Prediction South Africa vs Romania Rugby World Cup 2023
All the experience of the three-time champions will be reflected in this match. They will be far superior to a team of a very minor category that has not yet been able to establish itself on the World Cup field despite having played it on numerous occasions. The backs will make a lot of difference at the ends after a great job in the “kitchen” by the forwards who stand out a lot in the fixed formations and meeting points.
Prediction: South Africa 36-9 Romania. Victory for the Springboks.
