South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus feels vindicated in his side’s early arrival in Japan for the Rugby World Cup, even though it will mean its stay in the country will stretch to nine weeks if it makes the Nov. 2 final.

Erasmus is keen for the Springboks to soak up the conditions ahead of the tournament, which included a 41-7 warm-up victory over Japan a week ago, and does not believe there will be a “cabin fever” element to contend with later in the tournament.
