No one could have expected it, but the Wales took a Victory last weekend when France got a stuck last-second field goal, marking the biggest upset in the Rugby World cup over the last few decades.
South Africa has well Planned, which will make them even more prepared to take on Wales. Having lost No.8 Josh Navidi to a hamstring injury earlier in the week, the withdrawal of the vastly experienced Williams for the rest of the tournament is terrible news.
On the plus side, Jonathan Davies has been included in the starting XV for Sunday, the centre is fit again after missing the quarter-final against France with a knee problem.
Both teams have potent offenses with incredibly talented players this season. Wales is averaging well performance per game, Key battle will be Gareth Davies v Faf de Klerk
However, don’t underestimate the South Africa defense. It will be the toughest the Wales have seen so far this season. Gareth Davies has been one of the Wonderful performers for Wales at this World Cup and on Sunday he wins his 50th cap for his country. He is coming off a tough game against Antoine Dupont last time out, and this time around he has a similarly brilliant match-up coming his way. Faf de Klerk is a bundle of energy and the heartbeat of the South African team, charged with lifting the tempo and marching his forward pack around. Davies will have to be in his face from the first minute to try to nullify De Klerk’s threat. If he can do that, Wales will fancy their chances of making it to a first final.
