South Africa vs Tonga Betting Tips Rugby World Cup 2023
The Africans are coming to the Rugby World Cup after finishing second in the last Rugby Championship with 18 points, just one point behind the champion, New Zealand. The performance of Jacques Nienaber’s team is always good and over the years, despite having changed their coach, Rassie Erasmus, they have maintained a game structure that they respect very firmly. In the last time, the red team has just finished in the last place of the Pacific Nations Cup 2022 without being able to score points. They were 14 points behind the champions, Samoa. They have not been performing well lately and must polish several facets of their game to be a competent team.
How the Springboks and Tonga play and some statistics
If there is a team that has never changed the way they play, it is South Africa. Always with the idea of transferring pressure to the opponent by means of kicks from the openside or scrum half. Always looking to dominate through the line and maul and be smart to make decisions without risking their own goal. Ikale Tahi is a team with remarkable physical power and with little lucidity. They have a decent game of forwards and backs with speed, power and hardness in contact, however, the game tends to be messy and not all the virtues are not achieved. We can highlight the powerful Malaki Fekitoa.

Prediction South Africa vs Tonga Rugby World Cup 2023
Beyond the clear difference between the rivals, the last history of a South Africa vs Tonga is a close, hard-fought and hard-working match. It is understood that perhaps Nienaber’s team will rotate certain players to take care of them for the quarterfinals, which will be very competitive and demand a high level from all players. There will be a lot of friction in the first few minutes due to the momentum of the Tongans, but then it will die down.
Prediction: South Africa 46-12 Tonga. Victory for the green team.
