South Africa vs Argentina confirmed lineups: team news ahead of Rugby Championship match

Argentina travel to South Africa for the rugby championship on Saturday and Michael Cheika’s side will seek revenge.

They lost to the Boks at home last weekend and Cheika says it was a poor first half that cost them.

“The first half is one of the worst I remember, we conceded a lot of penalties,” said Cheika. “In the second we came into play. It was a missed opportunity but I will go to South Africa with the same players.

“We were able to make contacts (in the second half) and arrange things. I think we got strong at times and went back to basics to push hard.”

But who will represent both sides? Here’s everything you need to know.

When is it?

The game will take place on Saturday 24th September at 4:05pm BST.
