What a start for South Africa in this 2023 Rugby World Cup. For their entry into the competition, the reigning World Champions will face the formidable Scottish team. A shock in perspective from the first match for the partners of Cheslin Kobe who will be a good starter to face Finn Russell’s teammates. The Springboks arrive in France in fine form after humiliating New Zealand at Twickenham (35-7) a few days ago. In the last two editions, they have conceded a defeat (against Japan in 2015 and against the Blacks in 2019), which makes Jacques Nienaber think: “Winning your first test in a World Cup does not necessarily mean that you will end up winning or losing the World Cup. It’s just a historical fact. It’s nice for the experts and it gives a little more stake. But does it have a bearing on whether or not you win the World Cup? World Cup? No. But obviously it will take some pressure off if you win the first match.” The South African manager took the opportunity to give his opinion on the Scottish formation: “This game against Scotland is the most important for us in this World Cup because we are in a difficult group. They are classified fifth and we We know what they’re capable of. They’re a very athletic team and that allows them to commit and play for eighty minutes. That’s one of their strengths.”

On the Scottish side, this 2023 World Cup will have a special flavor. Indeed, the legendary full-back Stuart Hogg will not be there after ending his career last July. But for this 10th World Cup, the coach of the XV du Chardon believes more than ever in the achievement of his players: “It’s a lot of emotion and excitement to start this World Cup against South Africa. may be outsiders, but the most important thing is that we believe in victory. It was the same thing when we faced France, the favorite of the competition, in a preparation match in front of their supporters. We want to do the match as complete as possible. We start this World Cup by facing the best team, it’s a great opportunity for us. We took a lot of time to work in particular on the scrum and other details to be as ready as possible for meet this challenge.”
