South Africa vs. Argentina: Winners and Losers from Rugby Championship

It wasn't the demolition that many expected, but South Africa will be happy nonetheless to have opened their 2014 Rugby Championship campaign with a 13-6 win over Argentina on Saturday. 

Heyneke Meyer's men struggled to pose the attacking threat of more recent results, the conditions in Pretoria resulting in the scrappiest of victories.

Daniel Hourcade may have taken a losing bonus point prior to kickoff, but the Pumas at times looked as though they might shock the odds and take the win themselves at Loftus Versfeld.

Both teams will take a variety of lessons from the fixture, having both the good and bad to take note of before next week's matchups, the biggest of which are discussed ahead.
