- Cheslin Kolbe may well be joining the Springboks as they prepare to take England on in the Rugby World Cup final
- The wing had missed out on the semi-final glory against Wales over the weekend after an injury
- Kolbe has since been given the green light but Mzansi will have to wait to hear if he made the cut
Cheslin Kolbe could be joining the Springboks in their bid to dominate England in the highly-anticipated Rugby World Cup final.
Briefly.co.za reported that the Bokke had managed to secure their spot in the last face-off of the championship with their victory against Wales in Japan.
The South African reports that the 26-year-old had been replaced following an ankle injury sustained in a match against Italy.
Coach Rassie Erasmus has confirmed that all 31 players are now available for selection, commenting:
“We are lucky enough to have a full squad of all 31 players available and ready to train today. Our team selection won’t be far off from what we’ve been selecting the last couple of games. We’ll pretty much go with the same team.”
With Kolbe having played in three games during the cup thus far, he is considered to be part of the 'first-team'.
While South Africa had managed to secure a win against England in the 2007 World Cup final, speculation is running high over what the outcome of Saturday's match will be.
President Cyril Ramaphosa himself will be present to support our boys in green and gold, with citizens expected to come out in droves to witness the exchange.
The announcement concerning team members for the Springboks will take place on Thursday, with kick-off taking place at 11am local time on Saturday.
