Match Commentary

81'34-21 End of second half
80'Much to admire about the Boks today. They've done many things well. As is the way, they have much to work on also before the return leg at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas in Mendoza next week. Winning start is the best start. Pumas also shaped well in parts, and they were value for their halftime advantage, but they were clearly second best in the second stanza.
80'Substitute on - Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias , Argentina
