Re: Du Toit reveals Boks secret Tactics for World Cup Final

It’s would have been much more of a hurdle for the Boks as the AB’s bet then in pool play with a degree of comfort . Nah. Rassie's genius was getting to Japan 8-10 days before anyone else.

Re: Du Toit reveals Boks secret Tactics for World Cup Final

Around the 30th minute England really had a good spell. They launched phase after phase of attack. The Springboks defence held. Vunipola at one time was driven back in the tackle from Marx and Mostert. I haven't seen the Springboks tackle like that except in the last minutes against nz in nz for a R...

Interesting and Elton did an excellent job. England's planning wasn't as on as their semis against nz.

England cleverly exploited the...
