During their tour on Argentina, the Boks stayed at Belgrano Athletic Club. They played their last match v Gimnasia y Esgrima (BA), the Argentine league champion. After the match, captain J. Nykamp praised the performance of the team, stating that "Gimnasia y Esgrima did not give us a moment of truce and we had to appeal to all our resources to impose."[2]

This tour started a long relationship between the two federations.[3]
