Moody - who has started all seven of New Zealand's Test matches at loosehead prop this year - sustained the injury during the All Blacks' less than convincing 39-22 win over Argentina in New Plymouth.

"Our message at half-time was to stay on task because we were doing a good job, but we only kept it up for another 20 minutes instead of 40".

New Zealand coach Steve Hansen labelled Vaea Fifita as a "tank with plenty in it" after a fine debut, but recognised the All Blacks have yet to hit top gear following a scare against Argentina. He's got a long way to go.

"It's our job to bring it out, it's his job to get better and better and reach that potential".

It was a Test the All Blacks were never expected to lose - having won 24 previous matches against the Argentinians - and they won the try count six to one.

He compared his physicality to that of noted former All Blacks hardmen Jerry Collins, Chris Masoe and Rodney So'oialo and said he was impressed most of all with Fifita's pace.

In the first half, as the All Blacks continued to suffer from the indecision and handling errors that plagued them in their last Test against Australia, Argentina were quick to cash in.

When Nicolas Sanchez replied with a close-range penalty, the All Blacks were immediately back on the attack with Anton Lienert-Brown winning the race for the ball to score off a Beauden Barrett chip kick.

The game was still in the balance with 20 minutes remaining but tries from Damian McKenzie and Barrett either side of a Lima Sopoaga penalty gave New Zealand a third straight win.
