Boks will bring it home!

Springboks all pumped up after the national anthems during their 19-16 win against Wales.

This Saturday, we play in the biggest match of the season against England in the finals of the Rugby World Cup in Japan. Reaching the finals is obviously a massive achievement for us, but our mission is not over yet. It has been a two-year process to get to this final 80 minutes.

We are all putting 200% extra effort this week to make sure that we are ready for anything and everything. The boys are working hard and the coaching staff is doing just the same. We have two training sessions left, every day counts towards our performance in this one game.

There is a lot of excitement in the camp which is good.

We understand that England is pumped up after beating and kicking New Zealand out of the competition, but so are we. Making the final of the World Cup is extremely special, it can go either way but we are on a winning streak.

I cannot say if there will be any changes to the team that played Wales this past weekend. When you are winning, you don’t change much of the team because clearly it is working.
