Argentina showed some great attitude and class beating the Springboks on Saturday 32-19.
It was a comprehensive victory as they unsettled the Springboks in the set pieces. They were great on defence although it seems the referee did not pick up offside from the Argentinians.
The Springboks started the game well enough with ball in hand showing that they wanted to let the ball do the work.
Argentina put the first points on the board with a penalty but the Springboks hit back immediately with a try from Kolisi.
Argentina answered with a brilliant try from Delguy after pushing the Springboks to creat space out wide with great passing.
Argentina seemed to lift their game at this stage and Delguy went over for his second try creating number out wide.
Big moment in the game was when Eben Etzebeth got a yellow card for a professional foal in the red zone.
Argentina took full advantage of the yellow card with Sanchez that found the space out wide to score another try.
This gave Argentina a 22-7 lead and totally in control.
Sanchez was not finished as he slotted over a drop goal before the break to take the lead to 27-7 with allot to do for the Springboks.
The second half did not start well for the Springboks as Moyona runs down the line to score for the home side. The Argentinians put themselves in a great position from here on end.
The Springboks hit back with a try they had to work hard for to get Mapoe over the line in the corner.
The Springboks had most of the ball for the rest of the game but could not finish the opportunities that came their way.
Poor decision making did not help from key players like De Klerk, Pollard and Le Roux.
In the 65th minute Mapoe got over for his second try in the corner to give the Springboks a slight hope to still come back.
This did not happen with losing lineouts at will and again not taking the opportunities that came there way.
Angus Gardner gave allot of lea-way to Argentina in the red zone with plenty of penalties coming in that second half but at the end the Springboks was just not good enough.
One can always say the referee this and the referee that but the referee does not drop balls, make poor decisions and are not up in defence.
Under Rassie this was the worst performance from the Boks so far.
