Ellis Jenkins is man of the match, which I think is fair. He's been very good.
We beat France, we beat Scotland and rightly should have beaten England but for the ref - and it wasn't that long ago we beat the All Blacks.I have ZERO hope for the RWC. The Boks are just bad.
It's not about losing, it's how we lose(play). We pick fancy quick stepping fast wingers but don't give then the ball. We pick a big no.12 that runs sideways and never runs as the opposition no.10. We ask the no.9 to kick but we don't play a good kicking no.9.International rugby is much closer than it was just a couple of years ago.
South Africa should get away from the assumption that we HAVE to win every game against teams that we historically (10 - 90 years ago) won easily.

Dyantyi scored six tries in his first eight Tests for the Boks - including two in the famous win against the All Blacks in Wellington - and finished his debut season with 13 caps.
Dyantyi beat Ireland wing Jordan Larmour and New Zealand prop Karl Tu’inukuafe to the award
