Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis has wished the Springboks the best of luck when they take on England in the 2019 Rugby World Cup final in Yokohama, Japan on Saturday.

The two teams also played in the final in 2007 in France when the Boks beat the English to win their second Rugby World Cup.

The Boks beat Wales in the semi-finals in a hard fought match last Sunday, while England shocked the reigning champions New Zealand in the other semi-final on Saturday.

South African Football Association Acting CEO Russel Paul is confident they will do well.

SABC will broadcast the match live on SABC 2 at 11am and also on Radio 2000, Radio Sonder Grense and Umhlobo Wenene FM.

Phil Moilwa, who is the SABC’S Acting GE for Corporate Affairs and Marketing also wished the Boks well. – Report by Vincent Sitsula
