Cape Town - Beauden Barrett will start at flyhalf for the All Blacks against Argentina in Napier on Saturday after Aaron Cruden was ruled out with a chest injury, the website reports.

Cruden suffered the injury during the 51-20 victory over the Wallabies at Eden Park, and has failed to recover in time to take his place in the starting XV to be named on Thursday.

Barrett has played 21 Tests, but 19 of those have have come from the bench, with his two starts coming at fullback, against Italy in 2012, and Japan last year.
