Argentina came agonisingly close to snaring just their third Rugby Championship victory when they led South Africa in Nelspruit last weekend, but 17 points in the last nine minutes saw the hosts edge home. The Pumas will be desperate to convert their dominance into a result in the return fixture in Salta on Saturday. Its surely only a matter of time before this wobbly Springbok side sees their luck run out.Team newsArgentinaJoaquin Tuculet, Santiago Cordero, Matias Orlando, Juan Martin Hernandez, Manuel Montero, Nicolas Sanchez, Martin Landajo; Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Agustin Creevy (c), Ramiro Herrera, Matias Alemanno, Tomas Lavanini, Pablo Matera, Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Facundo Isa.Replacements: Julian Montoya, Felipe Arregui, Enrique Pieretto, Guido Petti, Javier Ortega Desio, Tomas Cubelli, Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias, Lucas González AmorosinoPumas coach Daniel Hourcade has named an unchanged XV after the near-miss in Nelspruit a week ago. There is only one change among the replacements, with utility back Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino coming in for Ramiro Moyano.South AfricaJohan Goosen, Ruan Combrink, Lionel Mapoe, Damian de Allende, Bryan Habana, Elton Jantjies, Faf de Klerk; Tendai Mtawarira, Adriaan Strauss (c), Vincent Koch, Eben Etzebeth, Lood de Jager, Francois Louw, Oupa Mahoje, Warren WhiteleyReplacements: Bongi Mbonambi, Steven Kitshoff, Lourens Adriaanse, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Jaco Kriel, Rudy Paige, Morne Steyn, Jesse Kriel.Tendai Mtawarira will equal Os du Randts record as South Africas most-capped prop when he runs out in Salta this weekend. The man whose nickname is The Beast will make his 80th appearance in the famous green jersey, having made his debut back in 2008. Joining him in the front-row is the only new face in the XV, with Vincent Koch coming in for the injured Julian Redelinghuys.Key match-up: Facundo Isa vs. Warren WhitelyThe two No. 8s were key men in last Saturdays opening Rugby Championship tussle. At just 22-years-old, the Argentinian juggernaut Isa looked a dangerous international operator and one that could grace most XVs in world rugby. Opposite him will be Whiteley, South Africas hero in Nelspruit. The Lions captain powered over for the match-winning try, but will be hoping no such dramatics are needed for victory on Saturday.Key stats*South Africa and Argentina have met eight times in the Rugby Championship so far. The Springboks have won six, drawn one, and lost once -- in Durban last year.*Eben Etzebeth is just 24-years-old, but the giant South Africa lock will play in his 26th consecutive Test match this Saturday.*Sixty percent of the South African squad are yet to play a Test in Argentina, while two -- Lourens Adriaanse and Bongi Mbonambi -- have never faced the Pumas before on any territory.WeatherIt should be a cool evening in Salta by kick-off on Saturday, with temperatures of around 17 degrees celsius forecast. There is likely to be a light breeze, but nothing much to trouble the kickers.Unibet oddsUnibet have an Argentina win priced at 27/20, while South Africa are given at 3/5. A draw is priced at 20/1.PredictionSouth Africa are yet to hit their stride under new coach Allister Coetzee and were 10 minutes away from an embarrassing home defeat last weekend. Theyll go to Argentina knowing they have to improve if they are to sneak a win. The Pumas boast some genuine quality in their ranks, with Isa and fly-half Nicolas Sanchez holding their own against the best in the world. If they can take an early lead, home advantage might be enough to see them through.Argentina by six. Henry Ellenson Pistons Jersey .

