There's massive media interest in the All Blacks tour to Argentina.
The team is heading to Buenos Aires this afternoon on an Air New Zealand charter.
All Blacks team manager Darren Shand says the All Blacks normally keep to themselves overseas because there's so much demand at home.
But he says the rugby union in Argentina has had 900 applications for media accreditation for next Saturday's test.
"Which is phenomenal really. So there's obviously huge interest, so I think anywhere the team goes they'll be fair game for autographs, and we won't be running any sort-of public sessions, as such.
Darren Shand thinks the Pumas will have fanatical support during the tour.
