    I had high hopes for Kwagga this World Cup, sad to say he did not reach my high expectations. Not saying he was bad though just that he’s been average

    Love Brits. A couple years ago when Leinster knocked Sarries out of Europe he went around the pitch shaking hands and talking with every child in the stand, such a gent.

    Good to see that Canada showed some gut in 2nd half. Especially with 14 men!

    Pollard, Jantjies, Steyn, Wilemse on the field at the same time. Have we ever been so well setup to play the kicking game?

    Disappointingly I definitely think Luke Pearce has let Canada get away with a few things. Think the scoreline and red card has affected him.

    Also I have to agree, Elton Jantjies is not at the same level as the rest of the SA squad.

    Haha this ref must feel sorry for the Canucks because he is giving them tons of leeway

    Both Jantjies have been pretty bad. Lost a lot of momentum when Reinach went off.

    Ah well, not 100+ scoreline. Canada definitely disrupted the S.A rucks more in the second half, but I do feel they got away with quite a bit as well. Anyways...South Africa essentially secure 2nd place.

    Oh, man. Not sure what has me more upset. The fact we only won the 2nd half by 12 points or the fact that I'd be bang on with my 59 points difference on Superbru if I hadn't accidentally picked Canada by 59..

    Seems to happen a lot against 14 men and people were going nuts when Argentina lost a man and England didn't run riot.........

    TBF we had some luck in the first half as well. Missed a knock on I think in our first try and our 50/50 kicks and off loads all went to hand that would usually be, well 50/50.

    Haha. I'd like to say you're welcome but I'm a wee bit salty LOL.
