The Springboks team is named for the first test against the Lions on Saturday evening 5pm UK time and we can’t wait for it, some big names selected and some names that were included in the ‘Springboks A’ that played against the Lions last week.
It was also announced that all three Lions fixtures will now take place at Cape Town, one of the matches was due to take place in Johannesburg but because of the Delta variant threat growing in Joburg. The decision was made to keep it simple and not run the risk of having any of the tests cancelled due to Covid.
