New Zealand continued their winning run under coach Graham Henry with a 41-7 victory over Argentina in Hamilton today.

The Pumas, missing a host of regular first-choice players, made the hosts work hard for their five tries-to-one win - often disrupting the All Blacks line-out and contesting well at the breakdown to slow the delivery of the ball or forcing the turnover.

But ultimately the New Zealanders just had too much class in the back line with tries going to Tana Umaga, Joe Rokocoko, Sam Tuitupou and Mils Muliaina after Mose Tuiali'i had opened the account on his debut.

Andrew Mehrtens, making his first start in a black jersey for almost two years, was deadly accurate with the boot and converted all five tries while also adding two penalties for a total of 16 points.
