Boks versus abs
October 06, 2012, 17:55:03

Not too bad but why did Goosen stay on and only succeeded in gifting the abs 7 points!!!!

Pity also about his 2 missed kicks - one hitting the post.

Must not let the game get too loose.

To me its clear though leave Goosen at home for year end tour. The guy is not physically ready. Sorry but he is too young, Lots of conditioning needed.

Well done to Elton for slotting those two kicks.

...Whats the writing on the wall say now Bean Brain....ABs Rule Supreme or maybe....ABs reinforce their World Champions status....Boks lose despite the benefit of  a 10 to 1 penalty count...NZ 32 Boks sux teen...Never mind Bean Brain you should be honoured because you just got beaten by the best......

Congrats to abs.

Bok forwards were not too bad but backline at sea and defence not good. We played better at Dunedin. We had big possession and territory advantage but apart from Habana not much was on. Also leaving points on field.

 JDV just told TV the Boks were improving! Must have been watching a different game than me.

As I predicted, Boks started with a hiss and ended with a whimper. Looked absolutely clueless in the last 20 mins. I would sack the entire Bok backline with the exception of Habana as their defence was appalling.

With a huge penalty count in their favour and Dagg in the bin for 10, you won't get a better chance to beat the ABs.

Beeno, imagine what we would've won by if we got all our kicks! Sound familiar?

 that is highly unusual for you Beeno - are you sure you don't have a fever? You're usually blaming ref/BL/touch touches/ball boys/weather right about now ! mmmmmm Beeno congradulating the opposition, a rare event indeed!

The ref made a few mistakes but what was indeed significant was that the abs were penalised and finally yellow carded. Man given us this sort of ref how many lost tests would we have won.

Yes we have some problems but also things that are working. My expectation was things to start lifting off 2013 and hit top gear in 2014

No l complaints re the ref. We won aspects of the game but our defence was bad and we did again not kick to well for posts and flufffed some opportunities that were created.

Boks are still putting it together and on the rise. I am not too fussed.

 we're not too fussed ourselves. We're still putting it together. Our expectation is to hit Top Gear in 2015!

 All Blacks still working on a few things, hakwa yea should have new blood by next WC and by that stage be primed again to take on the world. NZ is a rugby machine that produces rugby men off a conveyor belt. Better luck next time,  SA team needs more tests under its belt but still a tough competitor and always entertaining to watch. Well done McCaw on winning 100thtest....not many around who can say that.
