficult finish to this one from both sides as conditions get worse and worse.
Penalty to the Pumas now. And a chance for the South American's to bring the game back within five points.
Sanchez should have no issues from 25m out right infront. Make no mistake, the Argies are still in this.
Sanchez slots it. All Blacks lead 18-13.
