THE winner of the Castle Lager Incoming Series will be decided at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium this Saturday.
The Springboks will be playing in the third and final test against a very strong Irish side. With only three test matches previously played at the stadium, the Boks have a 67% winning rate locally.
“We conclude the series in Port Elizabeth where there is also such great passion for the Springbok team,” said Allister Coetzee, Springbok Head Coach.
Selected members of the Springbok squad and SA Rugby’s Deputy President, Mark Alexander, will be at the opening of the Boks for Books schools library at Walmer Primary School today.
The team to play this Saturday will be announced tomorrow. (See our Facebook page for the full squad.)
Kick off is on Saturday at 5pm. Gates open at 1pm. There will be food stalls and bar facilities available, as well as a beer garden and live entertainment.
The referee will be Glen Jackson (New Zealand), with Angus Gardner (Australia) and Ben Whitehouse (Wales) as the assistant referees and Rowan Kitt (England) as the TMO.
The Voice SA winner, Richard Stirton, will sing the South African national anthem on Saturday and an upcoming Cape Town singer, Nathan Hendricks, will perform the visitors’ anthem.
Win! Win! Win!
