Ian Foster says the “weight is off” the shoulders of the All Blacks as they head into a Rugby Championship test against Argentina on Saturday with him confirmed as head coach for another year.

NZ vs Pumas Rugby : How the All Blacks plan to build on Ellis Park victory

Push aside Ian Foster’s retention as All Blacks head coach, for a moment at least, to consider the statement performance at Ellis Park. In that regard, the expected standard has been set.

The All Blacks cannot replicate the backs-to-the-wall siege mentality that inspired their upset triumph against the Springboks in Johannesburg. And they cannot afford for that effort to be a one off.

McCaw has been strongly linked to the director’s role for months. He will be the representative of the NZ Rugby Players Association, which is led by Rob Nichol.

McCaw and Nichol are long-term friends, famously competing in endurance events together down the years.

McCaw initially expressed scepticism about the Silver Lake deal as NZ Rugby and the NZRPA clashed over the deal, but the players’ opposition to the deal diminished when a series of their demands were met, and they also developed a direct relationship with Silver Lake representatives.

Argentina squad named for New Zealand Tests

Argentina spent a week in Sydney preparing for their first Lipovitan-D Rugby Championship Test against the All Blacks in Christchurch on Saturday. The South Americans are in the rare position of sitting atop the Championship ladder for the first time since they joined the competition in 2012.

The Pumas play the All Blacks in Christchurch, the first Test in the city since 2016, and then a week later the teams meet again in Hamilton.

Missing from the touring side will be centre Jerónimo de la Fuente. He suffered an injury to his left leg in the second Test.

Returning to the side, however, are Guido Petti, Mayco Vivas, Benjamin Urdapilleta, Eduard Bello and Santiago Socino.

The touring squad is: Thomas Babyrobe, Matthias German, Lautaro Bazan Velez, Edward Beautiful, Gonzalo Bertranou, Emilian Boffelli, Rodrigo Bruni, Santiago Races, Lucio Cinti, Santiago Lamb, Thomas Cubelli, Bautista Delguy, Thomas Rooster, Juan Martin Gonzalez, Santiago Grondona, Facundo Isa, Marcos Kremer, Thomas Lavanini, Juan Cruz Mallia, Pablo Matera, Santiago Medrano, Lucase Mensa, Julian Montoya (captain), Matias Moroni, Matthias Orlando, Joaquin Oviedo, Guido Petti, Ignatius Ruiz, Joel Sclavi, Santiago Socino, Benjamin Urdapilleta, Mayco Vivas.
