The All Blacks are looking to unleash a "beast" against Argentina in their Rugby Championship clash tomorrow as they seek to continue to build depth and put pressure on a resurgent South Africa.
With Liam Squire rested from the side that beat the Wallabies in their opening two matches and Jerome Kaino still out as he deals with a personal issue, Coach Steve Hansen handed rookie loose forward Vaea Fifita his first start.
Hansen had promised to experiment with his team and duly made seven changes to his starting side for the match tomorrow.
Coach Hansen says that he wants to see a real physical beast in Fifita who now weighs 116kg having put more than six kilograms onto his 1.96m frame since being in the All Blacks setup.
Nehe Milner‑Skudder returns after an injury‑plagued of two years.
The Pumas have never beaten New Zealand in 24 attempts.
The All Blacks will take on Argentina at 7.35pm tomorrow.
