Mapimpi was once again one of the Springboks’ stars of the show in last weekend’s Test against Scotland, scoring a brace of tries.

Coming into that clash at Murrayfield, the speedster had scored a try against every Test team he played against – except Scotland, but he quickly set that record straight on Saturday.

“It’s a good feeling to have the ball in my hand and when I’m handed opportunities to finish something off,” the 31-year-old said afterwards.

“But it’s my job too. There’s a real desire from us to strike as much as possible (on attack). We do a lot of analysis on teams and some instances (like this match) it’s about attacking from a turnover.”

Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber once again raved about the impact of Mapimpi, who has become such a deadly finisher out wide.

“Makazole is an outstanding player. He scored two glittering tries. He’s doing that against every team he faces. If you look at the work he does off the ball and in training, it’s amazing. He just works so hard on his whole game.

“His skill-set just keeps developing and improving, not just his finishing.”

The Springboks will next face England this Saturday, with Mapimpi set to receive another opportunity to add to his stunning try-scoring ratio.
