RUGBY. World champions Springboks will break a new record against Ireland

Published on

At our level, whether we're talking more insistently about the Blues' tour of Argentina or the thrilling Test series between the All Blacks and England, let's face it, the summer matches are mostly played in South Africa.

Because a series of meetings between the reigning world champions and the winner of the 6 Nations tournament doesn't happen every morning. Moreover, the first match last week lived up to its promise, a 27 to 20 victory for the Boks.

Video. “The best version ever heard”, KB Motsilanyane electrified the fans by singing the national anthem.

The encounter was tough, the fight was fierce and ultimately South Africa prevailed, thanks in particular to the iron scrum, their keen wings and their opponent's mistakes.

Raze Erasmus has assembled the most experienced squad in Springboks history, ready for revenge and aware of the challenge facing an injured but slightly depleted Ireland.

In total, the selection clock will display 990 selections, an average of 66 caps per player. Elected 120 times, Eben Etzebeth is the boy who contributed the most to this crazy look.

Note that experience isn't everything, as in the young Blues' win against the Pumas last Saturday, with some elements such as Grant Williams or Sacha Ngomezulu bringing their enthusiasm to the bench. Not forgetting RG Snyman's brilliance.

On the opposite side, Ireland will still be without Jamison Gibson-Park, while Dan Sheehan is on the injured list.
