  • @robdylan (Comment 5) :
    Still got my pc in my bedroom, and I refuse to put a tv there too – so I will be mostly away from here during the game.

    Should probably get a laptop soon anyway; but you know how it is once you take a work laptop – they expect you to be available 24-7. I’m still trying to keep a healthy balance.

    Actually, I’m re-evaluating priorities and considering whether the pursuit of success is worth the other sacrifices. You seem to have it down pat, but your situation is quite an unusual one.

    Still think we should be starting with Strauss. You know that he’s played with every other member of the starting tight five?

  • @robdylan (Comment 86) : the moment JP was tackled, an offside line was formed in line with the ball. JP passed the ball backwards and it was intercepted by an Aussie hand (not the tackler’s)… so how can that not be offside?

  • We are struggling at the rucks for 2 reasons: we have too many loose players in the T5 now that Smit, Bismark, BJ or Beast is not playing, and the ref is letting Oz get away with a lot.

    Not overly impressed with Britz so far, while Spies is looking very dangerous, except for his butter-fingers.

    Jantjies is again being caught out of position and weak in the tackle – JP covering the back very well for him.

    JDV and Frans are combining very well, but Januarie is not getting enough protection, and in addition to turn-overs, we are also getting shoddy ball to James.

    I think that a try will help us settle, and then we can grind them down – our bench is awesome.

    Shit, man… the Aussies have luxury of leaving the ball lying at the base of the ruck for 10-15 seconds while they line up. There is just no Bok pressure whatsoever

  • the boys just weren’t sharp out there… you could tell they were tired and not really up for it after the herculean effort last week.

    a week or two off, then 3 home games… we can still take it.

  • @robdylan (Comment 112) :
    Bit more than that Rob,we stuffed up with bad selections and play.

    Jantjies was very frail at the back, Britz was soft as ever, and to nitpick, Spies should be played at 7, not 8.

    Can only blame PDV for Jantjies though. Butch also had a very clueless game.

    I think Kanko, Beast, Bismark and Percy must start. And we need more accountability forbad option-taking, like selfishly holding onto the ball instead of creating opportunities.

  • CJ cost us at scrum time and also lost ball in the tackle.

    Beautiful cameo by beast and Juan was immense in this game.

    I hope Schalk and Habana are okay.

    And way too many forwards hanging about in the backline πŸ˜•

  • I cant believe we lost today. Now i know why KSA Shark doesnt rate Matfield, he is useless + JDV should take over until John gets back… Jantjes, CJ, brits, butch + steyn were poor… Matfield + Jantjes the worst of the lot.
