JOHANNESBURG – The Springboks’ return to Pretoria for Saturday's Test friendly on local soil was labelled as a ‘homecoming' by assistant coach Matt Proudfoot.
The Boks are making the final preparations for the 'Farewell Test' against Argentina at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday and Proudfoot is excited about the prospects and an appearance at Loftus (start 5.05pm).
“This is as important as the first game against Australia because it continues our evolution as a team,” said Proudfoot. “We spent three weeks in Pretoria for our build-up before the Castle Lager Rugby Championship started and this has almost been our home for this campaign for us.
“So the guys are really excited to be back in Pretoria and are pleased to be at Loftus. It’s great.”
The Springboks will name their team for the match on Wednesday afternoon, and although the Rugby Championship has been won, Proudfoot said the team’s work was far from complete.
