Argentina captain Agustín Creevy is targeting revenge against South Africa after his men's narrow defeat in Pretoria.

A far cry from the 73-13 thrashing suffered by Argentina in 2013, Creevy's team pushed the Springboks all the way in horrendous conditions at Loftus.

Enjoying the upper hand in the scrum, Creevy underlined the dissatisfaction with the result after coming so close to a first ever win over South Africa.

"We are not happy, because we couldn't get a try [in the dying minutes] and because we lost," said Creevy.

"We are a group that works hard and will make the sacrifices we need to the revenge in Salta.

"We [the pack] became stronger and the backs also produced a great match, but we are still disappointed - because we wanted to win.

Creevy revealed how his time vowed not to be beaten in the same manner as 2013 following Ruan Pienaar's early try.

"When they scored that early try [when scrum-half Ruan Pienaar went over in the second minute], we got together under the uprights and said to each other we will not capitulate like last year," added Creevy.

"We managed to get [ourselves] up and gave them good fight.

"We demonstrate that we are on their level and it was a nice game, but we wanted to win and we were not going to sit back now.

"We know that they will come better prepared for the rematch in Salta, but we'll have our people supporting us and hope to make a better contest and perhaps get the win."
