Springboks Motivated for a Win against Wales

Eben Etzebeth will become the youngest Springbok in history to earn his 100th Test cap when he takes the field at the DHL Stadium in Cape Town for the final Castle Lager Incoming Series match against Wales today.

Neither team is expected to budge an inch with Wales desperate to secure their first series win in South Africa.

Captain, Kolisi said he was satisfied with the team’s preparation for the match and they have been working hard to improve the areas of their game that let them down last week.

“Wales are a tough team; they don’t stop playing for 80 minutes, but we are looking forward to this weekend,” said Kolisi.
