Cape Town - The Springboks will continue on their winning way when they tackle Argentina in their Rugby Championship Test in Salta on Saturday, local bookmakers believe.
The Springboks started their tournament campaign on a high note when they beat Los Pumas 37-15 in Port Elizabeth last weekend.
The Boks are unbeaten in four Tests this year, having beaten France 3-0 in their June series, and according to Sportingbet.co.za, that trend is set to continue on Saturday.
The bookmakers have predicted an 8-point victory for Allister Coetzee’s charges in Salta.
In 25 Tests played between the nations since 1993, the Boks have won 22, lost two and drawn one.
In Rugby Championship action since Argentina joined the competition in 2012, the teams have played 10 Tests, with South Africa winning seven, losing two and sharing the spoils once.
Los Pumas will however be buoyed by the fact that they beat the Boks 26-24 in Salta last year.
Kick-off for Saturday's clash is scheduled for 21:40 (SA time).
