Happy enough apart from at center. Would've liked to see Esterhuizen and Am as a combo outside of Williams and Libbok.
Agreed, feel the same. Really like the attack options in the backline, just not really sure on the centers. Loose forwards look decent and I'm intrigued to see how that lock pairing goes.

15 Juan Cruz Mallia, 14 Mateo Carreras, 13 Lucio Cinti, 12 Santiago Chocobares, 11 Juan Imhoff, 10 Santiago Carreras, 9 Lautaro Bazan Velez, 8 Juan Martin Gonzalez, 7 Santiago Grondona, 6 Pablo Matera, 5 Tomas Lavanini, 4 Lucas Paulos, 3 Francisco Gomez Kodela, 2 Julian Montoya (captain), 1 Thomas Gallo

Such a shame where Ellis Park is located. This game should've been a sell out.
What is this random introduction of dignitaries in between the national anthems? Ugh
Bok forwards utterly dominant. Argentina no chance.
No go forward, proceeds to take the scrum back 5 meters where it has come from…
Can't be missing those.

Edit: Pumas just seem to be running into a Bok brick wall.
