🏉 Stand by for a Friday night rugby special as two heavyweights of world rugby go toe-to-toe in a historic fixture at Twickenham Stadium. Tickets are on sale here.
With the Rugby World Cup 2023 just a couple of weeks away one of the fiercest rivalries in rugby will be played out at the Home of England Rugby tonight. Tickets for All Blacks v Springboks at Twickenham are now on general sale.
Having won six Rugby World Cup titles between them, New Zealand and South Africa are two sides that have lit up the global game for generations. They have only previously played each other once at Twickenham, a tense 20-18 victory for the All Blacks in the semi-final of RWC 2015.
With many of the world’s leading players – including Cheslin Kolbe, Beauden Barrett, Siya Kolisi, Sam Whitelock, Faf de Klerk and Ardie Savea – set to grace the Twickenham turf, this is expected to be a white-hot ticket for rugby fans eager to see the players in the flesh ahead of the World Cup.
All Blacks’ Head Coach Ian Foster commented on the announcement: “This match will form an important part of our preparations for Rugby World Cup. Matches against the Springboks are always hard-fought and we are expecting nothing less than a titanic battle on this unique occasion.”
Jacques Nienaber, the Springbok Head Coach, said: “We’re excited to play this vital fixture before the Rugby World Cup at the iconic Twickenham.
“There is a large contingent of passionate expats and Springbok supporters in London, and we have no doubt they will come out in numbers and give us a lift before we attempt to defend our World Cup crown.”
The match continues the ongoing and closely contested rivalry between the All Blacks and South Africa, the most recent example being the Rugby Championship where the honours were split between two thrilling Tests at Mbombela Stadium and Ellis Park.
Who will come out on top in this battle of rugby superpowers and seize a psychological advantage ahead of the Rugby World Cup in France? All roads lead to the Home of England Rugby this evening to find out.
🏉 Kick-off is at 7.30pm.
