Nelspruit Mombela stadium. Capacity only 40000. Saru's Erasmus opted for the win instead of the money. Ellispark and Loftus 60000 seaters. Official announcement next week. Nelspruit is in the Kruger park where the big 5 roam around town. Springboks has a 100% win record in the stadium. Boer Daan Human announced boks scrum coach. He's from the Cheetahs. Coached Blue bulls Currie Cup and Super rugby scrum. He'll probably have a boer pack without Beast. Koch Marx Kitshof Etzebeth Mostert du Toit

You want them to play in Durban, coached by Etienne Flynn, with a Zulu pack ?

Edit: Beast has retired. The others except PSDT are overseas. Expect a totally different pack.

Very nice
And a boon to the surrounding area. Duane Vermelen hails from those parts. Good rugby country.

Why does this stadium give them a better shot than winning rather than, say, Fortress Ellis? Have the right caterers moved there or something?

You Kiwis are always looking for excuses. Fact is the Springboks could not even play tests for decades and years to come maybe with their best merit based team. Have we made excuses for that we always have to adhere to a 50/50 quota? No Fullstop. We had better white players before that were dropped last minute to accommodate black players. Nowadays we have better black players maybe in the backline but we have to include a weaker whitey in the back three. Let your goverment push you to the brink with a devastating law that Maori players must make up 50%. Yes Maori are good enough but not every year. We will rock up eating Chinese dog food before the game and be so sick but still win without excuses. You lost the '95 WC because Jonah was tackled and tackled again. I never saw ABs leaving the field for toilet as is claimed by Kiwi social media

Small stadium, small town. It will be quite an experience for the ABs team. It's the heart of the highveld and and area that has produced a lot of our star players. I'm sure it's also about growing the game away from the traditional strongholds.

Reminds me of when we played the ABs in Rustenburg.

It's not our fault your country chose racism over test Rugby.

Obviously a good move to take the game all over the country

Should be a pleasant trip for the ABs too

Yes remember the Rustenburg win 2006 over the ABs. Sephaka was my hero came in for Os who was the best. Solly Tyibilika was another hero around that time although I must admit the times Schalk Burger was dropped a day before the tests by Sports Minister's intervention to met his Quota was insane. Solly Tyibilika was shot dead in 2011 at age 34. Bolla Conradie for Fourie du Preez another Sports Minister's intervention was another insane politics in sport thing around that time. But in all that the Boks pulled it through even if it was their second best and famous managed a famous win in 2006. Remember only 25000 spectators rocked up because soccer is the nr1 sport amongst our blacks in SA

Do not be so sensitive. Was not deliberate but just the outcome of 3rd world hygiene.

3 rd world hygiene. You really feel confident with that statement considering the year and the five star treatment overseas teams received at the WC in 95 also none of the other nations complained except the Kiwis after they lost.
2007 after the AB loss it was Barnes Ref although they had numerous opportunities to win their quarter final with a dropgoal
2019 in their semis they were just cuddling up to the England forwards and all you hear from their supporters are the Springboks were lucky
