Live Streaming Argentina vs South Africa: How to Watch Rugby Championship Match Online and on TV?

Argentina is hosting South Africa in the fifth round of the 2022 rugby championship.

New Zealand’s wild victory over Australia on Thursday secured Ian Foster’s side first in the table, but either side would equal the bonus points win.

South Africa has endured the turmoil off the pitch ever since it got back on track, beating Australia two weekends ago and half Elton Jantjies was sent home from the camp.

A pitch deemed unsuitable for the rugby test forced the relocation of the match from the Jose Amalfitani Stadium in Buenos Aires to the nearby port city of Avellaneda.

Here’s everything you need to know before playing.

When is Argentina vs South Africa?

Argentina vs. South Africa kicks off Saturday 17 September at 20:10 BST at the Estadio Libertadores de América in Avellaneda, Buenos Aires.

How can I watch it?

UK viewers can watch the Rugby Championship live on the Sky Sports Arena from 20:00 BST. Subscribers can stream the game via the Sky Go app.

Team news

Argentina made seven changes to the team that were beaten by New Zealand two weeks ago. Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro and Eduardo Bello make a new pair of supports, with Matias Alemanno and Juan Martin Gonzalez returning to the start in the second and second row respectively. Gonzalo Bertranou replaced Tomas Cubelli at the halfway point of the scrum, once again fit Jeronimo de la Fuente returns to midfield and Lucio Cinti starts on the wing. Assuming the prostitute is used from the bench, Agustin Creevy will surpass Nicolas Sanchez as Argentina’s most successful footballer of all time.

South Africa’s starting fifteen remained unchanged after the victory in Sydney. Canan Moodie, who made his debut in the Australian winning scorer, jumps on the wing for the second time, while Damian Willemse continues halfway with Elton Jantjies sent home for disciplinary reasons. Faf de Klerk returns to the bench alongside Andre Esterhuizen and Elrigh Louw, and Jacques Nienaber again favors the conventional 5-3 split among his substitutes.
