Key player: Henry Honiball

The man they call Blade will need to be at his sharpest in this World Cup.

One of several Springboks recovering from injury, Honiball will retire from international rugby after the World Cup to pull on the number 10 shirt for Bristol in the Allied Dunbar Premiership.

Made his reputation in South Africa_s run of 17 consecutive Test victories, which ended in 1998.

His strength is in his running game and unlike the outside halves who replaced him earlier in the season when he was injured Honiball is happy to take the ball into contact and commit the opposing back row.
