Namibia has named a side that features all the key players, although there has been a little tinkering with the pack. Coach Johan Diergaardt has been consistent in his selections so far, so this team was no surprise to anyone.
If anyone thought South Africa might give its reserves a run in this match, think again. Peter de Villiers has named a formidable side, which sees the return of Bryan Habana from injury and all but three of the starting lineup were in action against Fiji. Victor Matfield is still getting his hamstring problem right but most of the Springbok big guns are in the matchday 22.
Lost to Fiji 25-49
Lost to Samoa 12-49
Beat Wales 17-16
Beat Fiji 49-3
Namibia has shown itself to be a much better side than at previous World Cups even though both opponents have posted scores of 49. Playing against a class of opposition it seldom meets, Namibia has struggled on defence at times with the fast-paced attacking skills of these sides but has also shown itself capable of mounting rapid and accurate attacks of its own. This match will most likely be an even tougher test, especially up front, but both Fiji and Samoa ran out their best teams and never really looked like running riot against the Welwitschias.
South Africa had to battle all the way against Wales and could not have complained if it had been beaten in that match; in the end it appeared the Springboks won because they believed they would. There were no such issues against Fiji, when the South African pack took control early and was utterly dominant long before the end. While many were wondering how good South Africa really was after that display, there is no doubt 22 Fijian players would suggest the Boks were very good. It was actually one of the most dominant performances by any team so far at the tournament.
Namibia skipper Jacques Burger has not spared himself in this tournament, and he knows that finding a way to his country’s first win will not be easy. “I felt really proud of the boys,” he said after the Samoa game. “I could see them working really hard. Guys stayed tough and kept on working. I can see us improving. It’s the World Cup, and you’re representing your country, and you’ve got to take it and make the best of it.” Toughness is inherent in Namibians, and they’ll probably need all of it against South Africa.
Springbok captain John Smit is adamant that this match is vital to his side’s preparation, and that nobody will be struggling for motivation. “Every single guy here understands that it’s a seven-week goal that needs you to focus on week by week. It’s important for us to be really ruthless again and try to improve on the areas that we have shown progress on,” he said after the team had been named. So expect the Boks to attack this game just as hard as they’ve played the rest.
