South Africa had had a great start to Rugby Championship with two categorical victories against The Pumas, but Australia cut that streak. By the 3rd date, the Wallabies They beat him 28-26 and by the 4th the wallaby victory by 30-17 was categorical. Now the selected one who directs Jacques nienaber will seek to recover if he wants to continue in the race and is measured against All blacks on Townsville, on Saturday at 3.50 live on STAR +.
Jacques Nienaber bets on experience for the match against New Zealand. The two modifications are in the pack of forwards where it returns to include two players that already used during the competition.
For one thing, Lood de Jager who recovered from a blow to the head will be in Marvin Orie’s place. And Kwagga Smith will play as third row in replacement of Franco Mostert. In addition, Elton Jantjies and Frans Steyn will be on the bench again.
To dream of the Rugby Championship title, the Springboks must beat the All Blacks, get an offensive bonus point and that New Zealand does not get a defensive bonus.
