He has been bringing in several of their players to give the English something different to train against and one man who has been there throughout is Genki Okoshi.Well after their final training session the England players bid farewell to what appears to be a good luck charm in Genki, by gifting him a shirt signed by the team as you can see below. The Suntory Sungoliath scrum-half was helping the English in their training sessions.

(Scrumhalf) Genki (Okoshi) has been our boy. He has been with us probably the most amount of time. You can just see how excited they are to come and train. It is slightly different as well training against people that you don’t train against every day, it makes you concentrate a bit more in training, definitely.” Five Of The Best England v South Africa Matchescenter_img Billy Vunipola said; “It’s nice to have different people and different energy levels. We have had a few bumps and knocks but to have people like Genki in, not just to help with training but with the emotions of the group has been great.

Previously South Africa emerged victorious in 2007 but Eddie Jones and defence coach John Mitchell are preparing for anything the Springboks throw at them.“They play in a particular way, but you must always be prepared for anything that comes at us. They have a very clever (No.) 9, who is sharp,” Mitchell said.“Polly (flyhalf Handre Pollard) is in really, really good form. They have four second-rowers who love winning the gain line. They have their own armory. It’s exciting. Last week (against New Zealand), we dealt with a lot of speed, a lot of footwork. This week they are certainly going to be a team that is more direct.”No doubt the training sessions England have had with players like Genki have allowed them to but their best preparations into fruition.Follow our Rugby World Cup homepage which we update regularly with news and features.
