VIDEO: Tracking the Springboks
SOCIAL MEDIA SPOTLIGHT: It was a good weekend for the teams from South Africa in the Champions Cup and Challenge Cup.
All five South African sides – Sharks, Stormers, Bulls, Lions and Cheetahs – made it through the next round of the European competition.
Sharks, Stormers and Bulls advance to the Round of 16 of the Champions Cup, while Lions and Cheetahs booked spots in the knock-out of the Challenge Cup.
But while the teams delivered some great results, there was some amazing individual brilliance by the Springbok players.
*Here are some of the Bok players’ best moments of the weekend.
Brawn meets brain
🐛🦈 @EbenEtzebeth does not fear caterpillars!
He’s disrupted a few in the first half, and now gets his hands on the ball and races to the line.
Incredible poaching from the Springbok 🦌#HeinekenChampionsCup | @SharksRugby pic.twitter.com/ljhuqpOvT8
