Did you know? Before rugby had planned to be a hunter
Corne Krige, as Springbok captain, will have a major public relations role to play during the tournament.

Krige and his side were heavily criticised after their defeat to England last November for their violent tactics, which was resurfaced in the second Tri-Nations game against Australia.

Krige and five team-mates were fined for their conduct against England, and a different approach to the game will be much sought after at the World Cup.

Krige remains a hefty tackler and strong attacking force when he plays the game to his full potential.

And the 28-year-old will have plenty to prove in the tournament having hinted he will retire from international rugby at the end of the trip to Australia.
