  • @JD (Comment 54) : That wasnt the only problem although I agree he would have made a big difference. Front row was also bullied and if it hadnt been for the individual speed and skill of the back 3 and the tenacious tackling of the loose forwards, this would not have been a win. Also, when the passion of the first 20 mins wore off, SA looked very vulnerable.

  • @Pablo Dinero (Comment 57) : well atleast they put themselfs in a position to go for it. I think a close game like this one is just what is needed to wake-up the players and the coach. The first game was easy so maybe they thought that all the games will be easy, now they know they must work hard for the rest of the competition.

  • @rhineshark (Comment 63) : In all fairness, the Poms were way undisciplined and over aggressive. No doubt they were generally bigger and more physical than SA. Lucky the SA back 3 were more skilled and the English players tried to run over rather their opposition every time instead of popping the ball into gaps.

  • @Pablo Dinero (Comment 55) : If my uncle had t its she would be my aunt.

    England are a good side, but they were more focussed on trying to bully the boks in the 1st 20 minutes, so SA were full value for their win. Some big lads in that England side, very impressed with the winger, very high workrate and strong runner.

    Pollard not a shadow of the player he was in 2012. A season with the Bulls, and all his flair coached out of him lol.

  • @rhineshark (Comment 58) : They were practise games, and in both matches the boks comprehensively outscored the argies in terms of tries. The empasis was clearly on getting there structure together fr the tournament.

    England have a very big pack of forwards. I would be a bit less critical of our scrums.

    Agree re the 11, though the centres were also useful, as was the FB
