Soweto - Springbok captain Jean de Villiers played down his team’s massive 73-13 victory over Argentina in their opening Rugby Championship match at FNB Stadium on Saturday night, saying the Boks “still have a lot to work on.”

But De Villiers was circumspect, especially as the Boks head to Mendoza this week for their first of three away games - something that will determine just how well they do in the Rugby Championship.

Its now up to the Boks to back it up in the coming weeks.
