Cape Town - Monday saw some of the Springboks feeling a little home sick as indicated by some of the tweets a few of the active Springboks were tweeting.

Flyhalf, Morné Steyn(@mornesteyn) put thoughts of being a perfect pivot on the backburner as he prepares for the arrival of his wife later this week.

"(Sic) Just 3 more days before my wife is coming over to join us here......AWESOME!!!Missing SA-the weather,food and all the friends and family!”  tweeted Steyn.

Meanwhile, wing, Bryan Habana (@BryanHabana) spent his time racking up the laughs with some home grown comedy when he tweeted: “(Sic) Just watched @Trevornoah's Crazy Normal!! I can't stop laughing!!! Gotta love how unique South Africa is!!! Brilliant!! Time 4 bed!!”

One of his Rugby World Cup-winning team-mates in 2007, now commentator, Bob Skinstad (@BobSkinstad) chose to view New Zealand’s landscape with an extra shot of adrenalin pumping through his veins and posted today’s Picture of the Day.

“(Sic)@OwenEastwood @skinstad @danskindstad - am savouring NZ !”
