Krige, who captained the national side at the 2003 Rugby World Cup in Australia, believes the final match will be a tight one.

He says Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus and his counterpart England boss Eddie Jones are both sharp and focused on bringing new tactics to each game.

Krige predicts that coach Rassie will play to the squad's strengths and execute a tough, physical and conservative game.

They are two very astute coaches and two guys that really think about the game, analyse the game and the opposition.

Corne Krige, Former Springbok captain

I'm extremely excited about the game, I think it's going to be tight.

Corne Krige, Former Springbok captain

We're not going to allow England to play much rugby. It's going to be a war of attrition, really.
