Boks, Argentina seek to prove potential in Rugby Championship

Warren Whiteley is back in the Springboks fold Siya handled it all very well but there were an awful lot of emotion swirling around

He led South Africa to a 2-1 series win over England in June that sparked talk of a Springboks revival even though the Boks have only won two out of four tests in Erasmus' young reign.

Warren Whiteley and Malcom Marx also return from their respective injuries which kept them out of the June worldwide series against England, while Francois Louw starts at openside with captain Siya Kolisi reverting to a blindside role.

Wildly gifted Stormers utility back Damian Willemse and flank Marco van Staden have been introduced to the bench in a team that sees sweeping changes from the one that did duty in the third Test against England in June.

Argentina will be seeking a similar tonic from their new coach, former global hooker Mario Ledesma, who will take charge of the side for the first time in Durban having replaced Daniel Hourcade at the helm.

Another player he expects to substitute is returning former captain and lock Eben Etzebeth.

Former captain Warren Whiteley starts at No 8‚ current captain Siya Kolisi at seven and Francois Louw is in the fetcher's role at six.

If South Africa can provide an improving Argentina, defending champions New Zealand and Australia with much sterner tests on the road, Habana will be far more confident in their standing among the tier one nations.

Rishabh Pant dismissed by Stuart Broad
In the second Test, they were outplayed by an innings and 159 runs at Lord's, succumbing within three days. It was only the second time Kohli was dismissed in 90s in his Test career.

"Then with Sbu Nkosi out, Mapimpi was competing hard with Lwazi Mvovo for that spot, but we think he is ready for Championship rugby".

"When I was in Ireland", Erasmus explained. "I can understand why the hype is there".

"The challenge will be pressure and expectation", Erasmus said, "but if he gets through that he is a talent and maybe he can do it for us at the World Cup as a utility player".

He is likely to get his first cap as a substitute on Saturday.

"So the Rugby Championship will be a bit of a marker in terms of where they're heading and I think there's a lot of positivity, but I think one can only evaluate and make some clearer indications post the Rugby Championship".
