Springboks can beat Samoa, says Copostagno

SuperSport commentator Andy Copostagno, speaking to 702's Xolani Gwala, said the Springboks can beat Samoa in Birmingham on Saturday even though there are still not enough players of colour in the team.

Coach Hayneke Meyer has made eight changes to the starting team and brought on two new players to the bench.

What he hasn’t done is transform. There are only five players of colour in the 23, two of them are black Africans and he painted himself into a corner because he only picked eight players of colour in the squad of 31. There should be more.

Copostagno said the reshuffling was definitely a move of panic.
