If the Springboks are to win the Rugby Championship, they must defeat Argentina by a large margin in Durban on Saturday.

This comes after New Zealand defeated Australia 40-14 in Auckland.

With a points difference of 67, the All Blacks moved five points clear of the Springboks in the Rugby Championship standings (39 better than SA).

To claim a winning bonus point, the Springboks must not only score three tries more than Argentina, but they must also defeat Los Pumas by at least 39 points.

In the event that two teams finish level, Sanzaar rules state that the points difference between them during the season will determine the winner.

South Africa would be crowned champions with a 39-point victory because they have a combined 49-45 score over New Zealand in their two matches (26-10 and 23-35). More victories cannot be a factor because both teams would be equal in that regard.

Saturday’s game at Kings Park begins at 17:05.
