Springboks remain at first place without playing even one test

Sunday’s Autumn Nations Cup clash at Twickenham between England and France was the final Test of the Covid-19 disrupted year and so Test rugby is done for year 2020. The coolest part is that our national rugby team, the Springboks still reigns supreme even without playing one single Test over the past 12 months.
