Watch Ma'a Nonu go into beast mode for the All Blacks this morning

New Ulster signing Charles Piutau also scored a well worked try.

THE ALL BLACKS looked in ominous form on the Rugby Championship opener this morning, scoring five tries en route to a 39-13 bonus point win against Argentina.

The Pumas put up a strong first half fight and trailed by just five before the break, but a Ma’a Nonu try with the final play of the half proved to be a killer blow.

The powerful centre went into full-on beast mode to score his effort, powering through four Argentina tacklers to get over the line.

Ulster fans will have been impressed with their new signing Charles Piutau, who scored New Zealand’s third try early in the second half.

The winger played a big part in the break that lead to the score, before clearing over a ruck on the following phase, before finding a gap from a few yards out to dive over in the corner.

Australia and South Africa get their campaigns under way tomorrow morning, but is there any stopping Steve Hansen’s All Blacks?
