Erasmus bemoans wasted opportunities at Twickenham

The Springboks’ failure to finish off their opportunities and some ill-discipline, which resulted in crucial penalties for England, cost them the match at Twickenham on Saturday, according to Rassie Erasmus, the SA Rugby Director of Rugby.

England edged South Africa 12-11 in a tightly fought battle played before a capacity crowd in London. The home side’s flyhalf and co-captain, Owen Farrell, deliverd a flawless goal kicking display and slotted three penalties, while Elliot Daly (fullback) was on target with a long-range penalty.


Springbok training squad named for Stellenbosch camp

The majority of the squad players have already assembled on Sunday for camp, which will last for a week before they depart in two groups to London next Saturday. Overseas-based players and those involved in the 2018 Currie Cup Final, sponsored by Nashua and DirectAxis Financial Services, were not considered for the Stellenbosch camp.
