  • So, Italy managed to beat us by 2 points. But today they only managed to beat Tonga by 1 point. That puts things into perspective. :cool:

  • I would say another lost opportunity, but there havent been enough opportunities for it to be considered “another”. You know things are bad when only about 5 of the boks on the field would make the current Scottish team…

  • @benji (Comment 73) : Sorry i have to disagree. Yes we shouldnt expect them to produce miracles but the numerous and constant errors during the game is on them im afraid. And thats the problem with SA rugby, everyone looking to pass the blame elsewhere instead of standing up and taking responsibilities. We have a bunch of whimps involved currently and it shows on the field.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 76) : De Klerk and Jaantjies were terrible,totally clueless. and both looked terrified,Combrink and Venter were just as bad neither could catch a cold.Carr was like a high school boy, the Amish was dreadful, hell Bekker was banished from Bok rugby on performances100 times better.PSDT ‘s problem is that he thinks he needs to do everyone’s job, and Straus ideas on captaincy were all taken from the manual written by the captain of the Oceanus.
    Jokes aside to everyone who is advocating that we only field locally based players, this is the level of rugby we are going be playing and we should look forward to games against Namibia,Romania,Georgia and Canada

    That French side, if they can keep their heads right, could still cause England and Ireland some big headaches come the Six Nations.
