What sets rugby apart from other sports is the respect between players and officials. That has never been more evident than when the three captains met for a photoshoot during the week.
Take a look at the clip below, with the three captains embracing, chatting, just as though they were on the same side. In other sports, this would seem impossible, but the respect that’s stitched into the fabric of rugby allows friendships to thrive in unlikely situations.

The All Blacks sit firmly at the top of the Rugby Championship table, which is being held in Australia at the moment due to COVID restrictions down south.
The All Blacks are due to take on the Springboks tomorrow morning, with kick-off set for 8:05 am
Tomorrow is a game that is massive for both sides, the last time they faced each other was in the pool stages of the Rugby World Cup in Japan back in 2019, pre-COVID.
The All Blacks will be out to show who the number one side in the world is and likewise for South Africa as they hope to climb back up to number one in the rankings, having been knocked off after two defeats in a row at the hands of the Wallabies.
