Cape Town - The Springboks will face Argentina in the Bronze Final of the 2015 Rugby World Cup at London's Olympic Park next Friday (22:00 SA time).

This follows Argentina's 29-15 semi-final defeat to Australia at Twickenham on Sunday.

The Springboks lost 20-18 to New Zealand in Saturday's semi-final at Twickenham and will have to beat Los Pumas to avoid a third defeat at this year's tournament.

Two-time World Cup winners South Africa featured in the third-place playoff match at the 1999 World Cup, when they beat the All Blacks 22-18 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

Saturday's final between Australia and New Zealand at Twickenham is scheduled for 18:00 (SA time).
