I’m not going to say very much about Saturday’s 24-22 Springbok defeat to Wales. Hell, the way the team (and the backs in particular) played in that opening half, we deserved to take a proper hammering, so perhaps some credit is owed to the team for averting that scenario. Still – Bok rugby remains messy as always and I certainly won’t pretend to have any quick fixes up my sleeve. [...]

Fortunately, in that area, the Springboks are blessed with an able replacement in the form of outstanding young tighthead Wilco Louw. [...]
