Springboks lose to Argentina in Durban
Argentina have secured their first ever win over South Africa with a 37-25 win at Kings Park Stadium.
DURBAN - Argentina have secured their first ever win over South Africa with a 37-25 win at Kings Park Stadium in Durban this evening.
The Pumas outscoring the Springboks by four tries to three, with Argentine winger Juan Imhoff scoring a hatrick.
The visitors were deserved winners on the night, dominating the scrum in particular, but poor execution from the Springboks also cost them dearly tonight.
Marcelo Bosch scored the South Americans other try, as well as a penalty and a drop goal.
Lood de Jäger, Willie le Roux and Bryan Habana scored for the Boks, while an underperforming Handre Pollard scored 10 points with the boot.
Pollard made a number of errors, including to overkicked restarts which got the crowed booing and calling for him to be replaced by hometown boy Pat Lambie.
Pumas number 10 Juan Martin Hernandez was also impressive, only missing two penalties at goal.
Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer will now need to decide whether or not to field a second string team away to Argentina next week, in their last warm up game before the the World Cup, as Saturday evening's defeat left him with more questions than answers with the World Cup just over a month away.
