Preview: South Africa v Argentina

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 06:18

RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND ONE: rugby365's acclaimed writer Paul Dobson gives us his view on the second match of the four-nation tournament.

Your guess is as good as mine.

A while ago, you would have had no doubt that South Africa would win. It may not be by a lot, but they would won.

After all that's what good teams do. But that all started to change in 2015.

In the Rugby Championship in 2015 and 2016 South Africa played Argentina four times.

The result? Two-all.

And one of Argentina's two was in Durban.

In 19 matches before Durban, the two teams had met 19 times and the Pumas had never won. Then they won two of the next five.

It is anybody's guess.

But then you say: "Yes, but look at what happened in June. It was a new Springboks team, one with spirit."

True, South Africa beat a French team, weakened by the Top 14 Final, in three home Tests and comfortably - 37-14, 37-15 and 35-12.

And at the same time, Argentina lost to an England team, weakened by the British and Irish Lions' tour, in two home Tests - 25-35 and 34-38.

That suggests that South Africa is in a better state, but they have lost the leader in whom they have great faith - Warren Whiteley, who may just have boosted the Springboks flagging spirits.

Can Eben Etzebeth keep it going - a man with glittering eyes and a different body language from earnest, but smiling, Whiteley?

The Pumas have their established captain Agustín Creevy - an excellent hooker and a ball thief of note.

It has been frequently said that the Pumas are not the Jaguares. Playing for Jaguares was a job of work, but playing for the Pumas is a patriotic act of great fervour. You will have seen the ardour with which they end their anthem.

Coronados de gloria vivamos,
O juremos con gloria morir.

The choice - life with the crown of glory or a glorious death.

What will the tactics be? Will Nicolás Sánchez kick so shrewdly that the Springbok defence becomes increasingly jittery? Will the Springboks lift the tempo so much that the Pumas become confused and defensive.

The Pumas of old scrummed and mauled, and did not seem to have anything positive to do after that. Daniel Hourcade's Pumas are different. They are players who can strike in a flash, the way their ancestors could not.

The forwards on both sides are likely to be as adept at getting possession and making sure that the opposing pack has no leeway.

The critical part may be what happens after that and a great deal of that depends on the halfbacks - Ross Cronje and Elton Jantjies for South Africa and Martín Landajo and Nicolás Sánchez for Argentina.

Here a combination of efficiency and creativity could be a winning recipe.

Players to Watch

For South Africa: At fullback Andries Coetzee has speed and flare, and often with the space to use both. You would want to watch Jan Serfontein, hoping fervently that he can play the exciting way he played against France, the Bulls' heavy yoke cast aside. And who would not want to watch each one of the Springboks? Will we see the flashing eyes and menacing smile of South Africa's giant captain, Eben Etzebeth?

For Argentina: Like his Springbok counterpart Pumas fullback Joaquín Tuculet plays with speed and flare, and often with the space to use both. You always notice Agustín Creevy with the apologetic look and slightly embarrassed gait that hide a man of courage strength and skill beyond his precision at line-out and his strength in scrums.

Head to Head: There is always a battle between scrumhalves - Martín Landajo, playing his 70th Test, Ross Cronje his third. Landajo is aggressive, Cronje set on his job. Both are brave. Speed of service will count a great deal - far more important than strutting. Will the difference in experience count? Wings versus wings. Big Emiliano Boffelli and swift, strong Ramiro Moyano may prove handfuls for Courtnall Skosan and Raymond Rhule, and the two Pumas are sure to want to try them out. In the battle between the two sets of loose forward there could be a more individual battle between Jaco Kriel and Pablo Matera - both strong, fast and brave.

Recent results:
2016: Argentina    won 26-24, Salta
2016: South Africa won 30-23, Nelspruit
2015: South Africa won 24-13, London (World Cup third-place plat-off)
2015: South Africa won 26-12, Buenos Aires
2015: Argentina won 37-25, Durban
2014: South Africa won 33-31,  Salta
2014: South Africa won 13-6, Pretoria
2013: South Africa won 22-17, Mendoza
2013: South Africa won 73-13, Soweto
2012: South Africa and Argentina drew 16-all, Mendoza
2012: South Africa won 27-6, Cape Town

The results to look at most closely are those of 2015 and 2016.

Prediction: Argentina have won two of their last five games against South Africa after having won none of the previous 19 encounters between the two nations; they'll also be searching for consecutive wins against the Springboks for the first time. South Africa are undefeated from their previous four fixtures at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, restricting their opponents to just 10 points per game on average at the venue. Argentina will be searching for back-to-back wins for the first time since June 2016 after a 45-29 win against Georgia earlier this year. South Africa head into the game on the back of a three-game series whitewash against France, the last time they won more games in succession was a four-game streak during the Rugby World Cup in 2015. However, the Springboks have lost seven of their last nine games in The Rugby Championship, including their heaviest home defeat ever in their last such match (15-57 v New Zealand). Argentina enjoyed the most time in possession of any team in The Rugby Championship 2016 (17 minutes, 12 seconds per game), as well as boasting the best ruck success rate (96 percent) of any of the four nations. Juan Manuel Leguizamon (77) is poised to equal Pedro Sporleder (78) as the third most capped forward in Pumas history; only Rolando Martin (86) and Mario Ledesma Arocena (84) have played more. Facundo Isa made 85 carries in last year's edition of the tournament, 15 more than any other player, while he gained the most metres of any forward (361). Jean-Luc du Preez is yet to miss a tackle for South Africa, he made 28/28 against France during the June Test Series, the most of any player to maintain a 100 percent success rate. Nicolas Sanchez was successful with 20 of 23 attempts at goal in The Rugby Championship 2016, giving him the best goal success rate (87 percent) of any player to have made more than three attempts. It's anybody's guess but in the belief that the Springbok forwards will get the upperhand, and that the Springbok centres will create opportunities, we suggest that the Springboks will win by five points or so.

