The festival of rugby, as celebrated by the Barbarians and their annual opponents does not mean that the forward packs are left behind, as the flashy backs score the tries and grab the limelight.

In fact, it gives all players, including props like Asithandile Ntoyanto opportunities to showcase their skills as well, according to the Springbok Women front-rower.

on Saturday, the Women Boks’ first appearance against the Baabaas will be a perfect opportunity for the South Africans to showcase their progress on tour and give a glimpse of where they are in terms of their progress towards the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand next year.
