Rassie gives update on pocket-rocket Kolbe ahead of Final
WORLD CUP SPOTLIGHT: The Springboks will need all their best players available if they are to knock over England in Saturday’s World Cup Final.
The good news for the South Africans is that Cheslin Kolbe has been declared fit to face the English.
The 26-year-old missed his team’s tense 19-16 semifinal victory over Wales because of an ankle injury.
“It’s probably exactly the same team [that face Wales], with Cheslin Kolbe being one of the guys who comes into the matchday 23,” Erasmus told reporters in Tokyo Bay on Tuesday.
Kolbe will likely replace Sibusiso Nkosi on the right wing with the latter dropping out of the matchday 23.
The Springboks have no other injury concerns after their semifinal clash with Wales.
