Everyone is writing the Springboks off ahead of Saturday’s final test of the tour against England at Twickenham, but they are taking heart from what Scotland showed the rugby world this past weekend.

In the build-up to the Bok match in Edinburgh the Scots made no secret of how much they were hurting after their massive 49-3 defeat at the hands of the All Blacks the previous week. Their coach Andy Robinson apologised to the Scotland nation, and the players vowed to fight back.

The Scots completed a fairytale turn-around against the Boks at Murrayfield, and the South Africans think they can do the same this week.

“Scotland felt really hurt after losing by such a big score to the All Blacks, but they came back and used that hurt positively and it motivated them to get up and beat us last week. We can do the same against England and we are looking to do what they did by letting the hurt work for us,” said Bok scrum coach Os du Randt.
