The Boks’ World Cup triumph is the obvious on-field memory of the year, but editor CRAIG LEWIS picks one piece of play in particular as his moment of 2019.
For this selection of our moment of the year, you will need to fast forward to 14 minutes and 10 seconds of these extended highlights below.
It’s here that the Springboks display immense innovation and supreme confidence to set up a unique midfield maul that includes almost the entire pack of forwards.
It draws a penalty and from there flyhalf Handre Pollard kicks the Boks into a nine-point buffer at the 56-minute mark. After that point, the rest is history.
What a season it has been. Happy new year from the SA Rugby magazine team.
