South Africa vs Argentina preview

Was it just a blip, or are South Africa a little off the pace? The world champions were made to eat humble pie two weeks ago, though they'll still have an outside chance of taking the 2023 Rugby Championship crown if they can score a bonus point victory over Argentina, who have delivered the most memorable moment of the tournament so far.

The Pumas responded to their brutal defeat to New Zealand by coming from behind not once but twice to stun Australia on their own turf, a last-minute effort from Juan Martín González securing their first ever back-to-back victories over the Wallabies. We've grown used to Michael Cheika's side scoring seismic upsets, but up until now they've tended to happen as one-offs. 

If they're able to follow it up against the Springboks, they could throw the South Africans into turmoil. Jacques Nienaber has admitted that he got things wrong against the All Blacks, who trampled all over his side in the opening 20 minutes, and it was difficult not to draw the conclusion that there is such a thing as too much tinkering.

Calls for Malcolm Marx, Duane Vermeulen and Pieter-Steph du Toit to return to the starting lineup are growing increasingly difficult to ignore, especially after the latter two managed to bring South Africa into the game a fortnight ago. This could be the Boks' final home game as world champions, and here's how to watch a free South Africa vs Argentina live stream wherever you are.
