Which South African players will get the most out of the 2019 World Cup?

South Africa have already won two games in the World Cup and have beaten England in the final.

But the team is likely to take a step back in the 2019 tournament, and will need to find new ways to get the best out of its young talent.

The new World Cup will be a huge opportunity for South Africa, who have been under pressure since the loss of star forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to England in 2018.

The side has already been knocked out of their final group game in the quarter-finals in 2018 and are now without Huntelaars captain and All Blacks lock Jonathan Davies.

It is expected to be a very competitive World Cup for the hosts, but the fact that the team won two of its last three games and has already beaten England means that they will have some options going forward.

South Africa will face off against a side that won four of their last six matches, including beating France in the group stage and Argentina in the semi-finals.

They also won a tight series against Australia, but their most recent loss came against Wales, who had a strong showing at the World Series in Australia.

The other key players in South Africa’s squad for 2019 include the likes of flanker Dannie du Plessis, who was the top scorer at the Rugby World Cup in 2019, and wing Conrad Smith, who scored 22 tries in 2019. 

Dannie du Pic, who made his debut against France, will also be playing in 2019 after recovering from shoulder surgery. 

Smith, who has been playing with the All Blacks in their World Cup campaign, has also been training with the team, with the news of his return to training in the New Zealand capital. 

South Africa’s top-four opponents in 2019 will be England, Wales and Argentina.

The South African side will also have to face off with hosts New Zealand, who are still unbeaten in their three World Cup matches, and South Africa hosts the Barbarians, who won their opening World Cup match against England in Auckland.

England, who also won the Rugby Championship in 2019 and finished second in the tournament overall, will be looking to get back on track after a disappointing World Series appearance against France in 2019 in which they lost 19-0.

Wales are the next big challenger for South African supremacy in 2019 with a young and exciting squad, with wing Aaron Shingler, who captained the Lions to a first-class win over Australia, as well as the All Black wing Michael Hooper, who is in his third year at the club. 

Wales have had a poor start to the World Tour this year, and the All-Green Rovers will be hoping to make a big splash against South Africa in 2019 to continue their run to the semi final. 

Shingler has already scored five tries in the Rugby Series, and Hooper is looking to put in a good performance against the South Africans. 

Auckland, New Zealand is the next place the South African team will be aiming to get results after finishing third in the South Africa Rugby Championship. 

New Zealand will have a tough task against the All Green Rovers and Wales in 2019 but the All Red Lions will have to be patient if they want to beat South Africa.

Both sides have already made it to the final of the World Rugby Sevens Series.

The All Blacks are favourites for a place at the 2019 Rugby World Series, but South Africa are the favourites to win it after a strong World Series performance against England.
