South African rugby coach, Rassie Erasmus, has announced an unchanged Springbok line-up for their World Cup opener against New Zealand in Yokohama on Saturday.

The team will be led by flanker, Siya Kolisi, while number 8, Duane Vermeulen will play in his 50th test.

Replacement flanker, Francois Louw, says Erasmus has established a professional set-up in the national team.

“You have to commend all the guys that have been involved with Rassie in preparing us for this World Cup. The way that we took on the Rugby Championship this year, the test we played last year; it really is a special group of people that are willing to produce the highest level of input into our system possible in order for us to play the best game of rugby.”
