NOT LOVELY AT LOF­TUS

Finweek English Edition - - LIFESTYLE -

SPRING­BOK CAP­TAIN Jean de Vil­liers de­scribed the Spring­bok vs Ar­gentina game at Lof­tus as prob­a­bly the worst con­di­tions he has ever played in.

The Boks beat the hail and heavy rain to labour to a 13-6 win over Ar­gentina in their open­ing game of the Cas- tle Cham­pi­onship.

It wasn’t pretty and the Boks will have learned a few hard lessons from the un­pre­dictable weather but full credit to the phys­i­cal Pu­mas.

Now for the re­turn match in Buenos Aires and the Boks will be with­out Wil- lem Al­berts due to a ham­string strain.

Golden Lions cap­tain War­ren White­ley has been drafted into the squad for the tour to Ar­gentina.

Cur­rie Cup scores: Sharks 34-17 Pu­mas, Chee­tahs 34-27 Gri­quas, Lions 60-19 EP Kings, WP 41-17 Bulls.
