Jacques Nienaber struck a defiant note after Saturday’s nerve-jangling 13-8 defeat to Ireland, claiming the defending champions can still win the World Cup.

“We are in this competition to win, everyone is here to win. We played against the number one team in the world and we lost by five points. “We must work at things that didn’t work and if we can fix them and have a bit of luck we can win the World Cup.” Flyhalf Manie Libbok kicked a first half penalty but missed a penalty and conversion in the second half. Faf de Klerk also failed with two penalties, one of which hit the post.
