Four things we want to see from the Springboks in the second Welsh test



The Springboks will play Wales in the second Test of their three-game streak at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Saturday afternoon (starting at 5:05 p.m.), looking to seal the streak while the visitors want to keep it.

Here are four things we would like to see from the hosts in the match.

Selection confirmation

A lot has been done because of the Springbok management’s decision to make 14 roster changes and 19 match-23 changes.

Local pundits defended the decision, pointing out the immense depth of the Boxing team, while foreign pundits argued that the decision diluted the series and was disrespectful to Wales.

The proof will be the result at the end of the day, but the wingers of Bok will be desperate to justify the trust shown by the management team and reward it with a positive result.

Exciting free trio

The Boks have named a very exciting trio for the game against Wales, which saw the debut of rising star Evan Roos. Marcel Coetzy deservedly returned to the national team, and Peter-Stef du Toit recovered from injury.

Each of the three will be looking to put on a good game for different reasons, and Bock fans will be looking to see what they can do together.

They are a formidable loose trio and with the likes of Deon Fury on the bench, Wales could find themselves in a hot post-melt period.

The return of Moody Pollard

Airport of first choice Khandre Pollard He had a disappointing international season in 2021, battling for consistent form while his shots on goal were wayward, missing several vital shots that cost matches throughout the season.

He has also had injury problems this year but has been playing for his club Montpellier towards the end of their French campaign in which he won the top 14 and will look to build on this in his first international start in 2022.

Fans will also be looking forward to Pollard’s return to top form, especially after Elton Junjies struggled to get the job done last weekend.

Great efforts of an inexperienced sapper

The famous Bokov bomb squad has been integral to getting the team out of extremely difficult situations over the past few years.

They managed to turn losing situations into winning ones, and so Bok’s bench became an important part of their game plan.

However, there are plenty of inexperienced players on the bench this weekend who will have to live up to the high expectations of the sappers somehow.

Ntutuko Mchunu, Rouen Nortier, Deon Fourier and Grant Williams are ready to debut, while Reinhardt Elstadt has only three matches. Thus, a lot will fall on the shoulders of Damian Willems (17 games), Malcolm Marks (47 games) and Vincent Koch (32 games).
