The Castle Lager Rugby Championship is the Southern hemisphere’s answer to the Six Nations. Arguably the toughest international rugby tournament in the world, the competition features Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and South Africa (returning after a year’s absence).
Boks coach Jacques Nienaber has rung the changes ahead of round two. Marvin Orie comes in for Eben Etzebeth while Franco Mostert replaces Kwagga Smith on the side of the scrum. Meanwhile, Lock Thomas du Toit and prop Trevor Nyakane will once again attempt to plough the plucky Pumas into the ground.
“Argentina will come hard at us, so we know we need to perform much better than last week to get the desired result,” said Nienaber. “While we were pleased with the victory and to start our Castle Lager Rugby Championship campaign on a winning note, there was a lot of room for improvement in our performance.”
After notching up a shock win against the All Black last year, the Pumas are no longer the Rugby Championship whipping boys and will be eager to prove it this Saturday. Pumas coach Mario Ledesma has also rung the changes for the second test. His starting XV will be led by Julian Montoya, while Ignacio Mendy makes his international out debut on the wing.

Watch Argentina vs South Africa from anywhere using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant 2021 Rugby Championship rights holders, you won’t be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
