The Rugby championship enters its second weekend of action after a pulsating round one that saw South Africa sit atop the table standings after the dust had settled, having claimed victory against Australia : 35-17.
The All Blacks were able to endure a tough game against the Los Pumas in Buenos Aires where they held on for a crucial win against a much improved Argentina side : 20-16.
The Springboks got their first win of this year’s campaign in fashionable manner against a mediocre Wallabies team enroute to claiming maximum points despite the fact that they rested several star options in the form of Steven Kitshoff, Frans Mostert, Faf De Klerk, Duane Vermuelen, Handre Pollard and Lukhanyo Am who were all left to prepare for this weekend’s blockbuster versus New Zealand.
The line ups for the various teams are out as they prepare to battle in round two but what has caught the eye of many is the much anticipated double fly half combo that sees the impressive Richie Mounga don shirt number #10 whereas senior fly half Beauden Barret wears the #15 jersey in what most rugby die-hards think will be the way the All Blacks line up come the Rugby World cup.
