2015-09-04 11:22

Cape Town - News24 Live spoke to Miss South Africa, Liesl Laurie, at a #HomeGoundAdvantage ceremony, where she showed her support for the Boks ahead of the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Miss SA was part of a special ceremony at the Springboks Experience Museum at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. A special piece of turf to give the Springboks real #HomeGroundAdvantage at the 2015 Rugby World Cup was 'christened' by a host of South African celebrities and sportsmen.

The grass is being grown in soil drawn from all 14 South African rugby provinces. The seed will be taken to the UK where it will be planted and grown and then placed in special trays in the Springbok dressing room.

The South African turf will be the last thing the players’ boots touch before they head for the field during the tournament.
