Here we are for the last game of week four of the 2023 Rugby World Cup. In this Pool B clash, fans will be treated to South Africa v Tonga. I expect there will be a lively crowd at the Stade de Marseille, with all of the action kicking off at 8 p.m. IST.

Luke Pearce, Matthew Carley, and Christophe Ridley will be our match officials on the pitch for the day, and Brett Cronan will be safe and sound in the bunker as the TMO.

South Africa and Tonga have met only the twice on the rugby field - in 1997 and 2007. The Springboks were at the fore in both matches, winning 74-10 and 30-25 respectively. Do Tonga have a hope in hell of making it third time lucky or will the defending world champions make minced meat of their Pacific island opponents? Without further ado, I give you my South Africa v Tonga prediction.

🔍 South Africa v Tonga Winner Prediction

This is going to be another RWC mismatch, giving we're pitting the rugby equivalent of a man in a poncho with a six shooter against a supersonic fighter jet armed to the teeth with long-range missiles.

South Africa have won five out of six of their last international matches, including two impressive Rugby World Cup wins against Scotland, 18-3 and against Romania, 76-0 before being pipped to the post by missed kicks against Ireland, 8-13. As for Tonga, they have only rattled off two wins from their last six tests, having slumped in their RWC campaign against Ireland, 59-16 and against Scotland, 45-17.

At the end of the day, I don't think there are many true rugby fans that believe Tonga will pull off some kind of miracle this week - especially considering that the Springboks will want to unleash all of the tears and bitter screams after last week's loss on the next team to cross their path. This doesn't need to be a South Africa v Tonga prediction for the winner; this is a question of by how many the world champions will annihilate their foes. I think South Africa will storm this by 30 points.

✔️ South Africa v Tonga Betting Tips

1️⃣ Match Winner: South Africa to Win

My two cents is that I don't fancy winning two cents from betting €10 on Ireland to win at 1.002 at Betway. If that's your sort of thing, you do you, but you won't see me betting on it.

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: Tonga to Win (+39.5)

30 points to South Africa, by my thinking, means that the Pacific islanders could well win with the additional handicap points. I would be happy to back Tonga to win (+39.5) at 2.05 at Betway for my handicap winner.
