SYDNEY: New Zealand thrashed Argentina 38-0 in a Tri-Nations test in Newcastle on Saturday to gain a measure of revenge for their stunning loss to the Pumas two weeks ago and snap a two-match losing streak.

The All Blacks earned a bonus point to move five points clear at the top of the standings and will secure the title if Argentina or Australia do not win the final match of the tournament in Sydney next weekend by a substantial margin.
