All Blacks v Argentina:
Following Ireland's win, the Pumas are probably in a race to be the next tier one nation to beat the All Blacks for the first time (with Scotland). But the stats don't suggest that will happen anytime soon (especially at home):
Games - played 24 times since 1985, for 23 wins and one 21-21 draw in 1985. 
Average score - For 40.6 v Against 13.9 (Home 48.0 v 13.0, Away 31.8 v 16.0)
Tries - average 4.6 All Black tries per test (Home 5.3, Away 3.9)
Excluding the 1985 drawn test, the points differential has been less than 10 points on just 2 occasions, the last being 2006.
