The All Blacks welcome back star fly-half Dan Carter to their starting line-up for Saturday's Rugby Championship clash with Argentina at La Plata.
Carter reclaims the number 10 jersey from Aaron Cruden after New Zealand's vice-captain missed the last two Tests with a calf injury.
Cruden drops to the bench along with scrum-half Piri Weepu, which means Aaron Smith will wear the number nine jersey following his impressive performance off the pine against South Africa two weeks ago.
There are two further changes on the bench, with young openside flanker Sam Cane replacing Victor Vito and Ben Smith prefered ahead of Tamati Ellison.
"We have huge respect for the Pumas, who have shown in the tournament just how good they are, and we are expecting even more from them this weekend as they are playing at home in front of their passionate fans," said All Blacks coach Steve Hansen.
"The team has really enjoyed the build-up in Buenos Aires and the culture that the country has to offer, but we know that it will be down to business on Saturday and the team are excited by that challenge."
