What’s the stats when an opposition scores 30+ points on the ABs? I remember reading about it somewhere.

This is going to be the match where Barrett’s shithouse kicking is going to cost us. Bring back DickMo.

Some very un-AB like play in that 40. Not to down-play the very good work of the Bok from about the 20 minute mark onwards.
Will be very interesting to see the tactical subbing in the 2nd 40 from the ABs.

The ABs have a challenge.

Beauden Barrett's goal kicking the difference again. 1 from 3 not good enough.

Well played Boks. :thumbup:

The cross-field kick that went straight to the Bok winger who literally didn’t have to move to take it.

...and numerous others.

I don’t mind it on attack where a turnover is likely going to lead to them kicking it back anyway. The defensive one was never on.

All Blacks playing way too much rugby

Just need to go up the guts like they did for the third try rather than trying to go wide

The midfield isn't really working

Dumb plums deserve to lose when a 70% career goal-kicker is preferred to an 80% one!

Also, Scott Barrett is having a mare.

Great to see this AB team under pressure. Expecting a massive 2nd half from them. Boks well worth their lead

When was the last time the ABs conceded 3 unanswered tries in that space of time? Well, it'll make for an interesting 2nd half, but there were a few points given away there that'll be lesson's learned...
