Wales flanker Justin Tipuric expects South Africa to be pretty pumped up for Saturdays clash at the Principality Stadium. Cheap Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys .The Springboks have arrived in Cardiff for their final game of a dismal year that has seen them suffer seven defeats.The sorry chapter includes a home loss to Ireland, an historic first defeat against Italy, a 37-point drubbing by England and a record home reversal against world champions New Zealand, while they were also beaten in Argentina.Such a sequence has cranked up the pressure on head coach Allister Coetzee, while South African Rugby Union president Mark Alexander issued a strongly-worded statement immediately following defeat by Italy in Florence when he talked about deeply worrying aspects of the performances in 2016.While Wales are seeking a third successive win against all opponents - albeit a week after substitute Sam Davies drop-goal got them out of jail against Japan - they have only toppled South Africa twice in 31 previous meetings.It is a massive game against South Africa, Tipuric said. They will be pretty pumped up this weekend. They are a wounded animal at the minute and are coming under a lot of pressure at home. They will be coming here and fighting for everything.There is pressure in any international game. If we win this weekend it will equal the most successful autumn campaign ever (for Wales), but it wont be easy. We know we have to go out there and perform.If Tipuric is involved on Saturday, then he will be braced for South Africas inevitable physical onslaught, which is unlikely to vary from their tried and tested script despite injuries sidelining key performers like Eben Etzebeth, Francois Louw and possibly Willem Alberts.They look like they are trying to beef up the pack even more, which is hard to do when you are that big! Tipuric added. Francois Louw was a big loss for them and (Marcell) Coetzee too, but they have some really good back-rowers in reserve.Wales have come in for some fierce flak during an autumn campaign that began with them suffering a heaviest home defeat for 10 years when Australia triumphed 32-8, before narrow victories were achieved against Argentina and Japan, although the latter result posed way more questions than it provided answers.We are trying to get the ball a little bit wider, but it has to be at the right time and in the right areas, Tipuric said. It takes time. We have been used to a system for a long time now, and were going through a process and trying to get everyone on the same page. Hopefully, it doesnt take much longer to get used to. We are getting there.Cheap Darrell Stuckey Jersey . "We have always prided ourselves on the way we play defence.

The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1.Britains Robbie Grabarz bounced back from almost two years of injury hell to win high jump silver at the World Indoor Championships in Portland. The 28-year-old, who questioned his future in the sport after a knee operation in May 2014 left him jumping, in his words, like a 16-year-old girl, produced a first-time clearance at 2.33 metres to make a welcome return to the podium.Grabarz, who won Olympic bronze, European gold and the Diamond Race crown during a memorable season in 2012, could not have timed his return to form better, with the Rio Games coming up in August.

Grabarz celebrates his silver medal on the podium Grabarzs team-mate Chris Baker saw his hopes ended by a best clearance of 2.29m and finished eighth.Erik Kynard, who took silver ahead of Grabarz at London 2012, this time finished with bronze, losing out to the Briton on countback.Grabarz said: Im ecstatic, Ive lost my voice, I just cant quite believe it to be honest.If someone said Id get that result two years ago I wouldnt have believed it, I would have bitten their hand off.They [the days of competing at the top] looked very far away and that just made me train harder. To get the reward here of being able to compete with these guys and get a medal makes it great.Before Grabarzs glorious comeback, though, the day had been going horribly wrong for Britain, with Lynsey Sharp failing to make it past the heats of the 800m and Dina Asher-Smith forced to pull out of the 60m final as a precaution due to a minor hamstring reaction after her semi-final run.
