24-09-2021 Daily Prediction Rugby Championship South Africa vs Argentina

South Africa will be in the favourable position of knowing exactly what’s needed when their match against Argentina kicks off. The home side will be looking for a great favour from their rivals Australia as they need them to somehow beat the All Blacks at fortress Eden Park. If the Aussies do manage to upset NZ then all the Boks need is a win or win or even a draw to clinch the title. A NZ win and a Bok’s bonus point win will also be enough for the home team in this match. The most complicated situation will arise if the All Blacks win with a bonus point, then points differential could decide the title winner.  

TIP: Argentina would have had high hopes of beating the Springboks last week in their home fixture but they were blown away by the Boks power game. The Pumas will be targeting veteran Frans Steyn who has been thrust into the flyhalf position due to injuries to Handre Pollard and Damian Willemse. It has been many years since Steyn played at 10 so he could be vulnerable especially early in the game. The bookies have the Boks as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.12, Playabets 1.10 and Sunbet 1.11


Springboks vs Argentina

  • The Springboks have won the last five matches against Argentina.
  • Argentina have only won one of the last nine matches against the Springboks.

Latest results for both teams

South Africa beat Argentina 36-20 in the last match.


The Pumas will want nothing better than to get a Springbok scalp on their home soil to go with their first ever win over NZ away from home earlier in the competition. If they can pull it off this will be their best ever Rugby Championship. The Boks will not want to be distracted about the permutations of them winning the title but they would rather focus on just winning the match first. They will again rely on their powerful scrum and lineout to gain them the ascendancy in the set piece. If the Boks can turn their possession into points then I am predicting a home win by more than 20 points.
