World Champions Springboks take on World No. 5 Scotland in Pool B

It’s a crunch game in Pool B of the Rugby World Cup 2023, as the defending champions South Africa Springboks go head-to-head against ranked 5th Scotland.

South Africa won the Rugby World Cup four years ago by defeating England in the Final to equal the record of winning three World titles. They are coming into this tournament in magnificent form. South Africa hammered 14-man New Zealand in their final game before heading to France by 35-7, a week after stomping Wales.

On the other hand, Scotland displayed a couple of promising performances, beating second-string France before losing a narrow game against a much stronger Les Blues side.

Both sides will look to start on the right foot as the Six Nations Grand Slam winners Ireland, who are also ranked 1st in the World, loom large in Pool B.
