Hey, Van Coke.

Impressive Super XV season by your Lions. A pity Toetie has not translated their game to the Springboks.

Interesting read. I disagree regarding Mohoje, though. I think he could have easily cost you a couple of yellow cards against Argentina. Out of his 13 tackles, how many were high and went unnoticed? Garces refereeing was terrible.

I didn't see too much of the game due to the first half boring me to tears, but Mohoje was certainly a fan of using a swinging arm to make high tackles. De Allende was shit yet again and killed the backline, with Mapoe providing the final touches. Gutted for Combrinck.

currently watching New Zealand vs Argentina.

The way the Argies play... thanks for that.

Julian Savea breaking the line three times in 20 minutes.
The politest turnover ever by Sam Cane. He almost asked permission to steal it.
The blockbusting run by Jerome Kaino after a restart...

Thanks Argentina for bringing a real rugby challenge.

Oh, and Israel Dagg remembering his days at the Highlanders when he also kicked to goal from time to time Smile

Great game. Helps if the opposition want to actually play rugby too.

Julian Savea back to his best. Crotty & Fekitoa combination finally worked. Kaino played damn well.

Coles and Aaron Smith were both poor and got hooked early which proved to be the correct decision.

Sorry, Van Coke. I do not agree that your set piece was dominant. The scrum was all aussie and you could not use it to unleash your backs. The lineout was better but overall I would say it was pretty disappointing as the aussies had been really poor in this area and it is one of SA's strengths.

I particularly disliked Etzebeth. He's always been a bully, but now he is nothing else. I think he is clearly frustrated at the moment by the team dynamics and he is not helping the Boks cause by getting cards and brawling.

You should put your trust in Jantjies. The guy is becoming the monster we always thought he could become (unlike lambie, goosen, ruan pienaar, morné steyn, louis fouché and some others) but he needs the players around him.

To me, amongst other things, the Boks lack a clear leadership that is able to say: look guys, this is not working, that is working, let us get rid of what is not working and keep on doing what works.

I also saw some frustration signs in Bryan Habana. But he is a hell of a player and unlike Etzebeth he did not exposing his team but tries to help instead.

Your Bokke put the All Blacks into one of the most difficult situations I have ever witnessed in 2009, after the defeat in Hamilton. It was 3-0 for the season and the team needed to reflect. In the end the lesdership group emerged and it made the All Blacks strong enough to develop the game that has seen them dominate from 2010 on.

This is what the Boks need now, IMHO. Some leader within the team. A John Smit, a Victor Matfield, a du Preez that the team can follow. If Elton Jantjies is too young for that, then Strauss should take him under his wing and tell him : "Son, it is either your way or Hell. We have lost our traditional dominance in the key areas and cannot find the way to win without anything innovative. Show us the way, son"

Interesting that both RC matches were very match "games of two halves". ABs v Argentina was very even in the first half; and actually Argentina could claim they had overall dominance even though it wasn't quite reflected on the scoreboard; but then of course there was that second-half blowout.

Meanwhile first half of Aus v SA saw SA mostly winning the first half but then crumbled in the 2nd.

I won't claim to understand the dynamics of politics and such in SA as I only know a bit from the news (and my horrendously racist SA boss at work) but there really seems to be some missing link in the Bokkes at the moment. Possibly leadership as said above, maybe just a bit of self-faith? You'd have thought after losing to Argentina they'd be desperate to avenge it, but Aus were clearly showing more motivation after being doubly humiliated by the ABs. Expecting a different beast this weekend from SA, although it will still be lead by niggle as they try to rattle the ABs much like Aus tried to do.

It's actually quite sad to see how much more positively Aus play when they're not up against the ABs. Against anyone else (especially SA) Aus play positive Rugby and really show their talents (heck, even Cooper looked downright mature in the half I saw) while against the ABs they become petulant whingers.

SA aren't the same there - they certainly approach the ABs differently to other teams, but it feels more like two brothers going at it against each other...

SA apparently paying $9 to beat the ABs, probably worth a cheeky bet. South Africa are surely a better chance to win than that

An adequate but certainly not a great performance, and still ran out comfortable winners. The RC is ours now with 2 games in hand. Coles and Aaron Smith were the 2 worst last week and were the 2 best this week. Guess they didn't like getting hooked after 50 minutes. 3 assists for Coles!

Do we run the changes for the remaining 2 games? I think Squire and Dixon desperately need game time at 6. Damian McKenzie and Ioane to make their debut off the bench?

I missed the game. We took a future prop (1.20cm and 25kg) to his first ever training. Hell, he even won at "Last Man Standing".

He now says he wants to go to play rugby next Wednesday.

What age is yours Tryasta? Mine just turned 5 and is 115cm, 25kg. Was going to put him into lagartijas this year but started him in judo to get him more co-ordinated first.

I did judo for two years and they coordinated my ass....

We (always and I) have three:

a 15 yo who stopped swimming last February after she would not qualify for the National Championships.
a 120cm (always claims he is at least 123cm), 25kg prop (conservative, reckless), who will turn 5 in two months
a 105cm 16kg halfback (timid, rebellious), who cried today when he was told he won't be able to play until next year.

Southern France. Possibly the best place in the northern hemisphere to bring up rugby players.. Smile

I have a 2013 model too, just turned 3, don't know latest weight or height because he punched the doctor in the eye but he's on the same lines as the elder. He looks and acts like a tank, beats up bully kids a course older than him. Definite No.8. Psychotic/Mutinous.
