The 164-page 2023 Rugby World Cup special edition of SA Rugby magazine backs the Siya Kolisi-led Springboks to conquer the world in France and retain the Webb Ellis Cup.
The days are counting down rapidly until the World Cup gets under way on Friday, 8 September.
Kolisi and his men are aiming to go where no Springbok has gone before in winning back-to-back World Cup titles.
The Springboks are no strangers to France, having won the 2007 World Cup final in Paris. However, the 2023 tournament will present the Boks with an opportunity to blaze a new trail by becoming the first team to win four World Cups.
South Africa are in Pool B with Ireland and Scotland, each ranked in World Rugby’s top five, and will have to navigate a daunting quarter-final showdown either with hosts France or the resurgent All Blacks en route to the final.
Inside the bumper edition, you will find the backstory of each previous tournament, team preview and scene-setters for the decisive pool clashes. You will also find the greatest Springboks World Cup XV, selected by SA Rugby magazine‘s panel of experts, as well as a FREE World Cup fixtures poster, to keep you on track as the fixtures fly in thick and fast.
