It's been 31 years without a victory over All Blacks, can Argentina finally break the drought?

Saturday will be the 23rd meeting between the two nations with the All Blacks winning 21 of the previous 22 clashes.

The closest Argentina have come to beating the All Blacks in the 31 years was a 21-all draw in 1986. Scott Robertson denied the Pumas a famous victory in 2001 with a late try, while Argentina got within six points in 2006 going down 25-19 in Buenos Aires.

Since arriving in the Rugby Championship in 2012, Argentina have certainly improved but still lose to the All Blacks by an average margin on 20 points. They have had success in the Rugby Championship however, having beaten South Africa twice and Australia once.
