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.
