  • Try Aus!! :shock: We didn’t contest lineout on the right hand side and defense caught at 6s and 7s and Ashley cover goes over in the right hand corner.

    Gits converts.

    0-7 after 3 mins.

  • Boks slowly composing themmselves after that initial onslaught.

    Aus give away a penalty after blocking a chasing Japes. Dead-Eye Dick slots it from 44m. :cool: Geez he’s good. I’d say on a par with Monty.

    6-7 12 mins

  • VERY even contest at the breakdown at the moment with Boks just edging it at the mo. Aus have started fluffing a few passes and resulting in unforced errors.

    Boks get another penalty after a ruck infringement. DED gets another.

    9-7 14 mins.

    George Smith is complaining about the Ferret sealing it off after Rolland blows them up for ACTUALLY doing it. Replay shows no such infringement.

  • @robdylan (Comment 109) : Yeah…I was a little frustrated with the boring rugby played. They could and should have played a lot more rugby and if they did, I reckon a 4 try bonus point would have been a certainty. It’s not like we have poor outside backs!

  • Interesting statistic: Ruan Pienaar and Morne Steyn have now both scored 83 test points.

    Pienaar after 32 tests and 12 starts and Steyn after only 6 tests and 3 starts.

    On top of that Steyn’s points came against top 5 opponents only. No easy games against Scotland, Italy or Samoa to scew the numbers.

    Dude, you really need to up your game. :wink:

    In how many tests was Ruan the designated (sp?) kicker??

    No one is denying that Steyn is a better kicker than Ruan… its just that he can’t get a backline away like Ruan does. :roll:

  • @wpw (Comment 143) :
    The answer is at least 7 tests. That includes the recent ones we know about and an earlier game against NZ (23 June 2007) in which be landed a penalty kick. Happy? :smile:

    15 of his points (3 tries) came against Namibia and Tonga.

    The only thing that really matters is points on the scoreboard and in that regard MS can produce.

    Oh and before I forget.

    GGGRrrrreat job PDivvie.
    He needs to engineer just 1 road win to secure the 3N and as a Bok coach he will be on par with the great Jake White. :lol:
