SPRINGBOK STARS SHOW THEIR METTLE

Fullback Willie le Roux was selected to make his first-ever appearance for the Bulls and went on to score on debut in their match against Connacht in Pretoria.
The Springbok link-up for this Sharks try was crazy. Returning for Test duty, Makazole Mapimpi set-up Springbok teammates Eben Etzebeth for this five-pointer which helped the Sharks get their first win over the season.
Mapimpi was so influential in his first match back for the Sharks that he was crowned the official Man of the Match. Here he receives his medal from Springbok teammate Lukhanyo Am before making a post–match speech.
While not a World Cup winner, former Test star Willem Alberts knocked over conversion in the Lions’ runaway win against Zebre in the URC.
In an all-Springbok affair, flyhalf Curwin Bosch and scrumhalf Jaden Hendrikse worked in tandem to free up fullback Aphelele Fassi for this Sharks try.
Two-time World Cup winner Steven Kitshoff made his debut for Ulster in the second half of their URC match against the Glasgow Warriors, who ultimately went on to win the game.
Back-to-back World Cup-winning Springbok skipper Siya Kolisi was on debut for his new club Racing 92 this weekend. He started the match and was subbed off in the second half, but as seen in this video, Kolisi supported his teammates to the very end.
After Racing won the game, Kolisi was captured celebrating the victory with the Parisian club’s fans in the stands.
