Argentina rugby experienced a major boost during Argentina’s first year in the Rugby Championship. But nonetheless, a victory during this year could boost the interest levels off the scale. Their debut in 2012 was rather impressive with two narrow losses to Australia and a draw with the Springboks. They participated in The Rugby Championship against New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. The Pumas played their first match against South Africa and lost 27-6. Argentina rugby team had a draw the next week in Mendoza to achieve a 16-16. This was their best result ever against Springbok.
