Watch how the new laws have revived Argentina's scrum, as they take on the Boks.

Johannesburg - The cohesion and endurance of a pack would now be the most important factors under the new scrum laws to be used in the Rugby Championship, Springbok scrum coach Pieter de Villiers said on Tuesday.

"It's going to be a learning process for players worldwide who have practised their trade over the last 10 years with the 'hit' scrum and it's a big change," De Villiers said.

Pat Lambie, Ruan Pienaar and Jano Vermaak are the other scrumhalves in the squad.
