  • Argentina 31 South Africa 33

  • Argentina are throwing everything into it in a bid to win this game! They are on the attack inside South Africa's half but Hernandez throws a wayward pass into touch! Referee Steve Walsh blows the final whistle and the Boks have got out of jail to win this clash! The Pumas were in control for large periods and will wonder how they lost that game.

  • PENALTY, SOUTH AFRICA, STEYN! 31-33. Steyn adds another three-pointer, which puts the Boks into the lead again, after Matera is pinged for a ruck infringement.

  • PENALTY, ARGENTINA, BOSCH! 31-30. Marcelo Bosch lands a penalty from about 52 metres, after Bakkies Botha is penalised for a late tackle on Leguizam�n!

  • Steyn gathers from Francois Hougaard at a scrum close to the halfway line. He launches a teasing bomb but Tuculet gathers despite great pressure from Hendricks.

  • CONVERSION, SOUTH AFRICA, STEYN! 30-28. Steyn puts the Boks back in front with a sweetly-struck place-kick!

  • TRY, SOUTH AFRICA, COETZEE! 28-28. The Boks launch a drive from a line-out inside Argentina's 22. Marcell Coetzee is in control at the base of the maul and when he spots the whitewash, he dives over!

  • The Boks are now camped inside the Pumas' 22! Malherbe and Louw are prominent ball carriers.

  • Argentina take the ball through a couple of phases and Sanchez drops into the pocket again, but this time his drop-goal attempt is to the left of the posts!

  • After several re-set scrums, Frans Malherbe is pinged for dropping his bind inside Argentina's 22. Hernandez puts the resulting penalty out on the Boks' 10-metre line.

  • CONVERSION, SOUTH AFRICA, STEYN! 28-23. Morne Steyn adds the extras to narrow the gap to five points!

  • TRY, SOUTH AFRICA, HENDRICKS! 28-21. The Boks attack inside Argentina's 22 and Cornal Hendricks runs onto a pass from De Villiers and beats a defender before diving in at the right-hand corner!

  • Hernandez shows his unique talent when he launches a 35 metre banana kick, from just outside his 22. The ball bounces infield but rolls into touch in front of Habana!

  • PENALTY, ARGENTINA, SANCHEZ. 28-16. Sanchez gives the Pumas a 12-point lead, after Francois Louw is pinged for a ruck infringement. The Boks look shell-shocked!

  • Argentina are in control at the moment! Everything they do seems to be going right while the reverse is true for the Boks. Sanchez sees a gap and delivers a perfectly-weighted kick which rolls into touch inside the visitors' 22.

  • TRY, ARGENTINA, TUCULET! 25-16. Joaqu�n Tuculet runs onto a pass from Hernandez, on the edge of the Boks' 22, and dives in at the corner despite the attentions of Damian de Allende and Jean de Villiers!

  • CONVERSION, ARGENTINA, SANCHEZ. 20-16. Sanchez slots the to-pointer to extend his side's lead!

  • TRY, ARGENTINA, CUBELLI! 18-16. Tom�s Cubelli

  • Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer has replaced his two props and brought on Tendai Mtawarira and Frans Malherbe.

  • The Boks have just been annihilated at a scrum, just outside the Pumas' 22! Jannie du Plessis and Gurthr� Steenkamp eventually pop out of the set-piece and the Boks are penalised. Sanchez kicks for touch and puts the ball out, just inside the visitors' half.
