South Africa’s director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus says the Boks will give England the respect they deserve, by preparing well and ticking all the boxes ahead of their highly anticipated Rugby World Cup semi final on Saturday. Erasmus spoke to the media after the Boks epic 29-28 quarterfinal win over the hosts France, which has got the nations spirits up as the Bokke continue with the fight to defend their crown. England reached the last four of the World Cup for the second successive tournament with a 30-24 victory over Fiji in Marseille, as Steve Borthwicks men turned things around after some poor pre-tournament form.
England have won all their matches at the tournament after being placed in the less tougher side of the draw, while the Boks have a blemish to their names with that one loss to Ireland in the Pool stages, but have won back-to-back matches since that defeat. Erasmus says the Boks will give England the utmost respect, by preparing well and ticking all the Boks for their semi final clash in Paris.
