All Blacks Rout Argentina to Secure Inaugural Rugby Championship

New Zealand routed Argentina 54-15 to secure the southern hemisphere’s inaugural Rugby Championship with a game to spare as South Africa beat Australia 31-8 for its second win in the tournament.

The world champion All Blacks outscored the Pumas by seven tries to two last night in La Plata, all coming through the backs. Cory Jane touched down three times, fellow winger Julian Savea went over twice, with scrum-half Aaron Smith and inside center Ma’a Nonu adding the others.
