The All Blacks are celebrating a 46‑24 win over Argentina last night but it hasn't come without issues with both Brodie Retallick and Ngani Laumape nursing injuries from the physical contest.

Both Retallick and Laumape were forced from the field early in last night's contest in Nelson.

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said there was some concerns for the duo.

Hansen says Laumape has a knee ligament injury while Retallick suffered a shoulder injury with both to undergo scans tomorrow.

There was also a third injury scare for the All Blacks early in the contest when Ben Smith was taken from the field for a head injury assessment but the fullback past the protocols and returned to the field.

In another Rugby Championship match last night, the Wallabies snapped a four‑match losing streak with a gritty 23‑18 win over the Springboks.

New Zealand are now leading the points table with 15 points, in second place is South Africa with 6 points, Argentina are in third place with 4 points while Australia is fourth also with 4 points.
