Rugby Championship

Postby Neill_M » Sat Sep 15, 2018 12:20 pm

Good win for the Saffers this morning. They played well, although NZ were below par and Mr Barrett had a poor night re kicking 2/6.

The decision to not set up a DG at the end was strange.

Aussies v Argies is also a good watch.

The Argie kit is a cracker to be fair.

Warms the cockles of my heart, SA beat the All Blacks in NZ then with the winning of the game in his hands, homophobe Israel Falau gets greedy instead of passing to an unmarked colleague and fu@ks it up. :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

The sort of despicable "Christian" I despise wholeheartedly. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Erasmus was claiming to be under pressure. Michael Cheika definitely is.

One of the best test matches I have seen in a long long time. Boks came all guns firing. Okay, they got a couple soft tries but it made for a highly entertaining spectacle. Shows how important a goal-kicker is and NZ will learn far more from that defeat than 20 wins.

TJ perenara is a mouthy git who struggles to close out games

BB has consistantly shown he's not a test level goalkicker.

Is his all round play worth more than four missed goal kicks?

If Damian McKenzie or Jordy Barrett improved their kicking stats they'd be the nailed on fullback.

They learnt that Retallick is virtually irreplaceable but then they probably realise that anyhow... they learnt that Ben Smith is a fecking genius but again they must know that.. They will have learnt defeat which for them going forward is a good thing.. they may even get beaten again in South Africa.. they may have learnt that SBW is still their best centre going into the next RWC..

I have always said that Barrett in the big game could be their downfall... too much talent in Barrett/Barrett/McKenzie/Smith that can play anywhere and that is before we get into anyone of three to four other wingers. it can be there strength but could turn out to be their weakness.

Why they never took the drop is beyond me..

Problem is, not taking the drop now will make sure they take the drop in the future

Then that is another lesson learnt but one that even a schools side should have worked out... where they over confident? I seem to recall it was McKenzie that had dropped back and Barrett stayed up so they seemed to have both options covered.. anyway good for the game.

Perenara picking wrong options
He's a really flakey 9. Loves to be flash but seems to lack composure under pressure

Mouthy twunt too

Wonderful test match. Boks starting to look the business and have some cracking young players coming through. Ritchie Mounga could be the AB 10 come the world cup. Looks a player.