MINNEAPOLIS -- Dennis Green, the trailblazing coach who led a Minnesota Vikings renaissance in the 1990s before a less successful run with the Arizona Cardinals, has died. He was 67.Greens family posted a message Friday on the Cardinals website announcing the death.His family was by his side and he fought hard, the statement said. It did not disclose other details, though the Cardinals said Green had died of a heart attack.Green was the first black head coach in Big Ten history when he took over at Northwestern in 1981 and was just the third black head coach in the NFL when the Vikings hired him in 1992. Through it all, Green worked hard to provide opportunities for minorities on his coaching staffs and was beloved by his players for the loyalty he showed them.He was one of the forerunners, standard bearers from an African-American standpoint, Vikings COO Kevin Warren said. He was there early and won a lot of football games. He not only got in that position as a head coach, he then hired people and gave them opportunities.Green spent 10 seasons in Minnesota, leading the Vikings to eight playoff appearances and two NFC championship games. He had only one losing season and compiled an overall record of 97-62, a mark second only to Bud Grant in franchise history. That included a 15-1 regular season in 1998 spearheaded by a record-setting offense.They were pretty good when he was here, current Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. Im just trying to get close to him.Green went out on a limb in the draft before that season, taking Randy Moss at No. 21 after the super-talented receiver fell due to character concerns. Moss was a sensation from the start, teaming with Cris Carter, Jake Reed, Randall Cunningham and Robert Smith to give the Vikings the most dynamic and explosive offense the league had ever seen. The Vikings scored a record 556 points that season, a mark that stood until New England broke it in 2007.But the Vikings were upset at home by the Atlanta Falcons that season and also were embarrassed by the New York Giants 41-0 in their other trip to the NFC title game after the 2000 season.Green went 4-8 in the postseason, one of the reasons he was fired by Minnesota late in the 2001 season.Denny made his mark in ways far beyond being an outstanding football coach, the Vikings said. He mentored countless players and served as a father figure for the men he coached. Denny founded the Vikings Community Tuesday Program, a critical initiative that is now implemented across the entire NFL. He took great pride in helping assistant coaches advance their careers. His tenure as one of the first African American head coaches in both college and the NFL was also transformative. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Green family.Smith tweeted: Rest in peace Denny. I lost my mother in April, I feel like I just lost father.Greens leadership was never needed more than during training camp in 2001 when offensive tackkle Korey Stringer collapsed and died from heat illness, but his tenure in Minnesota also was marked by controversy.ddddddddddddHe penned a book in 1997 entitled No Room for Crybabies in which he threatened to sue the ownership group if he didnt obtain an ownership stake. And at the end of the 2001 season, he was ousted with one game left in the season after losing a power struggle with owner Red McCombs.Green finished his three years in Arizona with a 16-32 record. Perhaps his biggest accomplishment with the Cardinals was overseeing the drafting of Larry Fitzgerald as the No. 3 overall pick in 2004. Fitzgerald was a ball boy for Greens Vikings.Of course, many remember Greens final season in Arizona in 2006 for a Monday night loss to Chicago, when the Bears returned two late fumbles and a punt for touchdowns to rally from a 20-point deficit. Afterward, in one of the more memorable postgame rants by an NFL coach, Green pounded the podium and yelled, The Bears are who we thought they were! afterward, a line that would be replayed endlessly over the years.Green was well known for his Denny-isms, unique phrases like Plan your work and work your plan, which he would often say during practice.I still use that `Denny-ism today, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said. Coach Green is going to be missed dearly by everyone that was lucky enough to know him.Green was also an avid drummer, and Moss said on ESPNs NFL Live that we had a team and one thing he taught us was to play to one beat. His legacy will live on.Born Feb. 17, 1949, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Green once said he was struck by watching early Big Ten football games and seeing both Minnesota and Iowa putting together successful seasons behind black quarterbacks. Green enrolled at Iowa, too, and played running back for the Hawkeyes from 1968-70. He played for the BC Lions in Canada in 1971 before returning to coach in college, beginning at Dayton in 1973 and gradually climbing to bigger programs. Green was also a head coach at Stanford and served as an assistant to Bill Walsh on the dominant 49ers teams of the 1980s.All of us at the Cardinals are incredibly saddened by the news of Dennis Greens passing, Cardinals President Michael Bidwell said. Coach Green will rightly be remembered as a true innovator, leader and pioneer among football coaches. We express our deepest sympathy to his family and his many friends.The family asked that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to the Boys and Girls Club of San Diego.He did so much for me, tweeted former coach Tony Dungy, who was a defensive coordinator under Green with the Vikings. Was looking forward to saying thanks at HOF. Tomorrow not promised.---Online:AP NFL website: and Sports Writer Bob Baum in Phoenix contributed to this report.
