Lmao, typical salt from the Kiwis

Don't think the article was bad except the piggyback on the ref part. Still best game we have played since world cup final especially the first 25 min of the second half

1. Saw that high tackle on De Allende...how on earth that wasn't picked up is anyone's guess.
2. Saw Frans turn over the ball (MacKenzie deserved to have that stupid mullet tackled off him!), but why the ref can't ask for a TV ref opinion is anyone's guess.
3. De Allende's deliberate knock-down was anything but. Nothing like de Klerk's from a few games ago.

The All Blacks are reffed to a completely different rule book, and then we have another one. Pathetic. Anyways, we won and we need to build on that!

Well, finally the Bok forwards ran like demons with the ball like I was hoping. That Mbonambi run that was almost a try is exactly the type of rugby the Boks have always played. Phenomenal effort from the forwards.

Even at the end of the game, Kitshoff was running toward the line with some leg pumps that must have been energy sapping. Etzebeth was great. Can't remember a time when Retallick has looked so meek as in the last two tests.

How good was Francois Steyn?

I just love that guy in big games. RWC 2007, Lions series 2009, and All Blacks 2009. Pity his career has been so curtailed at the international level because he could have been on 150 caps by now.

He doesn't lose to Italy, or Japan, or lose by 57 points to NZ. He is a big-game player.
