South Africa has arguably named their strongest Rugby World Cup 2011 Springbok team to face the Welsh Dragons in their crunch World Cup opener on Sunday. The only glaring omissions are Bakkies Botha who has been ruled out due to an achilles problem and Bismarck du Plessis who starts from the bench. Other than this, Wales will definitely have their job cut out and with coach Warren Gatland moathing off in the media, this should be a mouth watering encounter.

I say Springboks by 12.
