Springboks’ have found themselves needing to approach each match like a knock out game after their seismic loss against Japan in the Opening Game of their Rugby World Cup Campaign.
And now with two days to go before their third place play off against ARG in their last test of the season.
Springbok defence coach John McFarland has warned the players play with the right attitude in order to and avoid facing a second humiliating defeat at the hands of Argentina in the same year.
The Boks were given two days off away from rugby to process their heartbreaking 20-18 loss to the All Blacks at Twickenham in an effort by the technical team to help them find this right frame of mind when they get to the Olympic Stadium in London.
While the idea of losing twice to Argentina in the same year is simply unthinkable, the Pumas have improved immensely during this tournament and are one of the tournament darlings.
The Boks who had their first training session this afternoon will name the team later in the evening.
