97 Lions tour of SA

I just watched the highlights the other day of the 97 lions tour to south africa. I can't believe that we actually lost that series. They had the entire springbok line up. The boks completely dominate the lions accept for 2 key mistakes. 1. Lack of goal kicker and 2. Matt Dawsons dummy pass.
Just looking at our pack and back, i just don't know how we lost that.
We had Os, Drostke, Venter, Teichman and in the backs we had players such as Joost, Hennie Le Roux, James Small, Andre Snyman, Andre Joubert, Henry Honiball.
So my question is, is it the coach or the players? I see the same pattern over the years, we have great players but a coach that doesn't know what to do with them or a coach with know players but some how get the best out of them.
