Cape Town - Lwazi Mvovo gets former Springbok wing Breyton Paulse's vote to start for the Springboks at the Rugby World Cup. News24 Live spoke to Breyton at a #HomeGroundAdvantage ceremony in Cape Town. Watch.
Paulse 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.
