1993 — The Springboks take on Argentina for the first time, playing in Buenos Aires, and they are forced to hold on for a 29-26 victory. Winger James Small scored two of SA’s four tries in the first half as the visitors built up a 29-10 lead, but they were unable to add another point in the second half.
2004 — The Springboks score four tries as they edge Wales 38-36 in the opening match of their end-of-year tour. Substitute Jean de Villiers, fullback Percy Montgomery, flyhalf Jaco van der Westhuyzen and eighthman Joe van Niekerk dotted down for SA.
2010 — Flyhalf Pat Lambie makes his international debut against Ireland at Lansdowne Road in Dublin, helping the Springboks to a narrow 23-21 win. He came on as a substitute and minutes later delivered a crucial pass that led to a try by Gio Aplon. Lambie added the conversion to give SA a 23-9 lead. The Irish hit back with two late tries, but only one was converted.
