Rassie Erasmus has done what he promised: The Springboks have qualified for the final of the Rugby World Cup tournament and Malcolm Marx is back with their teammates together with Makazole Mapimpi.
Both Bok stars’ World Cup campaigns were cut short by injuries – Marx injured his knee in one of the South Africans’ training sessions, while Mapimpi suffered a fractured cheekbone in the Springboks’ win against Tonga.
However, they were welcomed back with open arms and big smiles on Friday: Just in time to cheer on their teammates in the final against New Zealand.
According to reports, Marx and Mapimpi will also each receive a winner’s medal if the Springboks walk away with the laurels.
The match starts tonight at 21:00.
