NZRU chairman Mike Eagle and board director Gerard van Tilburg have been mugged in Argentina, just metres from the All Blacks hotel in Buenos Aires.
Van Tilburg had a Rolex watch stolen but neither man was hurt during a brief scuffle with two men, who fled on motorbikes.
The incident happened just minutes before the two men were due to check out of the hotel.
The mugging comes after TVNZ reporter Steve Marshall had his camera stolen in the city a week ago and four members of a tour group were mugged.
Eagle and Van Tilberg were accompanying the All Blacks on their trip to Argentina to play the Pumas in the inaugural Rugby Championship.
