South Africa vs Argentina live stream: how to watch Rugby Championship game from anywhere

They might not be pretty but they're certainly effective, having bulldozed their way to glory at the last Rugby Championship, the World Cup, the bad-tempered recent Lions series - and the top of the World Rugby rankings. Now the Springboks return to the Rugby Championship fold after a year away, kicking their campaign off against Los Pumas, who gave New Zealand and Australia a run for their money last year. Read on as our guide explains how to watch a South Africa vs Argentina live stream for the 2021 Rugby Championship from anywhere in the world.

The main concern for Rassie Erasmus - sorry, Jacques Nienaber - is whether Siya Kolisi, Eben Etzebeth and his warriors will have enough in the tank after a draining Lions series. It's also been confirmed that Pieter-Steph du Toit is out of action for the foreseeable future, having undergone shoulder surgery.

There's no doubting that Argentina are the whipping boys of the tournament, but they've been much improved in recent years, and in fact only lost once during the 2020 Tri Nations series. They also warmed up with a highly promising win and draw against Six Nations champions Wales - albeit a weakened Wales - with flanker Pablo Matera running riot.

Can Mario Ledesma's side ruin the Springboks' welcoming party? Follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get a South Africa vs Argentina live stream of the Rugby Championship game wherever you are right now.


How to live stream New Zealand vs Australia from outside your country

If you're outside your country of residence - whether that be the UK or anywhere else - and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you'll soon discover that you can't, as it's location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.

By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream - assuming you comply with the broadcaster's fine print, of course - specifically its terms and conditions.
