The Castle Lager Rugby Championship is an international rugby union competition that features Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. The competition is administered by SANZAAR, the joint venture between the national unions of the four countries. South Africa secured their championship title for the first time since 2009 in 2019, after a series of bonus-point victories over Australia in Johannesburg and Argentina in Pretoria, and a draw against New Zealand in Wellington.
