Rugby Championship 2017: Springboks vs Argentina

The Springboks will go head to head against Argentina in the first test of the Rugby Championship in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

Rugby commentator Xola Ntshinga says it is going to be an interesting game and the Argentine's are not a team to be taken lightly especially after a loss in Durban.

Yes they'll be confident from what we have seen the Boks do and the type of rugby they can play but it is sort of going into the unknown.

Xola Ntshinga, Rugby commentator

I think they might be a little bit more conservative.
