The All Blacks have started the Rugby Championship with three wins from three games, brushing aside Argentina 39-0 on the Gold Coast last Sunday.
All Blacks coach Ian Foster has opted to make sweeping changes for the secondary fixture against the Pumas as he looks to keep vitality within his squad with a six-day turnaround.
"Some of these changes are people who played significant minutes last weekend anyway against Argentina," Foster said.
"We know we had a good win last week and we know expectations are high on us, and the danger is if we think it is all just going to all happen, then we are going to get smacked so there's a lot of pressure on this group.
"We've got to make sure we have a really good performance this weekend and, from a Championship perspective, this win is vital for us."
Beauden Barrett has been managed for the upcoming South Africa Tests, with Damian McKenzie given a rare chance at five-eighth, with Richie Mo'unga absent on paternity leave.
Ardie Savea returns to skipper the side at open-side flanker, accommodating the return of Hoskins Sotutu at number eight.
Front rower Samisoni Taukei'aho earns his first start, alongside Joe Moody and Tyrel Lomax.
Injury-free Patrick Tuipulotu returns with Brodie Retallick rested, while Tupou Vaa'i gets his first start of the calendar year.
