All Black halfback Piri Weepu is keeping to the status quo in preparation for tomorrow night's Rugby World Cup 2011 quarter final against Argentina.

He may be handed the goal kicking responsibilities for the match, with coach Graham Henry refusing to reveal who will have those duties.

Weepu says he's approaching the match no different.

"Keeping the same routine, not making dramatic changes. I'll prepare the same as the last four weeks," says Weepu.

The All Blacks have a captain's run this evening to finish their official preparation for the quarter-final.

The northern hemisphere sides will open the quarter-final action tonight.

Ireland and Wales will meet in the capital before England and France square at Eden Park.
