The England coach wanted to have his team at No 1 by the time the 2019 World Cup begins but they're now down to fourth and Wales could inflict more misery this weekend. Still, we will have to try a few things next week and we will have to make big calls going forward, which probably means we'll lose some matches, but we have to get players exposed to Test rugby and see if they have what it takes to make it at this level.

Kolisi, South Africa's first black Test captain in 127 years of playing global rugby, is only 26 (he'll be 27 this week), but given his tough childhood of poverty, maybe winning rugby matches from impossible situations is easy by comparison. We're playing at altitude again, so the higher-paced this game is, the more space there will be'. "We all know we wanted to get Bismarck in, and I feel the more guys you have who have been there and done that, the more the younger guys learn from them", Erasmus said.

Erasmus said they would certainly need to be prepared for a wily English team to offer new threats this Saturday.

"Obviously it helps a bit".

"Yes, so that was definitely something that made the choice easier but then the quality player he is - still two weeks ago he won a Premiership, so he is pretty much on the ball".

By the break, the Boks were ahead by 29-27 after a brace of tries by Sbu Nkosi, who was on debut for South Africa, as well as Willie le Roux and Faf de Klerk, both of whom were back in green and gold for the first time since 2016.

Erasmus left the door open for Brits to come into the match-day squad, especially if he continues to be part of the coach's "brave" selections this season. "Hopefully, if they throw something else at us, the guys will handle it".

Hooker Schalk Brits has been added to the Springbok squad and joined up with the group in Bloemfontein on Monday.
