DURBAN, South Africa : Argentina captain Julian Montoya says his side have to learn from their errors if they are to move forward as a team and bemoaned their poor discipline in their 38-21 Rugby Championship loss to South Africa in Durban on Saturday.

They rattled the Springboks in the second half and the scoreline perhaps flattered the hosts but 22 penalties conceded, four yellow cards and two penalty tries tell the story of Argentina wilting under pressure. "We can’t give away easy penalties and due to the accumulation of penalties we end up with yellow cards. We have to not just say we must improve but do it.

The hooker felt it was a missed opportunity in Durban with his side within three points of the Boks into the final quarter of the game.
