Springboks Reach Semi-Finals After Victory Over Japan

The 2019 Rugby World Cup trophy is now tantalisingly within reach

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 20 October 2018 – The South African rugby team has edged closer to the IRB Rugby World Cup finals. The tournament in Japan is the first to be held in Asia and outside the traditional heartland of rugby union. Across the country, the nation has been glued to TV screens, hoping to see the treasured trophy return to South Africa once again. Samsung South Africa, the official electronics partner to the Springboks, has urged South Africans to continue their overwhelming support for the team.

Cambridge Mokanyane, Chief Marketing Officer at Samsung South Africa, says, “At Samsung, we understand how pride and passion fuels success and are firmly backing the Springboks in their quest to become world champions again at the 2019 IRB Rugby World Cup. We are now even closer to this goal”

Most South Africans will not make it to Japan for the tournament, however new innovations in TV allow many to witness the action and capture the feeling of being there. An incredible example of this is Samsung’s 2019 QLED TV line-up, which features screen size options, from 55” to 98” to suit the needs of every home and lifestyle. With more than 33 million pixels, the ground-breaking QLED 8K has stunning picture quality, dazzling colours from every angle, exciting new design elements and intuitive smart TV upgrades. All of which points to an incredible match day seat. That experience will, of course, be amplified even more with victory in the finals.

Samsung – the power behind the Boks.
