2020 is set to bring about the dawn of the next generation of South African rugby stars, writes Quintin van Jaarsveld.

With Rassie Erasmus at the helm, Springbok rugby rose from the ashes in 2019. The men in Green and Gold captured their maiden Rugby Championship crown and went on to win the World Cup for the third time in Japan.

All is well again; the painful rehabilitation process is complete. Some of the bleakest years in South African rugby history are in the rear-view mirror and the Springboks are on top of the world once again.

As is often the case, the global showpiece signalled the end of an era. Key members of the squad Erasmus assembled and moulded into world-beaters over the last two-and-a-half years either bid farewell or will continue their careers abroad.

Many will still be around for the 2021 British and Irish Lions series and the World Cup in France two years later, so it’s not a case of Erasmus, as director of rugby, and whoever takes over as coach having to start from scratch, but the ever-increasing exodus of top talent to big-spending overseas clubs will see a new wave of youngsters sweep over Super Rugby next year.

The future looks bright and the following uncapped stars are chief among those who have the potential to rise to Springbok stardom in the years to come.
