Creevy and Senatore can’t halt All Blacks’ third consecutive title

Warriors pair Agustin Creevy and Leonardo Senatore both featured in The Rugby Championship at the weekend but couldn’t stop the mighty All Blacks from beating Argentina 34-13 in La Plata.

New Zealand captain Richie McCaw equalled a record for All Blacks appearances as the world champions sealed their third successive Rugby Championship.

The visitors earned a bonus point by scoring four tries through Ben Smith, Israel Dagg, Julian Savea and TJ Perenara while Beauden Barrett kicked 14 points.

Argentina fly-half Nicolas Sanchez slotted two first-half penalties for the Pumas, who were unable to breach the tourists' defence until replacement Horacio Agulla scored a consolation try in the final two minutes.

The win gave the All Blacks an unassailable six-point lead over South Africa with one match to play.

Argentina's final game of the tournament is at home to Australia this Saturday, in which captain Creevy and Senatore should again feature.
