South Africa

At the end of the first two (of six) contests in the Southern Hemisphere The Rugby Championship, South Africa stands atop the four-team league at 2-0, while New Zealand is second at 1-0-1.

Last week, the All Blacks, smarting after a 12-12 away tie to the Wallabies, routed their neighbors 51-20 with a terrific display of open field breakaways.

In Argentina, the Springboks barely won 33-31, against an improving Pumas side that only lost 13-6 in the first contest in South Africa.

The action resumes September 6 when Australia host South Africa, and New Zealand welcome Argentina in the next round of play.


Tri-Nations? Does that still exist? I've been watching this thing called the Rugby Championship. It's cool.
