JOHANNESBURG - It&39;s time for the Springboks to regroup after their shocking loss to Japan in Brighton on Saturday night.
The Cherry Blossoms took everyone by surprise when they won their opening World Cup match against South Africa.
Earlier eNCA spoke to former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers, who&39;s pointing the finger at Coach Heyneke Meyer.
We started off asking him if he was just as depressed as the rest of South Africa.
