What the Boks learnt out of the Loftus quagmire (Audio)

Francois Louw was one of the few Springboks to cope decently with the treacherous conditions that so clearly affected the side during a rather poor 13-6 win over Argentina in both sides' Rugby Championship opener.

The nifty ball poacher is constantly facing these type of conditions back in England, where he plays for Bath but clearly doesn’t want to be seen as an exception.

With a tough trip to Argentina this week on the cards, Louw also feels South Africa shouldn’t focus too much on their past difficulties in South America.
