Lock Lood de Jager, who has forced his way into the starting line-up for Sunday’s World Cup quarter-final against Japan in Tokyo, believes that the Springboks are far more prepared for this clash than they were in their 2015 tournament opener against the Brave Blossoms in Brighton.
That shocking 34-32 loss to Japan remains one of rugby’s biggest ever upsets.
De Jager, Tendai Mtawarira and Pieter-Steph du Toit are the only three Boks starting this weekend who also started that match.
