The Springboks silenced all their critics with a brutally powerful performance against an improving Scottish side. South Africa dominated proceedings from start to finish with the young lock, Lood de Jager leading from the front.
Although the on-field performance was not exactly what I was hoping for, the stadium and atmosphere certainly made up for it. The South African support was outstanding with near enough equal Boks to Jocks in attendance. Our seats were brilliant and we had a great view of the pitch and got a real feel for the intensity of the game.
Our hotel, Staybridge Suites, provided an ideal location from which we could explore the rest of the city. Located only a short walk from Quayside, staff were friendly and helpful and the parking available was a bonus!
All in all a great weekend had by everyone and an experience I won’t forget. Click on the picture above to see what life is like within the South African Rugby World Cup Squad.
