Argentina beat New Zealand for the first time in their history with a shock 25-15 win in the Rugby Championship.

It was Argentina’s first test in 13 months, the Pumas led 16-3 at the break and kept the All Blacks at bay to secure the win in Sydney. 


Fly-half Nicolas Sanchez scored all of Argentina's points with a try, six penalties and a conversion.


It’s the New Zealand team’s second defeat in a row, after losing 24-22 to Australia last week in Brisbane.


It’s the first time the team have been beaten in two consecutive matches since August 2011.
