    im not even sure who i want to win here. boks have always been my favourite adversaries but then puma's have been one of my favourite underdogs and now they are reaching their potential.
    good luck both teams. may there be amazing rugby played and in good spirits with no injuries

    That's so nice of you, thanks. But I'm wondering if you say that because of the RC curse in the world Cup year? Maybe Ab supporters want the Boks to win to avoid the WC curse :rolleyes:

    So I would like to see more expirementation. Not too much. Keep most of our best squad but try out some players and give them a chance to make the world Cup squad. START Reinach, Steyn, Coetzee, Koch, Louw. RASSIE should tell them show me why you deserve a place in the world Cup squad. Trust me these guys have the calibre to play for the Springboks and if we give them that wc motivation then they won't be letting us down in trying to win the RC which South Africa might need to do with a bonus point.

    Yeah, I don't think we'll see as much experimentation as we'd want. I think Rassie is going to put out a very strong team, as this is our 2nd last game before the World Cup.

    I think it's more about tweaking a few things that might still bug him before we go to the World Cup. And I have a suspicion that Rassie wants the cup RC trophy too.

    No way. I’d like NZ to do a grand slam. Take the super title, RC,bledisloe and WC in one season.

    yes if i was rassie i would try to trash argentina and try to grab the RC why not? is almost there. its just one game it wont make a diference at the word cup.
    spcecially that we bet everyting vs the abs and lost. nothing to loose so i guess ledesma is gonna field a b or experimental team for this
    bocks by 15+ :(
    it could be great if SA gets this year RC it could be a historic doble crown

    Not only that, we play each other again on the 17th of August, so why not go for the title in this match.

    I want Argentina to win, but I think South Africa is just too strong. The Springboks should win it.

    I honestly don't know want to expect from this game. On paper both teams are strong (I think both coaches will experiment in next game) but as we continue playing last previous games it will be tough. However I don't think SA will win with BP so I predict NZ as champs.

    The Pumas team have been announced, I've added it to the OP.

    Update: The Bok team has also been announced and added to the OP.

    so no real experimentation form either side. argentina continue to thrash their top team, I hope that doesn't come back to bite them. the springboks is the same as last week except the starting and bench front row have swapped?

    Yup.

    And I think the reason being the set pieces. Australia smashed the Argies in the scrums, and when this Springbok front row came on against the AB's they did the same thing to the AB's pack. So my suspicion is that Rassie is going to look at whether this front row can do the same against the Argies from the first set piece and let us build momentum.

    Also I think psychologically Rassie will want to actually win the RC, even though it doesn't mean much in practical terms. So he needs to try and secure a BP win with a strong side.

    If Argentina lose this, they're out of the top 10.
    If Argentina win by 3 tries, they give the wooden spoon to the All Blacks.

    South Africa need a draw to win the Championship. (Checked the rules, LBP is not sufficient)

    The fact that there is even a possibility that the AB’s could take the spoon at this stage is just something I never even imagined would happen.

    Boks don't look too bad, although Faf's kicking game is still really poor.
