Kolisi supports Bok’s game plan to do business against Argentina



Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is backing the team’s normal game plan to do what it takes against Argentina to win the rugby championship at Durban’s Kings Park Stadium on Saturday night (kick-off at 5:05 pm).

The Boks have always played a somewhat conservative, kick-based game plan, which some people believe stifled the team from reaching higher heights.

They could be chasing a big score in bonus points to win the rugby championship on Saturday, if the All Blacks claim a good bonus point to win over the Wallabies themselves, which would mean the Boks would have to score a lot of tries against Argentina, which Kolisi believe they do. to be able to do it.

“Nothing will change our game plan. We will play again as we play. We will continue to follow the same systems we did when we played against the British and Irish Lions and in the World Cup, ”said Kolisi.

“So it won’t change, we may just have to achieve different goals than we had to and that’s the most important thing. We do not change our plan because of the situation, but we look and play what we have in front of us. “

Kolisi is also thrilled with the current unpredictability of the rugby league this season, with each team achieving amazing results, keeping the competition fully open until the last round.

“This is a great thing for rugby that suddenly you have four teams that can win the competition by going to the finals,” said Kolisi.

“I think rugby is becoming more competitive and this is attracting the fans because no one knows who will win that day. I think it’s good for the sport and helping it grow around the world. “

Extremely competitive

Kolisi expects an extremely competitive match and believes Argentina shouldn’t change anything as both teams will give their all to win, regardless of what happens in the other match of the day.

“I don’t think it will change much in their mentality. The way they played against us, their scrums went well and they probably would have worked hard on their maul. They have a lot of energy, with their exhaust game, which is something they will try to do, “said Kolisi.

“But they are probably sitting in the hotel saying that for the first time in their history they have a chance to win this trophy.

“I always say that I think we are similar countries in many ways. We like to play against Argentina because they are not nonsense, they give 100% and then they drink with us because we get along very well. “

Kolisi added: “They have a coach who is able to make them grow and who understands the game very well. We have the same on our side. So I think it will be a real final for both teams, whatever happens tomorrow morning between Australia and New Zealand. “
