Winning start for South Africa in Rugby Championship

August 18, 2018 5:03 pm

South Africa scored four tries in the second half to come from behind and beat Argentina 34-21 in the Rugby Championship, avoiding a second straight surprise defeat by the Pumas in Durban.

The Springboks outscored the Pumas by six tries to three, but again they made heavy work of claiming victory before finishing strongly.

The Springboks trailed 14-5 after 30 minutes, but they reduced the deficit to four points by halftime and then scored four tries after the interval to ensure a winning start to the annual southern hemisphere competition.

Argentina hosts the Springboks in a return game next weekend.
