The Springboks have embraced a staple of South African life as they prepare to field a heavily changed side to face World Cup minnows Romania on Sunday.
Jacques Nienaber will name his matchday squad for the clash on Wednesday evening, with a number of changes expected.
Assistant coach Felix Jones said that player management could come into play this week.
“One of the big focus areas for us this year has been to manage player load,” said Jones.
“Obviously, we want to win every week, but we have a quality squad in which the players are pushing one another for places, so we may make a few rotations.
“It’s important for us to balance the load, so should we progress in the competition we have a squad that is match fit, which will allow us to call on any player at any time when we need them.”
The Springboks returned to basics and the training field on Tuesday following their 18-3 victory against Scotland in Marseille on Sunday.
Despite Romania being a lesser-known opponent, coming into the game on the back of an 83-8 loss to Ireland, Jones said the Boks were determined to deliver a quality performance as they look to build momentum in the competition.
“We’ll treat the match against Romania as we do every other game,” said Jones.
“The most important thing is to give ourselves an opportunity to win the match and then we’ll see how things pan out.
“Their coach spoke directly to their fans at home after their last match and said they wanted to make their nation proud. They are a passionate team, and they won’t take a step back in their physicality. They also have good backs and an impressive distance kicking game, so there are plenty of threats they pose.”
