WATCH: Siya Kolisi loses key battle to Sam Cane ahead of the Rugby World Cup

Injured Springbok captain Siya Kolisi remains a key member within the South African set-up as they continue their build-up to Rugby World Cup 2023.

Having lost comprehensively to New Zealand in their recent Rugby Championship match-up, the Boks are looking for positivity to get back on track.

Whilst round one of 2023 went to the men in black, South Africa have a chance to get one back when the two sides meet in a pre-World Cup fixture at Twickenham.

Due to the fixture being at a neutral venue, it should mimic a World Cup style atmosphere.

As ever with a neutral venue, there are several logistics to be worked out prior to kick-off.

One of these details is who will get to utilise the home team facilities when the two collide at the home of English Rugby.

Of course, there is only one way to settle a dispute of this magnitude and it doesn’t matter whether you are five years old or an international rugby captain. That is of course to engage in an intense battle of rock, paper, scissors.

Possibly due to rust having been injured for months, Kolisi was not his usual sharp self and slipped up to a match fit Cane.

Thus, the All Blacks will have the privilege of being the home side when the two teams meet in South West London in late August.
