Wales vs South Africa : This rugby fixture could go either way, or at least that’s the chatter. Wales’ national team has fallen at this hurdle before, and it can’t get complacent and expect an easy go because of an injury on the other side of the pitch. Can the Springboks beat the odds and advance to the Rugby World Cup final, or will the Welsh team get there for the first time? To find out, you’ll want to catch a Wales vs South Africa live stream this weekend.
The big story going into the match-up is South Africa losing fullback Cheslin Kolbe to injury, a loss that even Rassie Erasmus, the Springbok coach, admitted to be to be “a big blow” to his team, when talking with the media earlier this week. S’bu Nkosi is set to fill in, and has the “full confidence” of his coach.
And as for the Wales team? Well, their attack formations have been criticized as ‘stuttering’, which is picking a narrow win for the Springboks — even though betting odds place Wales as the 2:5 favorite. Meanwhile the South African team’s already admitted to being concerned with the Wales team’s kicking and derided its use of filming their practices.
