Well taking that photo is not as easy as it may seem especially when the players start to laugh. A video shared by SuperSport Rugby earlier this year shows what exactly goes on when the rugby players have to take that team photo. The photo the video refers to was taken when South Africa took on Argentina in August.
Watch the Springboks trying to keep their cool for a team photo:
Faf de Klerk is enjoying the freedom Jacques Nienaber has given him in defence.
With Felix Jones now on board to provide knowledge of the Six Nations sides and even New Zealand rugby , as well as one of the best assistant coaches in the world in Jacques Nienaber, Erasmus must be pleased with how the South Africans are shaping up before taking on the All Blacks in their Pool B opener against New Zealand in Yokohama. The Springboks squad The shot of several Springboks flexing did draw some responses that questioned the legality of how they had got into such good shape, but scrum-half Faf de Klerk joked yesterday that the photo was just a bit of fun. The boys know where to stand in a picture like that. Whatever about their body fat percentages, the Boks are looking good on the rugby front ahead of their highly-anticipated clash with the All Blacks. Star backs like Cheslin Kolbe and big ball-carriers like Pieter-Steph du Toit give them plenty of attacking quality, but their defence has been even more fascinating to watch since Erasmus and Nienaber returned. De Klerk, despite standing just 5ft 7ins tall, is a strong defender for the Boks, joining the frontline at times but also having the license to make reads and blitz forward from sweeping positions behind the frontline, often catching opposition scrum-halves off guard. De Klerk is a key player for the Boks. Jacques has been great for the team environment in terms of giving guys confidence to do what they do well; be it tackling high or a guy tackling low.
By Staff Reporter Nov 3, Cape Town - It was an emotional day for South Africans all around the world as the Springboks went on to beat England to win the Webb Ellis Cup for the third time. Wingers Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe crossed in the last 15 minutes for South Africa's first-ever tries in a World Cup final but six penalties from the boot of Handre Pollard had already put the Springboks firmly in charge. Everyone across the country who had watched the exhilarating match, couldn't contain their excitement and emotion as the rugby team made the country proud. While the game was a joy to watch, some of the best moments also occurred after the final whistle had been blown: Faf de Klerk's speedo, Prince Harry rocking up in the team's locker and the team unleashing a few dance moves.
From the moment the Springboks clinched the Rugby World Cup in Yokohama on Saturday, social media has been flooded with GIFs, memes, and pictures that try to sum up the momentous occasion. We've rounded some gems that have made us chuckle. There are no limits for South Africans, it seems, these days. Especially when it comes to our sense of humour and our ability to win a Rugby World Cup. The memes came thick and fast, seconds after Handre Pollard kicked the ball out to touch, and referee Jerome Garces blew the final whistle, as the Boks romped to a victory. And it escalated very quickly Capetonians do have a flair for trolling. Shout out to vannie. Springbok scrumhalf Faf de Klerk nearly broke the internet, with this picture.
