Can't argue.

Nienaber is a puppet coach and the puppet master on Zoom doesn't seem to work.

Believed their own bullshit. And got found out. Twice.

Must be a lot of self doubt in their camp right now.

I mean, they objectively do.

That said, England copped plenty of shit in 2004 when they lost 4 in a row (and rightly so).

If - and there's still plenty of water to pass under the bridge first - the Boks lose both ABs games, then we're in worst world champs EVER territory.

Faf is out of form and petulant second yellow of the season and lucky not to get a red on the first one.

Badly missing PSDT and Snyman. Play Mostert at lock and leave him at lock.

With 30 minutes to go they were gassed. The ABs are going to run them off their feet inside 40mins.

I just wonder if the much maligned "basketball rugby" caught up with the South Africans and despite the allegedly weaker defensive structures they have simply struggled to adapt to the pace.

I suspected they might struggle over these parts. Bomb squad don't mean sheatt if you cant make a to b to c d e and then back this way in reverse.

You're the one calling SA shit. Last time out the gate against you they handed you your ass in the RWC Final. Australia have just beaten the RWC Champions. Fair dues I reckon but hardly evidence SA is "shit ennit".

They need to start playing, they are boring to watch and now the results are going pear shaped they start to look for excuses. You can't play this rubbish forever, it seems to work when others are just scared as you like in WCs.

Half that England RWC team had retired, and they were down to 6th and 7th choice props. Saffas have none of those excuses.

Yes, but beating one quality team, England, in the tournament doesn’t warrant the subsequent fluffing as a great team. They hadn’t built a great, consistent track record before the cup. And whether it was last year or this year, these are the results we expected following the cup. That their style of play would get ‘found out’.

That England team were the best team in the world 2001-2003 so rightful favourites going into it and deserved world champs.

Is that because they actually attempted to play some rugby this week? I briefly thought they were looking ominous and beginning to get on top of the Wallabies midway through the second half.

Selections are all wrong and the body language isn't right. You could see Hooper talking to his guys all the time, Kolisi nada.

Willie, Wiese, Kwagga, Nkosi shouldn't be in the team.

Faf is out of form and petulant second yellow of the season and lucky not to get a red on the first one.

Badly missing PSDT and Snyman. Play Mostert at lock and leave him at lock.
I thought Kwagga was quite dangerous when he came on.

Agree they are badly missing PSDT and Snyman. Don't understand why they are playing Mostert at flanker. I'd bring Du Preez in, I rate him more than Kwagga. De Jager will be back next week.

Oh Christ the boks were elevated to godlike status by the British press ahead of the Lions tour. Stephen Jones being the worst offender unsurprisingly.

The Boks look like the normally do during a tour to Oz. Not fit, not interested and losing.

Yep. At 51 minutes there were lots of hands on heads and hips.

They just don't look fit enough at all.

Oz must be a shit place to tour. Bloody police state, if you look at all the Covid riots and stuff.
Cheaters in business too, according to the Frenchies.
