Springboks add Argentina test to tour
April 12, 2000

The Springboks will play four Tests on an end-of-year tour of Argentina, Ireland and Britain, bringing to 12 the number of internationals they will play during a gruelling season.

The South African Rugby Football Union on Tuesday announced the dates of the team's final tour, with Tests against Argentina in Buenos Aires on November 11, against Ireland in Dublin on November 18, Wales in Cardiff on November 25 and England in London on December 2.

Four midweek matches with venues and opponents have yet to be finalised.
