South Africa's late rally sinks the Pumas
South Africa has preserved their unbeaten record against Argentina as they turned a 12-point deficit into a 33-31 victory in the last 20 minutes of a Rugby Championship encounter.
Argentina looked on course for a first-ever win in the annual four-nation southern hemisphere competition after two quick tries and a penalty after the interval put them 28-16 up at the Padre Ernesto Martearena Stadium.
South Africa, though, bounced back to hand the Pumas a narrow defeat.
Both sides scored three tries as Argentina's forwards ensured almost total domination for their team in the first hour before South Africa's superior fitness helped them claw their way back.
