Cape Town - Should the Boks score a try against Wales at the Principality Stadium on Saturday, whichever player dots down that first five-pointer will etch his name into the record books.
Kick-off is at 19:30 (SA time).
For the try will be the 1 300th in Springbok history, dating back to the very first Test on July 30, 1891 (Springboks lost 4-0 to Britain in Port Elizabeth).
It's been an annus horribilis for the Springboks in 2016, with a current record of played 11, won 4, lost 7.
In those 11 Tests, the Springboks have scored a paltry 19 tries at an average of 1.73 per match.
The Boks have scored 227 points this year (20.6 per match), and have conceded 302 (27.4 per match).
Contrast that to the All Blacks who have crossed the tryline a staggering 77 times in their 13 Tests in 2016 (5.9 per match) and have scored 538 points at an average of 41.4 a Test.
They say defence wins matches, but it also drives away crowds from stadiums.
Let it rain tries this weekend!
