  • Great play by the Boks, Cronje clean through but can’t get a final pass away…turnover and the a BREATH-TAKING counter attack by the All Blacks. Finally breaks down with a handling error. Wow!

    He probably did not aim for the chin, but he did aim with is elbow and it was late and it did connect with Sopoaga’s chin.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 77) : The problem is the Boks need to play out of their skins to still loose by 1 point against a All Black team that was knocked out of their stride by a physical Bok side.

  • A much better performance from the Boks…perhaps a bit unlucky but when you used to winning like the All Blacks you do tend to get the rub of the green. Very harsh red card at the end there. A lot of people complain how he handled the rucks but i like when its a contest there so i quite liked that. Louw at 8 looked quite lost. Psdt was good but De Jager no where so we almost played with 2 less in the pac. Marx was very good as was Wilco Louw when he came on. I also thought we looked more dangerous when Pollard was at 10.

  • Some interesting questions now arise…how many of these Boks will play CC before end of year tour? will any more overseas guys be picked for that tour? will coetzee stick with these same players and combos for the NH? Will CC form psuh any players into selection frame?

  • @SheldonK (Comment 82) : I think it could be quiete possible that the guys that were called up into the squad and that were released again will be part of the touring squad. I saw Curwin, Dan, Thomas, Sbu at Newlands in their Bok gear so I think they are very much part of the set up as it stands.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 83) : I feel you could be right. Coetzee will probably go with local is lekker..but then it makes no sense picking Francois Louw. I still feel that the End of Year tours are a great way to see what the guys playing in the NH can offer as they are prime in the middle of their season where as our guys are tired.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 78) : Ja look. I think the game was probably the best form I’ve seen from them for a while. My comments are not really against boks just this over eager media that also do their share of building expectations and then when things aren’t really what their and even bok fans built it up to be they do a 180. Safer to say boks showed up for the match, not suggest they’ve turned a corner. Cause that haven’t. ..yet.

  • The Bok team id like to see play the first tour game:
    1. Kitshoff 2. Marx 3. Louw 4. Etzebeth 5. PSDT 6. Kolisi 7. DuPreez 8. Whiteley 9. Cronje 10. Pollard 11. Nkosi 12. Serfontein 13. Kriel 14.Am 15. Bosch
    Bench: Beast, Chilliboy,Nyakane ,Botha, Kwagga, DuPreez, Schreuder, Jantjies,Venter
    Just going with local is lekker. Quite slim in terms of fir tightheads and flyhalves.
