Rugby Champs 2016: Boks vs Wallabies


Written by Richard Ferguson (Richard Ferguson)

Tagged with : , ,

The Springboks host the Wallabies at Loftus in their penultimate match of yet another disappointing campaign.

Will it be Lambs led to slaughter (pun intended) or will we see some proper gutso from a team hurt and reeling from 3 losses on the trot? Another loss today and the Boks could very well end fourth.

The Boks started well in Brisbane a few weeks ago, will it be the Aussies who suffer in the last quarter this time? We will soon find out… kick off is at 17h05.

South Africa: 15 Pat Lambie, 14 Bryan Habana, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Juan de Jongh, 11 Francois Hougaard, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 Rudy Paige, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Oupa Mohoje, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Vincent Koch, 2 Adriaan Strauss (captain), 1 Tendai Mtawarira

Substitutes: 16 Bongi Mbonambi, 17 Steven Kitshoff, 18 Julian Redelinghuys, 19 Lood de Jager, 20 Willem Alberts, 21 Jaco Kriel, 22 Lionel Mapoe, 23 Willie le Roux

Australia: 15 Israel Folau, 14 Dane Haylett-Petty, 13 Samu Kerevi, 12 Bernard Foley, 11 Reece Hodge, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia, 8 Sean McMahon, 7 Michael Hooper, 6 Dean Mumm, 5 Adam Coleman, 4 Rob Simmons, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Stephen Moore (captain), 1 Scott Sio

Substitutes: (one to be omitted) 16 James Hanson, 17 James Slipper, 18 Tom Robertson, 19 Kane Douglas, 20 Scott Fardy, 21 Lopeti Timani, 22 Nick Phipps, 23 Tevita Kuridrani, 24 Sefa Naivalu

  • @pastorshark (Comment 88) :

    Not taking goal kick was the correct decision. Too far out, with the possibility of the Aussies running it back. Better to take the LO and play the last 2 minutes in the Aus 22 with possession.
    Then the Aussies fell back so far that they left oodles of running space, which worked out perfectly for the Boks.

  • @JD (Comment 93) : Yeah he gave us exactly what we needed short term, but where’s the planning going forward? We are never going to beat NZ with penalties and drop goals alone, we need to score tries! Morras doesn’t provide anything for the backline, stands in the pocket most of the time.

  • @Quintin (Comment 94) : For now, I think the Boks just need to get back to basics and win a few games first before trying to be flashy again. And with Morra you get exactly what you see, no flash but stability, and at the moment that is what this Bok team needs the most. This Bok team needs to get it’s confidence back before they can try and evolve their attacking game. I am not a big Morne fan, but let’s not forget, he is still the only player to have scored 31 points against the All Blacks

  • South African media has really brain washed everyone. You cannot just play a attacking game. Look at the All Blacks, they are the best team in the World, everyone thinks they never kick, yet they kick the most from all teams. The difference is kicking the correct kicks into the right spaces, timing their kicks and pulling in players from the back then kicking for the corners.
    The same can be said about the Blue Bulls team who won the Srugby champs those years. They scored more tries than anyone else. yet our media portrayed them as just kicking the ball away constantly.

    The main thing is , when its on, you go for it, when its not on DON’T GO FOR IT!

  • @KingRiaan (Comment 95) : @Uli Boelie (Comment 96) : Yup totally agree with both of you. ABs play that “click” rugby BV pointed out. Defensive unit that goes into attack mode when the opposition makes a mistake. Scoreboard pressure -> more mistakes -> more AB attacking opportunies.
    So many fans dislike Morne, but I’m pretty confident the ones who hate him the most are the opposition. I can’t think of a game between Sharks & Bulls, when Morne played for them, where he wasn’t the source of all my anxiety.
    One thing I’m certain of, is if we can’t knock over every penalty, drop kick, and conversion, we will not beat the ABs.

  • We went backwards to beat probably the shittest Wallaby team in recent history at home in the fortress of Loftus.
    Least we bullshit ourselves and buy into AC crap,we failed to score a try,and never ever looked like doing it.
    But lets not get ahead of ourselves lets wait for this week end,and judge the team after they have beaten the A.B’S

  • @KingRiaan (Comment 95) : I didn’t say we need to be flashy but you do make a good point. Maybe if the team settles a bit a change in FH later on won’t disrupt them as much. I just think we can’t beat NZ with penalties and drop goals alone as our defense will surely be breached a couple of times more by them than the Aussies did, we will need to score a try or two to stay in the game, and going forward with Morras doesn’t help that at all. That being said it was his 1st game in a long time and his tactical kicking will at least give us territory and put us in positions to score from, how we execute it with him there, I don’t know. Only thing I could see working in that case is forwards as 1st receivers or MS needs to get out of the pocket.

  • @gregkaos (Comment 97) : That is true, we’ll need our kicks to go over, every point will be vital, but IMO if we can’t score a couple of tries, we’ll never be in the game anyway as I don’t see our defense holding the AB’s to a single try like it did with the Aussies. We have to play some rugby to beat them and I don’t mean run everything. Even if we score with a driving maul or 15 phases of stamp kar in their 5m, we need to get over the line to beat them and against a weak Aussie team we didn’t look capable of doing that.

  • @The hound (Comment 98) : People can say what they want to about the Aussie game, they are currently not on form and we couldn’t score a try against them. Yes Morras played well for what he was selected to do but the AB’s will score tries, you can almost be certain of that, for us to be competitive with them we will need to score a couple ourselves. At least we have some consistency in our play with him there, just can’t see the plan going forward.
