What an immense effort from the Boks, great comeback after Albany!! Great test match!! On a par with the Aussie/NZ game!! 11/10 for effort! 11/10 for commitment!! 11/10 for pride in the jersey!!! 11/10 for guts and sheer determination!!! 11/10 for Marx!! 11/10 for Eben!!! 11/10 for everyone!!!

Boys, this was a team effort the entire country should be proud of!!

That's the closest the All Blacks have come to losing this season and surely their toughest game of the year?!! But they are invincible!! Alas...

Dead rubber game for NZ and away from home and they still win.

But hey #priderestored is all that matters.
Have you seen the support for the ABs in Cape Town?!
This was like playing "at home" for them ;)

Jip this always happens, individuals brilliance from a few players keeps us in it and now AC can tell the world how awesome he is and keep his job.

Clearly we know nothing. Panelists saying that Garces had a great game with the whistle. *shrug*

He did. He blew it like a professional.

His decisions were up to **** but he really knew how to blow that whistle.

Its all on the coaches and they're stifling players. They're still game-planning like its 2007 and I can assure you, they're going to do it again this weekend and they're going to ship points again. Not that you can change much in a week though, its too late and kicking is all they can do.


I don't know when last I saw a Bok team show that much composure when moving the ball through the hands. Some direct running as well, not just crabbing. Ross was getting the ball out quickly as well.

I think another BIG difference from last time was the improvement in the locking performance. Etzebeth played really well, and de Jager, too.

Really held the lineouts well and were bashing around the field.

What does South African, Italian and Scottish rugby supporters have in common.............


Lose within 5 points and we're all happy.
