Hmm not sure how to call it but I am of the opinion we might beat the Aus just because it's at Ellis Park LOL

So the worst Bok team I have ever seen comfortably beats the Wallabies. I have no clue which team is happier.

This talk about a Bok A Team and a Bok B Team is a BS. It's uncalled for things like this that make us look arrogant.

I agree. Rather say they are testing combinations.

I just wish, and i know it is too late to change the beast goose step. but please can someone teach Eben that jumping into a tackle is a self inflicted trip.

Not very black, so this is definitely not a close reflection of the WC start team.

South Africa: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cheslin Kolbe, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Handré Pollard, 9 Francois de Klerk, 8 Duane Vermeulen (captain), 7 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 6 Albertus Smith, 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Malcolm Marx, 1 Steven Kitshoff.
Replacements: 16 Mbongeni Mbonambi, 17 Tendai Mtawarira, 18 Trevor Nyakane, 19 Rudolph Snyman, 20 Francois Louw, 21 Herschel Jantjies, 22 Frans Steyn, 23 Jesse Kriel.

I couldn't watch the game, is it to early to say we're on the up?

the results seem to indicate it...........two swallows don't make summer or am i over critical.

AT  the very  least, we've got hope

I don’t think that there was anything to write home about. They quickly gathered 6 points through penalties and kept the score at 6-0 until very deep into the first half but I always had the idea something was going to snap. Either they would eventually break through and score a try or the All Blacks would wake up. The last one happened and they never got closer than being somewhat of a threat. The try at the end was actually well worked and well deserved but this was one they should have won, IMO. 

I don’t know. I have mixed feelings about the Boks at this stage. I cannot decide whether I’m pessimistic or optimistic about them. Hot and cold comes to mind.

I heard once again the referee came to NZ's help as always, perhaps one day when they are treated like every other side they may fall off their pedestals.

I will watch it later today

Yep. He did make a balls up of one call but all in all he was not responsible for the many by the Boks. He had, for instance, nothing to do with all the wasted opportunities.
