Argentina have beaten New Zealand for the first time in their history with a 25-15 win in the Rugby Championship.

The match was Argentina’s first Test in 13 months, while the All Blacks suffered a second defeat in a row after last week’s loss to Australia.

The Pumas led 16-3 at the break and kept New Zealand at bay to secure a famous and shock win.

Fly-half Nicolas Sanchez scored all of Argentina’s points with a try, six penalties and a conversion.

Argentina captain Pablo Matera said, “This is a big day for Argentina rugby and also for our country and people, We are really proud of this team and of our country.”

New Zealand, who lost 24-22 to Australia last week in Brisbane, have been beaten in two consecutive Test matches for the first time since August 2011.
