Springbok fans are demanding a more expansive style of play and it looks like it’s a gamble the Bok coaching staff is willing to take.
But they will also not chuck out the traditional Bok playbook completely, instead they want to achieve a balance.
Backline coach Mzwandile Stick explains: “We’re on the right track at the moment where the players are given the opportunity and the freedom - if there are opportunities for them, they must go for it.
“Otherwise, if we’re not in control of the play, there’s also a kicking system in place…
“I must also make sure that whatever I bring to the table must compliment the other guys that I’m working with - [kicking consultant] Louis Koen and [attacking coach] Johann van Graan.
“We need to find balance… if we’re not well organised as a coaching staff, it will also show on the field.
“At the moment, we’re on the right track - we know when to attack, we know when to kick also.”
