Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer says that his team let South Africa and themsleves down after they drew with Rugby Championship newcomers Argentina 16-all.
The draw is Meyer's second draw in five matches after the Springboks also drew with England in June.
Meyer's Springboks were trailing 13-3 and let Argentina go out to 16-6 before they staged a comeback with a fortunate charge down try by Frans Steyn.
Fly half Morne Steyn who enjoyed great form last weekend did not enjoy the same form this weekend and missed the opportunity win the match with a penalty 6 minutes from full time.
Meyer said that they will have some tough decisions to make before their next match which is against Australia in Perth on September the 8th.
"We have let our country and ourselves down. Unacceptable." said Meyer.
"Very disappointed, we were not good enough.
Meyer added that the, "Youngsters need to step-up" and that, "We need to adapt", after the Springboks appeared to have no Plan B.
"We will have to make hard decisions before we play Australia away from home."
South Africa skipper Jean de Villiers said: "We have only ourselves to blame as there were scoring opportunities wasted."
"Once again I have to admit that we must take a long, hard look at our individual displays.
"Australia away is going to be a different story and we must cut out the niggly stuff that marred our performance," added De Villiers.
"We got too involved with the niggly stuff, some hard work lies ahead for us,"
"We can only blame ourselves, as we did not use our opportunities."
Argentina captain Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe said that he was disappointed at the way they let the match slip through their hands.
"There was a massive improvement from Cape Town so I am disappointed that we did not win and this match demonstrated how fine a line there is between winning and drawing," said Fernandez Lobbe.
"We wanted so badly to win before our supporters and it was an awesome occasion - being the first Pumas team to play at home in this Championship is something we will remember with pride for the rest of our lives."
