I don't see this ending well for the Boks. Hail *fupping* Mary loose trio selection and de Jager playing himself into match fitness by starting against the AB's - genius or madness? (remember, this is Alistair Coetzee we're talking about). Seems like he wants Marx to have more options to miss in the line out.

Our backs look as juicy (to the opposition) as usual. Kriel wishes they measure 'running' rather than 'metres gained'; he'd be top of the ranking then.

Yeah, after 57 - 0, the coaching team is going to latch onto anything better as a sign the Boks are on an upward curve.

Will the Boks score anything?
Will the AB's even care?

I've been waiting a couple of years for a performance like that last AB v SA game. We won't see another score like that.

Brodie out also makes a big difference.

ABs by 15.

Excellent team rugby, no numbers

SA threaten the line and ABs back in spades ....that was ace!

Game played at significant pace with mostly Boks on Back foot but alive ...

Missed pen SA..

Remains 3 3 after 30 ...one could say that the ABs have been slack with their finishing.

One senses Boks increasingly vulnerable (if that is possible) but ABs finishing again letting them down

PS SA 9 seems awfully slow and poor kicking options ...

Half time, very fluid but disappointing in ultimate execution.

Boks face a mountsin in 2nd half if APs sharpen the finidhing.

3 8 amazingly

Unprofessional both teams to play on for extra 9 mins and risk take?!...ABs get an potential bad injury

sA go for pen and lineout not kickable pen

Completely daft!! andunusually unprofessional ABs

49 minute first half...lots of large bodies being thrown around, still waiting for a game of rugby

I agree with the comment that too many internationals are played today.
