History of rugby union matches between Argentina and South Africa

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, and won for the first time in the shortened Rugby Championship in 2015, in South Africa. They earned their first ever home victory over South Africa on 27 August during the 2016 Rugby Championship.
