Best XV from Opening Weekend of Rugby Championship

Only one try was scored in the opening two fixtures of this year's Rugby Championship, with South Africa the beneficiaries en route to a 13-6 win over Argentina, while New Zealand and Australia drew 12-12 in Sydney.

The heavens opened over both ANZ Stadium and Loftus Versfeld, with wet weather creating miserable circumstances in which none of the Southern Hemisphere's mightiest powers could truly flourish.

As such, the best XV from Saturday's action sees numerous players shifting outside the positions they may have lined up in, with standout performances difficult to come by in certain areas of both matchups.
