South Africa ready for historic Argentina match

  • Intro:

    The South African Springboks arrived quietly into the Argentine capital Buenos Aires on Sunday ahead of their game against the Pumas on Saturday.


    The second weekend of the Rugby Championship sees Argentina looking for revenge against South Africa. 

    Springbok captain Jean de Villiers says the team are excited about having a new team in the championship.

    SOUNDBITE (English) 

    "It's fantastic. You know I've been to Argentina a couple of times, I haven't been to Mendoza and you know of the team, the last Springbok team, the last team that played here in 2005, I think its only Bryan and myself that's left of that squad, so a lot of guys haven't been to Argentina. And definitely it's nice to have a new stopover, you know, in this competition."

    "You know the Pumas, it's their first game at home in this competition so they'll be out to prove a point. We know that they'll be tough, we know that they'll emotionally up for it and mentally up for it so you know we're prepared for a massive battle on Saturday."

    De Villiers will be hoping hometown advantage counts for nothing as they take on the Argentines in Mendoza this weekend.
