Cape Town - The Springboks made countless errors in their stuttering 30-23 Rugby Championship win over Argentina in Nelspruit at the weekend.

But the most comical of those errors came early in the second half when flyhalf Elton Jantjies, trying to clear from his own goal-line, booted the ball straight into the face of skipper Adriaan Strauss, giving Argentina a five-metre scrum.

Credit must be given to Strauss who miraculously remained standing after he was 'falconed' his own player!
