Francois Hougaard will replace Ross Cronje in the starting line up to face the Argentinians in Salta this weekend, the only change to the starting line-up from last week.

The elevation of Hougaard to the starting team means a spot on the bench for Rudy Paige. Those are the only changes from last week. Coach Allister Coetzee said the way the team played last week made it easy to select practically the same team again.

Young Curwin Bosch will look to make a better impact from the bench when he earns his second cap.

15. Andries Coetzee (Emirates Lions), 4 caps, 0 points

  • Continuity will be good. Its never an easy game in Salta…also doesnt end up being the prettiest to watch. It will be scrappy and brutal. Think the Boks should take this but an every Argie score and things could get interesting
