This is what happens when you let them play and not focus on the kicking and territory game. Good performance.

Great game, though some calls could have gone either way.
That try by Am was 50/50 - but glad we got it.

A bit late... but how many warm-up games did the Boks get? The Lions got like 5 games. That doesn't seem fair?
There was the one game against Georgia (with the 2nd cancelled) as well as a game against the bulls. The SA A game vs lions was also basically a warm up game for the 'Boks.

Boom! The mongrel that is Bok rugby triumphed today, completely neutralized and tamed the Lions. It wasn't pretty but it seldom is. What a difference a neutral and impartial referee makes.

I am stoked for our win tonight. Nothing to fault really other than our slow start. The BIL didn't play all right rugby tonight, all out argy-bargy... It wasn't pretty, that is for sure. Refereeing was pretty much fair.

Happy for us.

That performance after only 2 games in 21 months was amazing. Also thought the ref was great calls aside, just clear simple communication seems to go a long way not sure why all refs can't do it

Nice to see a level playing field from the ref (mostly in the second half).

Completely destroyed them.
