We will always respect them.“It was an era that opened up doors for us. We really appreciate all of them, and with the passing of James Small, we had him on the back as well against Australia.”The 31-man Springbok World Cup squad has 11 black players, including Kolisi.Current Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus, who played international rugby with Williams, said the jersey tribute was appropriate in a World Cup clash against fierce rivals New Zealand.Additional reporting by AFP
