The new-look edition of SA Rugby magazine is out now with fresh content, including a look at how the Springboks have used their traditional strengths to get the better of the All Blacks.
October’s edition of the magazine not only has a fresh design and new look, but it also has a particular focus on the history between the Springboks and All Blacks.
This takes the form of a review of the 101-Test rivalry between the two nations and how the Springboks have demonstrated that, when sticking to their strengths, they have the beating of New Zealand. This was recently demonstrated in the second Test between the two teams on the Gold Coast, where the Springboks claimed a thrilling 31-29 win.
There’s also a look back at three of the best Springbok performances against the All Blacks since the game turned professional, including the memorable victory in Wellington in 2018. Get your copy of the magazine to cast a vote on which performance deserves to be top of the rankings.
A new regular feature starting with this edition is the Great Springbok Quiz, which will put your knowledge of the history between the Springboks and All Blacks to the test.
Another new addition is Coaches’ Corner, which offers coaches helpful drills and tips to develop the future stars of the game.
Our Young Player feature casts the spotlight on a talented prodigy – the son of a former Springbok – who is said to have the potential to be “South Africa’s next Handre Pollard”.
A European focus looks at Cheslin Kolbe’s expensive transfer from Toulouse to Toulon, which was more multifaceted than it first appears, as well as an overview of the teams South Africa’s contenders will be facing in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship.
Finally, we scrutinise Aphelele Fassi’s Springbok future after his highly successful Test debut, as well as look at how Mzwandile Stick has gone from strength to strength as an integral member of the Springboks’ coaching staff.
