Despite their triumph, the Springboks’ fate remains uncertain, as both Ireland and Scotland still hold the cards. Scotland’s Challenge: Scotland faces a do-or-die situation, needing a victory over Ireland while preventing them from earning a bonus point. Points difference becomes the decider, with Ireland (+122), South Africa (+117), and Scotland (+97) vying for the top spot. If Ireland loses to Scotland by a margin of seven points or less, and Scotland fails to secure a bonus point, the Springboks would advance as pool runners-up. Nail-biting tension and passionate fervour grip the fans of Ireland, South Africa, and Scotland, making the concluding weekend a spectacle not to be missed.
