We have to point the fingers to ourselves, firstly as coaches and then as players, and we will have to fix it.”He refused to blame travel, saying instead that they looked fine fitness wise in the second half. “We travelled a day later and in the second half we outplayed them because we were the fresher team. We were playing better rugby in the second half but we just didn’t make use of our opportunities.“I’m not going to look for positives after a performance like that. We have no excuses, we knew exactly what to expect, we prepared for it but we just didn’t handle it,” added Erasmus.Argentina outscored the Springboks by four tries to three, with flyhalf Sanchez instrumental with his 17 points from a try, three conversions, a penalty and a drop goal.The Argentina win breaks their 11-match losing streak in the Rugby Championship, and certainly messes with the Springbok plans of experimenting for their next Test, against Australia in Brisbane.“All victories are sweet, but this one was particularly satisfying,” said bloodied hooker Creevy.“We faced a powerful Springboks team and we won — that is special. We took a big step forward from last weekend when we lost in Durban.“The team learnt from the mistakes made in South Africa. We attacked brilliantly in the first half and defended equally brilliantly in the second half.” Argentina next travel to New Zealand to take on the All Blacks, also on 8 sanzaarADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
