FULL TIME - ALL BLACKS 28 ARGENTINA 13
Sanchez grazes the crossbar from 45 metres and the ball bounces back into the All Blacks hands. But Conrad Smith loses the ball forward. Pumas scrum 10m out.
20 minutes left and Argies trail by 12. They really need a try from this possession to give them some hope.
But they lose the ball. Good defence from the ABs to force the error.
Richie McCaw hobbles off the field. He does not look good. Sam Cane comes on to replace him.
Bit of Argentinian flare now from Hernandez, who fires a one handed pass across the goal line to Marcelo Bosch. Very brave in these conditions, the crowd loved it.
Pumas earn a penalty at scrum time with an incredible powerful push. Sanchez fires the ball 50 m down field and they work their way into another promising position.
But they concede a penalty. Barrett is able to take the sting out of the Argentinian attack with a raking clearance down field.
Just over 15 minutes to go on a miserable old night in Hamilton. But the crowd are loud and proud, belting out a stadium-wide rendition of 10 guitars.
Cane to Crockett to Faumuina along the Pumas goal line, advantage played, knock-on. Barrett kicks for touch. It will be an All Black lineout from 5m.
Pumas win the ball but get caught in goal. All Blacks scrum 5m out now.
Scrum collapses. Looks like a footing issue. This game has lost a bit of its bite. Seems like the conditions are catching up with everyone.
This time the ABs go wide to Smith but the pass is awkward and he has to kick the ball forward and it goes straight out.
I feel like the last ten minutes have been wasted on collapsed scrums. And now another scrum collapses.
Piutau comes on for Dagg and Franks comes on for Faumuina.
Nine minutes to go in this one as I witness another scrum penalty. The second half here has fizzled out somewhat.
Finally some running rugby as the ABs attack through Aaron Smith. The ball eventually finds Barrett and he places a well judges kick in behind the Pumas and into space.
Penalty All Blacks. A cynical t-shirt pull on Saili from Lobbe prevents a certain try. But no yellow card? He's a very lucky bearded man.
Barrett adds another three. All Blacks lead 28-13.
