Jump to: navigation, search

Argentina and South Africa first met in 1993. Until 2012, these two teams did not tour each other regularly and encounters between them were rare in the professional era. This changed in 2012, when Argentina joined the SANZAR nations in the annual Rugby Championship tournament (formerly the Tri Nations). Argentina avoided defeat for the first time in the second match of the 2012 Rugby Championship with a draw on home ground.
