Los Pumas lost against the Springboks 22-17
Argentina, August 24, 2013
Despite improved their image, Los Pumas suffered a defeat 22-17 against South Africa.
After the crushing defeat last weekend in Johannesburg by 73-13, the teams clashed again in the Malvinas Argentinas stadium in Mendoza and the celebrations were again for the Africans, who were imposed, this time, by a narrow 22 – 17.
South Africa achieved its second consecutive victory and leads the standings with New Zealand, which had earlier beaten Australia.
The Rugby Championship will have a week’s break and will resume on Saturday, September 7 when the Pumas visit to New Zealand and Australia get to South Africa.
