New Zealand have seen off a gutsy Argentina side 21-5 in the Rugby Championship.

Argentina found themselves 5-3 up after 13 minutes as Rodrigo Roncero barged over for the opening try of the match.

The All Blacks edged back ahead through the boot of Aaron Cruden, putting the world champions 6-5 up at half-time.

Argentina came out fighting in the second half but failed to add any more points. New Zealand scored two quick-fire tries in the 66th and 72nd minutes through Julian Savea and Corey Jane respectively.

The Argentines continued to buffer the All Blacks' line but to no avail as New Zealand ran out 21-5 winners.
