Jessie Kriel, men's health cover model and physical specimen that he is, is actually perfectly physically average for a test center (and self conscious men the world over just either breathed a sigh of relief or exclaimed that that is by no means average).

Cool analysis but maybe you were looking at Aaron Smith the NFL player. I'd expect to see a lot of teams employing similar tactics at this world cup, especially in the warmer games.

Sergio Parisse. There are teams that hurt you up front in the opening 20 minutes to set the tone, but the Springboks keep coming at your for the full 80. I probably would yeah. Oh well too bad.

The loosehead prop made his debut for the Springboks in 2016. Super Rugby debut: Stormers v Emirates Lions, Newlands, 2011.
The McCaw–Blacks were definitely super fit, and probably were the fittest team, but I think it was more the strength of the bench and use of efficient tactics that gave the impression the team could just overwhelm the opposition in the last 20 minutes. So trying to run a Springbok pack off its feet is probably a tactical mistake and you're probably better off trying that against big Australia or England.
