Boks to face Pumas in Buenos Aires

The Springboks will play Argentina at the Vélez Sarsfield stadium in Buenos Aires on 15 August.

With the Rugby Championship set to kick off this Friday, the Argentina Rugby Union (UAR) confirmed on Monday that its final home game against the Boks will be played at Vélez Sarsfield.

The stadium is situated in the west of the Argentine capital and has previously hosted 27 Tests, the most recent of which was England's victory over Los Pumas in June 2013

The Springboks have visited the stadium on two occasions, posting a 39-7 win in December 2004 and a 34-23 win in November 2005, while Los Pumas have an 11-15-1 record since the venue's first Test in 1986.
