Springboks v Los Pumas: TV details, team news and kick-off time

The Springboks will likely need a big win over Los Pumas to win this year’s rugby championship.

South Africa currently sit level on points with New Zealand on 14 points at the top of the rugby championship table, although the All Blacks sit first on points difference.

New Zealand have a 41-point lead while South Africa have a +28 points difference, both sides will go into the finals very cautiously.

South Africa will know exactly what to do before kick-off against Argentina as New Zealand play Australia a few hours earlier this morning where anything could range from a bonus point gained to a bonus point lost.

Argentina technically have a chance of winning the rugby championship by a bonus point win, although realistically they will be aiming for a win of any kind against the reigning world champions.
