  • @robdylan (Comment 5) :

    Kolisi on…less power and pace in Kolisi…

    Not the best loose trio for test level…
    Marcel not been up to scratch, Spies just there…Kolisi won’t make test side for most tier 1 countries…
    Let’s hope our pacey backs pull us through…

  • It seems that, the more time the Springboks spend together with HM, the worse they become.

    Last year was the same, started off reasonably well against England and it deteriorated from there.

    Anyways, bring on the Sharks boardroom politics, much more excitement happening there.

If it was a Sanzar ref they would have received lots of yellow cards and the viking would have been the first to go. The game chanced after the yellow card as they were afraid of getting another yellow for all the breakdown penalties.

  • @JD (Comment 63) : You know who else plays exactly the same? The kiwis, that’s their whole game plan, tons of off the ball pulling and holding back, taking defenders out at the ruck, running blocking lines.

    They’re just much better at getting away with it. The Springboks will have to learn to deal with it, it is obvious that certain refs are unable to identify it on the field and we can’t always be the team blaming the ref when a team’s negative tactics puts us on the back foot.

  • @JD (Comment 63) : looked they might have played negative ragga but they got away with it with that said so what did you think of your defense cause the ref had nothing to do with that they ran at our 9 and 10 channel and went over the advantage line time and again we can be glad some of there passes was shocking if we play like this against the AB’S and aussies well i’l leave that thought with you

  • You can see that even the Scots have some real back line coaching (and not some nepotist attack coach plus a Vodacom cup level back line coach) – as their outside backs looked a lot better than ours. Then again our defense alignment was atrocious plus our forwards got completely out-muscled at the breakdown. The Scots lived on the edge at the rucks, and the ref allowed them to get away with it.

    I am afraid Marcel is not offering much this year – Kolisi played a lot more intelligently in his debut.

    The only shining light for me was seeing Bismarck bullying the Scots (ripping balls away at will) and having a decent performance at line out time.

  • JDV offers just one trick at 12 – bash it up and go to ground. There is no inventiveness in this back line – only Le Roux trying some fairly dangerous stuff to open up spaces. That long pass to Basson just begged to be intercepted.

  • @Ludz (Comment 64) :

    Don’t get me wrong…was not bad mouthing Kolisi…I was referring to our loose trio as a whole…they ALL were poor at the ruck…even Kolisi had a open ball and could only win a scrum…a loose trio winning m-o-m just shows how crap we were…even their defensive positioning was poor…all made the tackles when in front of them…but Scots broke the line a lot and only tackled behind advantage line…
    The Scots loose trio works us over at the ruck…and we can cry negative rugby…but that is exactly what we been expecting from Brussow and Burger all these years and loved them for getting it right so many times…

    We were sooooo much better when Bizzy and Coenie came on…

    And I am sorry…we cannot start with Jannie and Beast…we need to start with Trevor and Coenie…much better…and Beast can come on as impact player…
    Even Strauss was off…was much better 2nd half…and had a good few runs…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 35) : If you cant see the value Jannie adds then you probably played wing or spectator whenever you played rugby :lol: . He is our best tight head and may even be the best tight head in world rugby. Yesterday he was one of the better forwards ,his work rate was high.

    It concerns me that Meyer highlighted the breakdowns as an area he had focused on in preseason and so far it has been poor. The defensive structures are a joke ;shameful that a group of our supposed finest players don’t have an inkling on how to make good gut calls on defense.

    One or two things are obvious to me :1.We have a few passengers in the side ,no need for me to point them out again. 2.Some players look as if they don’t understand their roles or they just arent doing their duties ;Etzebeth was poor yesterday-his body position in mauls and rucks was useless and he doesn’t clean enough or well enough and Coetzee looks caught between being a carrier and fetch he doesn’t do either well enough. 3.We look poorly drilled 4.Our game plan is archaic and not fit for the test arena.

    I agree with everything you say…except for the Jannie comment…
    He is not good in the scrum…poor at ruck and misses tackles…not even a good carrier of the ball…
    However…I am listening…please enlighten me on what value he ads…and to help me relate…be kind and refference to games…
