SPORTS DAY: Injury hoodoo over for Jantjies and Kolbe
Your roundup of the sporting news of the day
Kolbe, Jantjies fit for Japan
Cheslin Kolbe and Herschel Jantjies will line up when the Springboks play Japan in their World Cup quarterfinal on Sunday. Both carried minor injuries that have cleared and will be a crucial part of the Boks’ attacking plays against the Japanese. Japan hasn’t just dazzled with their superb handling but they have fronted up too‚ drawing the sting from Ireland and Scotland’s more sizeable forwards. “They are varying their game,” noted coach Rassie Erasmus. “They only kicked eight times against Scotland but earlier against Samoa 32 times. It is going to be tactical challenge.”..
