The Boks are making the final preparations for their Farewell Test against Argentina at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday, with Proudfoot excited about the prospects and an appearance at Loftus.
Saturday’s match against Argentina kicks off at 17h05 and tickets are available from www.ticketpro.co.za and the Loftus Versfeld ticket office.
“This is as important as the first game against Australia because it continues our evolution as a team,” said Proudfoot.
“We spent three weeks in Pretoria for our build up before the Castle Lager Rugby Championship started and this has almost been our home for this campaign for us.
“So the guys are really excited to be back in Pretoria and are pleased to be at Loftus. It’s great.”
The Springboks will name their team for the match on Wednesday, and although the Rugby Championship has been won, Proudfoot said the team’s work was far from complete.
“Winning the Championship was never a goal it was a result of executing our planning,” said Proudfoot.
“To be honest, I’ve barely thought about the title – it was never about the winning the Championship it was about doing the right things in the way to get to the World Cup.
“When we get on the plane we will have 31 guys who are fit and ready to play, with eight or nine guys at home who are as well prepared to step into the position if they are needed."
