JUAN MABROMATA /AFP

South Africa have catapulted themselves to the summit of the Rugby Championship with a comprehensive win over Argentina in Buenos Aires.

The Springboks were buoyed by tries from Jaden Hendrikse, Damian De Allende, and a double from Malcolm Marx as they secured a bonus point.

The 36-20 win takes them above New Zealand with one round of matches left.

"To come here is very hard," said South Africa captain Siya Kolisi. "Argentines are very passionate people and they take pride in their rugby. For us to get a bonus point was special."
