Before making predictions as to the potential outcome of the game next Saturday - there are issues here that needs to be addressed. I think most people are in euphoria about what happened yesterday - but there are some issues to be addressed by the Springboks as well.

Probably the most pertinent issue is the line-out problem. Yesterday virtually all line-out takes were by Etzebeth - he took 8 line-outs - followed by 1 each by Vermeulen, Van der Merwe and Kruger. Why did driving mauls not work? Because of that anomaly. Mauls always was a strong weapon of the Springboks - but unless there are improvement in line out play - that weapon becomes worthless.

The stronger point of the Springboks will be their scrummaging. Yesterday the AB's were showed up badly in that Department.

Our second weakness is around the back row. Vermeulen was good and Louw outstanding yesterday - however, Alberts had a brain implosion and if you analyse the situation - you will find that there remains a problem in that combination.

I would say that it will be a tight game that could be impacted upon by penalties. Between Flip and the loosies - they donated a total of 6 penalties to the Aussies - just not good enough.

My prediction - the All Blacks by 7 points.

All Blacks by 15, the AB live for these tests. Forget what you saw at rainy Hamilton it will be a different team for the Springboks. Nothing better than betting the BOKs. And at the Eden Park heart of darkness.
