Bath Rugby teammates on opposing sides in Rugby Championship

Bath Rugby teammates Francois Louw and Horacio Agulla will once again be coming up against each other this weekend when their respective international sides, South Africa and Argentina, clash in Salta on Saturday.

Louw, who was named Man of the Match in the fixture between the two sides a weekend ago, is once more named to start in the Springbok back row, whilst Agulla is named on the bench for Los Pumas.

"We're looking forward to the challenge," Springbok Head Coach Heyneke Meyer said. "Although we were happy with the result in Pretoria, we were not happy with the performance and this is an opportunity to show improvement against a tough opponent away from home."
