The Rugby Championship logo 2013

In 2013, Argentina makes its entrance into the Rugby Championship an extended competition previously coined the Tri-Nations. It has taken 5 years since their bronze medal placing in the 2008 Rugby World Cup to be invited into this premium annual competition, but Argentina has now taken its place amongst rugby’s giants of Southern Hemisphere Rugby - Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, who make up the other nations of the Rugby Championship.

The Rugby Championship is arguably the best rugby competition in the world, after the Rugby World Cup. Consistent Southern Hemisphere dominance against northern rivals have highlighted the talent and power of these teams, making the Rugby Championship a true battle of the ‘Greats’.

The Rugby Championship has evolved from an epic history of matches which previously saw just South Africa, Australia and New Zealand competing for the Tri Nations trophy. The Tri Nations was born in 1995 when South Africa joined Australia and New Zealand who had been playing each other since their first ever test match in 1903.

Australia, New Zealand and South Africa alone have won 6 out of the 7 previous Rugby World Cups and now they are reunited for the Rugby Championship 2013 and ready to welcome Argentina's Pumas whom are bound to add some spice as it becomes a rugby competition of four nations.

The Pumas of Argentina will host their home games in three venues across the country - Mendoza, La Plata (Buenos Aires) and Rosario. The first game will be Argentina V South Africa's Springboks which will take place on the 24th August 2013 in Mendoza. The second game will take place on the 28th September in La Plata, Buenos Aires with the Pumas V New Zealand All Blacks. The final home game takes place in Rosario for the Pumas V Australia Wallabies, on the 5th October.
