Yep I am l looking foward to this one.  Currently Meyer has a loss record of 18.75%. Win this and its 17.65% 

Boks are on the rise!

Am i making you look bad Bean Brain? Sorry about that .

Not like you not to want to talk about refs. I thought that was your favourite subject.

 

Good luck against the number 10th ranked team in the world.

Looks as if Argies have the wood on Bok scrum at moment, but expect Boks to ramp it up And Beeno "the premier game", you surely meant the premier secondary game of RC didn't you.

 What a difference re the Argies.  You would hardly beleive they are the same side.

Bok forwards need to up the ante and get stuck in. Dont seem to be on fire.

Pity Walsh and touch judge allowed the Puma to take out Strauss and did not penalise Argies who should not have got that first try. I see Mallet has confirmed this.

 This is more like the Argentina we were all expecting to see. Their game plan to not kick out is working and chase is good. Morne keeping us in the game - rock solid kicking under pressure so far.

Given this is the official thread and your exacting standards i would at least expect you to keep us updated on the current score...or is it getting too embarrasing.

 

Please don't tell me 10th ranked team in the world is kicking yr butts....

Surely the floodgates will open any minute for the wee boks..

The plan against the All Blacks is to eye gouge Mccaw. His eye will look good in our trophy cabinet

 Really poor performance from the mighty Bok nation. even  embarassing. Somehow you have to pick up your game. Oz might even give you a good run for your money.

Anyway, congrats to Boks and well played Argies (you did your best)!

Hmm what the crap happened there, this is the difference between AB and Boks, consistency, the Boks won but this had to be the Bizzaro test compared to last week, the Argies improved but the Boks actually went backwards.

 pooooie when speaking of God always use a capital.

Thanks.

I see our Thomas is on the field.

Walsh gives Boks a penalty. Goal Kick not taken. They want possession.

Mighty Boks win by 5 points. Not on fire but job done

These Argies could surprise lesser sides like nz and OZ? Their forwards will be too tough for the abs but possibly the abs backs will rescue them?

JW we were not at our best but you have to give credit to the Argies.. They showed they belong

 Kiwi bird brains please could you all take a look at the log where it refelcts the Boks in top spot. GFet used to seeing that.

I think some teams will have problems in Mendoza?

We need Vermaak to start or better still  Du Preez.  Side lacked fire and fowards were loose and too few committed to the rucks.

 I think Argentina played very well. Some of the passing in contact was exceptional.

They played out of their skin and frustrated the boks at the breakdown. 

The physicality of the pack was good and more than what is typically delivered from the All Blacks and Australian

Bean Brain i'd rush off to church and give thanks for that kiwi ref if i was you. Saved yr bacon big time.

 

Definitely a moral victory for Argentina. SA has used up it's get out of jail card i think so maybe seeing you were so lucky buy a lotto ticket on yr way home from church.

And i thought Arstralia were pitiful but SA has taken world rugby to an all time low with that near miss.

 The Boks beat the 10th ranked side in the world home and away (barely) and Beeno thinks the trophy should be handed over...the delusion is so strong in you Beeno....

 

 

Not surprising to see the boks revert to game plan A as soon as a little heat comes on - new year, new personnel, same old boks.  If the boks bring that game again the Wallabies will run all over them

 Thank you Mallet - he is saying Pienaar was poor. He also thinks Juandre is not physical enough. 

He says we are poor in cleaning out. Two locks and props not rucking properly. I put it as not committing enough players to the rucks.. Naas saying also that the numbers are not there at the rucks.

So you see Beeno, Mallet and naas are on the same page.

I found this clip of you laughing after this game Benno1Ugly Man Laugh,  it's time for you to get that Beeno brain to work & not get distracted by your "normal thinking" We have confidence in you Beeno. If in doubt watch how the mighty All Blacks play, lol

The AB pack is often critised for their so called "lack of physicality" but what isn't mentioned in the same sentence is their proven ability to win games consistently, the Puma's today at least matched and at times dominated the Boks, blunting their "ahem" major weapon, all of a sudden there was a lack of cohesion about the Boks. An article was citing SA running rugby after last weeks game and how exciting it was.....it may have been a bit presumptuious. However we still can not judge the Boks on this or last weeks games, as they say you are only as good as your last game and the AB's are no novices at playing scintillating rugby one week then survival the next.

 JW 3531a34faafcd3d5ab8749a94f57319e  the wee abs are creaking at the joints. 

I will say Meyer has still to fill a few places in the match 22 but there is incremental improvement and that is the way this coach progress. 2014 is when I expect it to be really coming together - as I have repeatedly said. This year I expect an improvemnet and there has been an improvement. we are getting there.

Poly these were two vastly diffent Argy sides and so assessing performace is tricky. Certain players do not inspire confidence. Pienaar doesnt quite cut it. Juandre is another who though nice and mobile lacks physicality - we need Du Toit. 

The loose trio needs a gasman like Britz at number 8 . Man he was impressive. Move Vermuelen to 7. 

Basson fails to convince. 

There is still quite a bit Meyer can do to improve the side.

If the Agies paly this well against the abs or Oz watch out. You guys do not have the forwards to match them.

Bean Brain you say the wee boks going from a 60 point win to less than a 6 point win is an improvement.

Obviously math is not your strong point,

And you say yr an accountant. Sounds like yr fiddling the books again.

 Boks first have to win in Suncorp in two weeks - if they do, its on like Donkey Kong and could come down to the final match at Ellis Park because I would bank them to win in Newlands against Australia. It may end up being key that the AB's did not get a four try bonus point yesterday. 

 

I would bet Meyer is on the phone right now negotiating FDP's release for the Suncorp and Eden Park Tests.

 

Also think Bok backrow will need some changes or Hooper who is in great form is going to have a field day on the ground.

Hey justwin I think they are going to get done at Suncorp I mean how many times have we seen it?  It reads like a well-worn script.  Aussies get wasted by ABS, then they waste the Boks.  It's on the cards.  Too bad I don't bet I'd put a few rand on that game.

 Boks have a shocking record in away games in the RC/Tri-Nations and especially at  Suncorp, so after their bumbling effort today in Mendoza, I'm predicting a 10 point win to the Wobblies.

Looks like you'll have to put back that Bok domination for at least a decade Hasbeeno. It's not looking good for you!!
