toThe All Blacks qualified for their fifth World Cup final with a 44-6 win over Argentina on Saturday, and are waiting to find out whether South Africa or England will follow them. With seven tries scored, New Zealand demolished the Pumas in the semi-final with no suspense, despite a good start from the South Americans.
Sky and White opened the scoring with a penalty kick by Emiliano Bovelli, rewarding the ambitious start. But the New Zealanders quickly took control of the match, and led by 14 points before the break (20-6).
Faster and stronger, the three-time world champion (1987, 2011 and 2015) dominated the South American national team in all areas of the game, such as the three tries of winger Will Jordan (11H62H73H(, bringing his total tally to eight in this tournament, equaling the record set by his compatriots Jonah Lomu, Julian Savea and South African Brian Habana.Read also Serge Raffy – France vs South Africa: Blues, bad losers?
