Anyone who thought that the Tri-Nations was just a glorified excuse for the Wallabies and All Blacks to lock horns obviously forgot to tell Argentina. The Pumas have hopped over the Pacific and delivered a string of hugely impressive performances, starting with a historic 25-15 victory over New Zealand that sent shockwaves through the rugby world. Can they do it all again today? We're about to find out. Follow our guide to get an Argentina vs New Zealand live stream and watch Tri-Nations 2020 rugby online, wherever you are in the world right now.
Not only did Argentina beat the Kiwis, they followed it up with another hugely impressive result, fighting back to draw 15-15 with Australia in their last Rugby Championship outing. Whisper it softly, but the Pumas are now masters of their own destiny in the Southern Hemisphere tournament, currently sitting level with Australia and New Zealand on 6 points, but enjoy a game in hand.
New Zealand vs Argentina is being played in Newcastle, NSW, with kick-off scheduled for 7.45pm local time (AEDT), which is 9.45pm NZDT, 8.45am GMT in the UK, and a 5.45am ART start in Argentina. The clash is being shown on Sky Sports in NZ and on Fox Sports and Kayo Sports in Australia - but wherever you are, having a good VPN in your pack will let you stream your preferred coverage all over the world.
With the nation currently mourning the death of national icon Diego Maradona, they'll be keen to lift spirits back home with another quality performance, so an uncommon amount of pressure is now on coach Ian Foster and the All Blacks, with the three-time World Cup winners now having suffered rare back-to-back defeats
Foster has resisted wholesale changes to his side, however, making just three changes to the side that lost to Argentina last time out. All three are to the pack rather than the backline that was so disappointing in the first game between the two teams, with loose forward Akira Ioane, lock Scott Barrett and tighthead Nepo Laulala all coming into the starting XV for today's clash.
This is suddenly a match that's as big as they come in rugby union, so read on as we explain how to watch an Argentina vs New Zealand live stream and catch all the action from the 2020 Tri-Nations online this Saturday.
