After the fourth week of the Tri-Nations, All Blacks are still top of the log despite having not been in action last weekend.
The side maintained the top spot after Argentina and Australia played to a 15-15 draw last weekend. All Blacks had five points from their opening day’s 43-5 win over Wallabies then picked a losing bonus point in their 24-22 defeat to Wallabies to take their tally to six.
A point difference 26 sees them stay on top while Argentina who have conceded the least number of points (30) in the opening two matches sit second with six points and a point difference of 10, having scored 40 points from the last two matches.
The hosts Australia have also picked six points though they are bottom due to a points difference of -36. They have conceded a total of 80 points and have scored 44.
After last weekend’s rest, All Blacks are set to return to action against Argentina on Saturday 11:45 AM East African Time.
They will be hoping to avenge their 25-15 loss and bounce back to winning ways. Australia will have a break this weekend.