Boks start with impressive win over Pumas

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 15:00

RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP REPORT: South Africa got their campaign off to an impressive start with a 37-15 win over Argentina in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

I saw a man kiss his wife at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

The Springboks had scored a try on their way to a 37-15 victory over the Pumas, and the man and his wife were wearing lots of garb to suggest that they were Springbok supporters. His kiss was one of excitement and joy.

Lots of South Africans will feel the same joyful excitement after the Springboks' fourth win in 2017 - especially after the dismal 2016 season.

The score has a look of déjà vu about it after the three victories over France. They were 37-14, 37-15 and 35-12, and now we have 37-15, not that a single Springbok supporter will object. For them it will be a lekker déjà vu.

Well and enthusiastically as Argentina played South Africa never seemed in danger of not winning. In fact, they dominated the first half and most of the second half as well.

For one thing the Springbok forwards were on top, largely because they had more chance to be on top. In the first half they had five line-outs to the Pumas' one, six scrums to three and five penalties to two.  They enjoyed 64% of possession and so of territory. It seems niggardly that they ended the half leading only 13-7, but the Pumas are not pushovers. They defended bravely.

Nelson Bay Stadium was nearly full and the 42 000 who were there were bubbling with excitement. They contained themselves as five dignitaries were introduced to the teams and then Argentina's passionate anthem was sung and then they threw their heads back and sang the South African anthem, telling the world where the loyalties lay.

South Africa kicked off, won a turnover and attacked with Jan Serfontein, a man of Port Elizabeth, looking most likely to burst away. They went through 16 phases and then were penalised.

Their first score was from a penalty conceded by Tomás Lezana and their second score was also from a penalty conceded by a Tomás Lezana. 6-0 after 19 minutes.

After just 13 minutes, Leonardo Senatore was helped off the fiwld with what looked like a damaged knee, his place taken byJavier Ortega Desio.

In between there was what seemed to be a try by Jaco Kriel, not allowed for a dubious knock-on call - dubious because it seemed off an Argentinian hand.

The Springboks also tapped a kickable penalty and attacked, but Agustín Creevy won a turnover.

For all the Springbok dominance, the Pumas scored the first try.

The Springboks were on an attack of phases when Serfontein, going right, grubbered. The kick went straight to fullback Joaquín  Tuculet who raced straight ahead. He gave to wing  Emiliano Boffelli who ran and grubbered to his left. Martín Landajo raced onto the ball flykicked it ahead, grabbed the kind bounce and scored the first try of the match. 6-5 after 32 minutes.

From a scrum on the Springboks left, Jantjies gave a little pass inside to Courtnall Skosan. Jerónimo del Fuente knocked him down but apparently did not hold onto him. Skosan got to his feet beat three defenders and scored under the posts. 13-5 after 37 minutes - the half-time score.

The Pumas looked better in the second half as Creevy had a run from the front of a line-out, Tuculet ran well again and Malcolm Marx was penalised, the penalty goaled by Nicolás Sánchez. 13-8 after 45 minutes but Jantjies compensated with a penalty of his own. 16-8 after 48 minutes.

The Springboks went in search of tries, eschewing penalty kicks at goal from now on. A penalty gave them a five-metre line-out, they mauled and then bashed and then went wide right where Raymond Rhule accepted Serfontein's perfect pass and scored. Both wings, with three caps each, now had a try each. Jantjies topped it up with a conversion. 23-8 after 52 minutes.

Two penalties gave the Pumas a five-metre line-out. They bashed and Guido Petti was close, but then they went wide left with quick passes by Juan-Martín Hernández and Tuculet that left Boffelli free to dab the ball down for a try in the left corner. Hernández converted from touch. 23-15 after 59 minutes.

Both sides were making substitutes at this stage.

The sequence of penalty, five-metre line-out and maul set the Springboks going wide left and then wide right where Siya Kolisi, a man of Port Elizabeth, surged over and round for a try at the posts, to the noisy joy of all the stadium. 30-5 after 66 minutes.

The Springboks - again - mauled from a line-out and Marx went on a charge. They went right and the Pumas were penalised in front of their posts. The Springboks opted for a scrum. They shoved the Pumas back, Francois Hougaard broke and Pieter-Steph du Toit, under several defenders, managed to get the ball down on the line. 37-15 with nine minutes to play.

There was a huge Port Elizabeth cheer when Curwin Bosch came onto the field with three minutes to play. He was one of three boys from the local Grey in the side - Serfontein, Kolisi and Bosch.

Man of the Match: Joaquín Tuculet and Agustín Creevy were special but then there were Springboks who stood out as well - Andries Coetzee, Courtnall Skosan, Siya Kolisi and Jaco Kriel on the flanks,  and our Man of the Match diligent tighthead Coenie Oosthuizen who was strong and busy about the field and the powerhouse in the Springboks scrum that destroyed the Pumas where they are supposed to be strongest.

Moment of the Match: The try that Joaquín Tuculet started and Martín Landajo ended. Apart from the man who kissed his wife, that is.

Villain of the Match: Nobody at all. It was a well-mannered match.
