Springboks coach has cautioned the Boks ahead of their 2023 Rugby World Cup showdown with All Blacks.
The epic Rugby World Cup will be played at the Stade de France on Saturday, 28 October. Both sides have been bullish in their campaigns, and the last dance will make a difference.Springboks coach Jacques Nienaber said ahead of the clash: “It’s a final, so it’s going to be tight. If you look at their last few games, they are in excellent form, and we will have to be at our very best on Saturday.”
No doubt Springboks coach Jacques Nienaber’s comments ahead of the All Blacks clash have gained thousands of reactions since they dropped on Instagram. Mzansi has since flooded social media with their two cents in the backdrop of the post.
@esihlendleleni commented: “We believe in you, nhe, but please believe in yourselves as well. I don’t know if I’m seeing things, but ingathi, you sometimes lack confidence during the match and then nitatazele kengoku. You know what you need to do. You’ve done it before. Zithembeni mahn 💪🏽.”
@papa_wa_aro posted: “Big match temperament!! We trust in you guys. Let the nerves remain in the tunnel and bring guts and glory onto the field!!.”
RECORDS TO TUMBLE AT THE RWC FINAL
No doubt records will tumble at Stade de France on 28 October when two triple champions square off. Heading into an epic encounter, the Springboks haven’t lost in a final, and if they manage to win, they will become the second side to win back-to-back titles.
On the other hand, All Blacks’ win over Argentina saw them reach their record fifth final appearance. However, one of their defeats was in the hands of the Springboks during the 1995 final.
However, Will Jordan might go down in the history books of World Cup Rugby if he manages to score a try in the epic encounter. Jordan is one try away to become the first player to score nine tries in a single men’s tournament.
