All Blacks’ Puma pounding great for tourney
Sports commentator Ken Laban says the All Blacks’ decisive victory over Argentina on Saturday was a timely return to form that will reinvigorate the Rugby Championship.
The 53-3 win over the Pumas puts New Zealand one point ahead at the top of the table.
He says it’s good to see a competition that is not dominated by one team.
“It’s timely where we’ve got a competition where we are on the edge of our seats, trying to estimate who is going to win so I would have thought from a promotion, marketing, point of view the organisers of this year’s Rugby Championship would be very pleasef,” he says.
Ken Laban says new players brought freshness to the All Blacks’ forward pack and performed well on the field.
