whole of South Africa will come to a standstill.
“Everyone will be expecting fireworks and I
think that with the kind of performance we have shown on Wednesday, we will be
up for a challenge come Saturday.”

Amakhosi supporters to come out in numbers to rally behind them as he promises
that Chiefs will do their best to live up to their expectations on the day.
