(SOUNDBITE) (English) SOUTH AFRICA HEAD COACH, RASSIE ERASMUS, ON CHESLIN KOLBE, SAYING: "We are quite healthy in the back three positions.

But Chelsin is world class.

He's showed it whenever he's played for us, no matter if he's slotted in at 15 or he's played wing.

Everybody knows he's got that xfactor and against England, with the way they defend, you know, its something we definitely need." 2.

WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SOUTH AFRICA HEAD COACH, RASSIE ERASMUS, ON REGAINING THE SUPPORT OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN SUPPORTERS, SAYING: "I think the only failure would be if we don't pitch up and give everything.

I think that would be the only failure.

We see it as, when we started this whole journey, 18 months ago when we started, twenty five or twenty four test matches ago, we said the main things is how we play rugby, you know.

The eventual spin off that when we win, people will start supporting us again and talking about us and help us with team selections and criticise and that's what we want.

Then you know South Africans are supporting you again, when they start engaging again." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SPRINGBOKS WINGER, CHESLIN KOLBE, ON HIS FAITH GUIDING HIM BACK TO FITNESS FOR THE FINAL, SAYING: "I'm a firm believer.

I believe in my faith.

I know God has different plans for different people and he's healed me and he's made sure that, I wasn't for the semi-final but now for the final.

So, my faith is really strong and I just leave everything up into gods hands because he's the ones that sets up plans for us in different paths." STORY: Cheslin Kolbe has returned to the Springboks starting line-up for the Rugby World Cup final against England in Yokohama on Saturday (November 2) after recovering from an ankle injury that kept him out of the semi-final.

Kolbe, an important attacking weapon for the Springboks, missed their pool match against Canada with an ankle problem and had to leave the field in the latter stages of the quarter-final against Japan before sitting out the 19-16 last-four victory over Wales.

He was replaced by Sbu Nkosi for the semi-final last Sunday but head coach Rassie Erasmus has named the 26-year-old Toulouse winger in the starting 15 for Saturday's showpiece.

Erasmus has again opted for a 6-2 split among the replacements, picking an extra forward, which suggests the Springboks will stick with their confrontational and physical approach.

Captain Siya Kolisi will earn his 50th test cap in the final, where he will be expected to have to deal with England's twin opensides Tom Curry and Sam Underhill.

Replacement scrum-half Herschel Jantjies, who was named on Wednesday in World Rugby's Breakthrough Player of the Year award shortlist, and the versatile Frans Steyn are the only two back replacements.

1995 and 2007 winners South Africa are hoping to be crowned world champions for a joint-record third time, while England are searching for their second World Cup triumph, 16 years after winning in Australia.
