Will it be lucky 7 for Boks?
NEW Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Argentina launch the seventh edition of the Rugby Championship today.
The series has been won by the All Blacks in five of the six previous years. Whether they can maintain this dominance has become a key talking point.
The back-to-back world champions have only lost twice in 33 Rugby Championship games, but the Springboks always feel confident and the Australians sense the All Blacks are vulnerable, especially in the series opener in Sydney today.
The Springboks are set to kick off their campaign with a clash against Argentina in Durban later this afternoon, before then facing Argentina, Australia and New Zealand away from home. – Staff Reporter
