All Blacks: Hard graft beats Pumas

Not much beauty and not enough of the beast - other than win, the All Blacks didn't do anything last night to force any radical change in opinion about where they currently stand. They were neither emphatic nor catastrophic. They didn't leave any indelible impression in the way they went about their business. The endeavour was honest, the commitment to task all that it should have been, but there was no wow factor. It was functional, slug it out rugby.
