On Saturday, the Springboks will face off against the All Blacks and they have Mzansi's support. The boys in green are also backed by their lovely wives and we took a look at who some of them are.
South Africans are excited about the official kick-off of the 2019 Rugby World Cup on Friday. Springboks rugby fans have already shown their unwavering support for the boys in green.
A handful of ladies will join the millions of South Africans supporting the Boks - their wives. In honour of the Springboks, Briefly.co.za took a look at some the wives who support them.
1. Rachel Kolisi
Rachel is the wife of the Springbok captain, Siya Kolisi. The couple tied the knot in 2016. The couple's relationship has been more in the spotlight than the normal rugby player's marriage.
2. Kuziva Mtawarira
Kuziva is the Zimbabwean-born wife of Tendai "Beast" Mtawarira. The couple tied the knot in 2010 and the Springbok Prop took to Instagram to share a touching anniversary post.
He captained the post:
"Happy ninth year Anniversary my Queen @kuzybaby1. Doing life with you is such a privilege and SOOOO much fun. Thank you for being the most caring, loving wife and mother I could have ever hoped for. I Love U more than life itself Booblan aka Best friend. Super excited for what God has planned for our family and our future."
3. Ezel Vermeulen
Duane Vermeulen returned back to South Africa to play for the Blue Bulls after a couple of years abroad.
Vermeulen married Ezel in 2012 and the couple has two kids together.
4. Marise Pollard
In 2018, Flyhalf Handre Pollard tied the knot to his long-time girlfriend, Marise. The famous number 10 player often gushes about his bride on his Instagram page.
"You will never know just how beautiful you are to me," he captioned a photo of his wife.
