So, I entered a discussion with a work colleague and I put forward who I think will win. Surprisingly, I’d love for the Springboks to win but few they’ll fall short. I’ve put either New Zealand or Ireland to lift the cup. I think of all the nations, we’ve certainly come a long way to be in the position we are (both in terms of momentum, number of options we have for different positions and fitness levels). I’m a little scared though by this pedestal that the Springboks have been put on (media, other fans etc), so I’m a little worried going into this cup by the pressure the boys will be under. What’s everyone else’s take on the Springbok chances? Anyone think we’ll do it? Anyone thing we’ll (as our cricket team is famous for) choke? Will be interesting to see what others think as around a year/year and a half we were is disarray.
