The sun is shining at Twickenham and there’s not a cloud in the sky.
While it’s been overcast and raining in the week leading up to the game, the weather gods have done the Boks a favour.
Once again all the talk of the Boks having to play in challenging northern hemisphere conditions has meant nothing, and Jake White’s side will have no excuses should they lose their sixth successive match at this stadium.
The Boks are busy warming up on the field … so far they’ve looked slick going through their pre-match drills. Let’s hope they’re as impressive when there’s opposition.
There are hundreds of South African fans outside the stadium, most of them in Bok jerseys, and the odd idiot with an old South African flag.
