yes yes we where crap. but remember this is a meaningless game after trying hard vs the abs and loosing, there was no point in this or the next game ( I predict a closer result)
it ment a lot for the bocks who grabbed a much needed championship. now the can sail calmly into the wc.
as for los pumas IMO the are more like looking to get through these games whit no injuries. there was no intensity they didn't show up.
all this doesn't mean is gonna be so at the wc. don't count your money yet.
was thinking about our " advantages" of playing together all year long. some of us argued it would be more like worn off zero energy at the end. it was.
was it really that meaningless? You fielded your strongest team and got smashed.
What the Wallabies did to you, we just repeated, Your set-pieces were horrendous. The Bajada scrum seems like a distant memory now.
It seems like your guys were out of puff after the first 10 minutes. And that second half was just woeful.
Anyways, I'm a very happy Springbok supporter. That performance was the highlight of my long-weekend, and I'm glad I stayed up to watch the game and the trophy presentation. Rassie is now the first South African to have won the SH international tournament as both player and a coach. I can't believe it's been 9 years since we've won the trophy, and the first time we've won it since Argentina joined.
Very good performances all around, although I thought that Faf and Mapimpi were our poorest performers.
Kolbe at scrumhalf does pose the question if we should take 3 scrumhalfs to the WC. I can see us only taking 2, with kolbe as the 3rd choice, and have another utility player in the ranks.
