To win the Rugby Championship, the Springboks must beat Los Pumas by 39+ points & score at least three more tries than their visitors for a bonus point. If the Boks get a bonus win & match New Zealand on 19 points, points difference (PD) is the tiebreaker. If PD is also level, the Boks win on head-to-head PD, having beaten New Zealand by a greater margin in their opening fixture than the All Blacks beat them in their second.
