Ingozi: A few days to the Rugby World Cup

Originally uploaded by von_brandis.

Mhambi thinks its unlikely that the Springboks will win the Rugby World Cup (RWC), considering the difficulties they have experienced of late.

Yet, they have a team with real class and pace to go with their passion. A team that in many respects - bar the key position of flyhalf - superior to the one that won the 1995 cup.

One senses this team has not shown all they can do. And if not the favourites, they are much better placed than all bar New Zealand and France.

But such is the pessimism around the future of Afrikanerdom - the traditional font of Bok rugby - that some predict this is the Springboks last great team.

Luckily South Africa has a history of confounding pessimists. Lets hope for the best. Hoekvlag toe.
