NOT LOVELY AT LOFTUS
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.
