Predictions for SA vs England
June 22, 2012, 09:56:26

I know a lot of folks are predicting an easy win for the Boks tomorrow, but I don't think they are going to have it all their own way. I am predicting another win by the Boks, but unfortunately, not by much.

 

Boks: 29 and England: 25

Seems we are all more a less on the same page. Close one, but with the Boks taking it in the end. I wonder what the odds ae for the game? Not that I am a betting man, but it would be interesting.

We have won the series, the Bok side is weaker. England will want the win more than us. I feel England could sneak this one.

Frans, Lambie and Alberts are big losses. Meyer has got the selection wrong by including Aplon and Olivier and retaining the useless Morne

JP at 15, Mvovo on the wing, Jean at 12, JJ at 13 and Jantjies at 10 would have been my call

Game will come down to how Steyn kicks for poles. We have played with fire the last two tests with his errant strikes - if he kicks well we win comfortably. If not, England stays close, gains some belief and has the motivation in the end to take it.

Really hope that M Steyn finds his form ...... and soon. When he's on and we have Fransie for the long range bombs we are so much better.

Have to agree with oimatey. It will come down to how many Steyn misses.

Good point oimatey, with M Steyn and F Steyn in the team and kicking well, any penalty on their side of our 10 metre line, is in a kickable position for us.

Hey, who are you and what have you done with the real Hakwa??? Just kidding mate. Got to say, it is nice to see the Boks playing something a little different. I must just gloat a little, I said, in arguing with many on this site, that Meyer was a smart bugger, and that he would not automatically just play the Bulls rugby they played when they won their first S12 Title in 2007. Instead we see the Boks playing an entertaining brand of rugga, and they are getting good results with it. Consistency is a bit up and down, but that will ge sorted out with time.

 

I'd just like to take this opportunity to say, I CALLED IT!!!
