  • We knock it on in the tackle, England kicks it out and we have a lineout. Beatiful break my Pollard. Ends in nothing as we knock. Pollard eventually misses a drop kick attempt. 22 kick off.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 60) : Did you not watch the game today?!

    When he needed to stand up and be counted, he disappeared with the rest of the team.

    Throw him into test rugby now, and his future will be ruined…take him on the end of year tour to carry tackle bags…I mean, learn the team environment….then next year he’ll be ready to play backup to Lambie at the wc ;-)

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 61) : Nope I didn’t, had to work, but believe it or not I don’t pick the Bok team ;-) . Anyway, one bad game does not a bad player make as we’re all aware, especially one so young.

    I have this suspicion that Marnitz Boshoff features below Pollard in Meyer’s flyhalf queue so if Meyer had the option he’d rather get Pollard into the setup and used to the structures in preparation for the World Cup. I reckon Meyer’s flyhalves for the WC (should they be available) are Steyn, Lambie and Pollard with Goosen probably seen as first backup.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 61) : @vanmartin (Comment 63) : Come to think of it though, Meyer may just opt to start with Ruan “let’s run to the sideline” Pienaar at flyhalf with Pollard on the bench. Or I’m just way off base

  • I hope we realise once again that we can’t win matches without the ball!!

    We reverted to the kick chase far too often when we were actually lethal with ball in hand!! Pollard looks so much better playing Honiball-like flat at the gain line taking them on…pollard has great talent but can work on decision making. Why snap a drop on the back foot going backwards, after you had just been in front of the posts 2 phases before??

    The scrum half was absolutely terrible and the fact that he wasn’t subbed raised questions over management!!!

    A game we should have won no doubt

  • @pienaar111 (Comment 67) : yes Bokkies could have won the game. Was thinking a drop goal was on when with time almost over they had a couple of phases in the 22 but he waited to long and just missed the difficult chance. Still it was a good showing by the Bokkies and a couple of these youngsters could be huge in the future.
