LISTEN: It’s World Cup quarter-finals time … and the Boks take on France

In this week's edition, we talk all things Boks and the big World Cup quarter-final against France on Sunday.

It’s crunch time in the Rugby World Cup in France as the tournament heads into the knockout phase – no second chances, every match like a final.

The quarterfinal line-up has by-and-large dished up very few surprises, bar the early exit perhaps of Australia for the first time in the pool stage.

The Springboks have had little trouble dispatching opponents since their early stumble against Ireland in pool play. They face arguably one of their biggest challenges this week since capturing the Webb Ellis Cup in 2019 – host nation France awaits in the last-eight.

Join host Trevor Cramer and Head of Citizen Sport Jacques van der Westhuyzen as they discuss, among others, things to bear in mind and the potential pitfalls and potholes in playing the current Les Bleus side.

Also, the potential reasons for the Wallabies’ demise is under the microscope and are there still more tricks up the Bok coaching staff’s sleeves as the mind games intensify ahead of the France game? Also a summary of the four quarterfinal clashes and…Trevor puts Jacques on the spot to predict his potential outcomes.

Plus…the weekly FLOP and GOLD STAR of the week feature and more.
