I cannot believe my eyes reading some of the twaddle being written. Some are suggesting this mediocre ab side is the best in history. Bwahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaha sidesplitting stuff!!!!
How has this happened!! Well first courtesy of BL and a South African ref nogal (Mnr Craig Joubert)t hey burgled the world cup. Nobody can dispute this.
Next they got smashed in Dunedin and were only saved by a shocking display of goal kicking and bungles opportuniteis amounting to roughly 40 points.
The ab pack is second rate as was shown in Dunedin and in Soweto where even though the Boks ran out of gas (due largely to poor player management) dominated teritory and possession and made the wee abs look like boys in the first half.
All great sides have a number of great players. Who then are the great ab players currently in this squad?
Forwards. Well there are none. Mcaaw is very obviously over the hill. Read? Well ask yourself what happened to Read in Dunedin. He was a big zero. There is nothing special in the front row and nothing in the second row. The forwards are at best call average. Would any of the abs make the Bok pack? I would not want even one.
In the backs who are the greats. I can only see one and that is Dan Carter. Nonu is fading, the two wings are nothing to much to worry about - certainly JP and Habana are better. Good fullback but great? Conrad is is clever but what else? Note how this great backline with all these greats was shut down in Dunedin.
They have a nice scummie but not a great.
No this overhyped side is benefiting from the injury situation both Oz and Boks are exeriencing and the big rebuilding phase the Boks are undergoing.
We from our part need to become more professional - eg player management which Mallet was on about after the Oz/ Argies game etc.
But this being touted as the great side!Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha very funny stuff. Please lets keep it real oaks and not do past great sides the indignity of lumping this lot with them. The abs are on the skids and fate has intervened to prolong the myth created by a burgled wc win.
Beeno the realist - popping some rediculously large bubbles.
