Welcome to this live broadcast dedicated to the match between South Africa and Tonga. The 2019 world champions have no choice but to win if they want to see the final phase of the World Cup. To compensate for the failure of the scorers, the coach recalled Handré Pollard, South Africa’s top scorer in the Rugby World Cup.
What is it about ? A crucial clash in Group B. The Springboks are aiming for an improved victory against the Sea Eagles so that their future does not depend on the match between Scotland and Ireland on October 7. For their part, Tonga want to revive after two heavy defeats against Ireland (16-59) and Scotland (17-45).
Or ? At the Stade-Vélodrome, in Marseille.
At what time ? The match kicks off at 9 p.m.
On which channel ? TF1.
Qui live ? Louise Le Borgne and Valentin Baudry, the two twirling wingers of the Kop d’Austerlitz, with Clément Martel at the opening in the press gallery of the Vélodrome.
