Sports Boks looking for last chance to restore lustre

South Africa’s giant lock Eben Etzebeth says he and his Springbok team mates have a last chance to restore lost lustre when they conclude the Rugby Championship with another meeting against New Zealand on Saturday. The world champions narrowly lost 19-17 to the All Blacks in Townsville last Saturday as the top-ranked New Zealanders won the southern hemisphere championship with a match to spare. It was a third successive defeat for the Boks, after going down twice to Australia, and leaves them with only pride to play for at the Robina Stadium on the Gold Coast. "We are hoping for a better showing, you are never happy losing in a Bok jersey," Etzebeth told a news conference on Monday.(Reuters)
