All Blacks prep for Puma match

By Rahia Timutimu

As the All Blacks prepare to face the Pumas in Argentina this weekend, Māori player, Aaron Cruden, is tipped to return to the starting line-up. He's recovered well from a knee injury and trained alongside the team, so is favoured to don the No. 10 jersey. 

Argentina are yet to beat the All Blacks, but Israel Dagg (Kahungunu) says there's still plenty they need to work on.

Richie McCaw also looks on track to be back in the team next weekend when the All Blacks play the Springboks, after suffering medial ligament damage when they faced Australia. 

The All Blacks are looking to defend their Rugby Championship title, and their team is expected to be named tomorrow.
