Two squads featuring a number of changes will get the 2016 Rugby Championship underway, when South Africa host Argentina at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit on Saturday.

Neither side is a favourite for this year's tournament, one set to be dominated by mighty New Zealand. Yet, it would still be foolish to dismiss South African and Argentinian hopes.

Date: Saturday, August 20

Time: 4:05 p.m. (BST)

Instead, it will be the style of play Coetzee favours. Specifically, how expansive and attack-minded he allows his players to be.
