Wales looked f’ed already. If it’s a plan to only put a few forwards into rucks it’s slowing their ball down. Their kicks are poor and they are losing all the collisions.

If we got points for kicking the game the game would be over by now

Welsh pack is going backwards and the rucks are a complete free for all, not sure what any 10 is meant to do with ball like that

What a mess of a semi fnal.

A SA/France game would have been far more entertaining...

Wales will continue to frustrate the superior team to keep this close, and probably take the lead later.

His kicking is unusually inaccurate, he's a step or two slower than usual.

Feels like a slight momentum shift as the Bok forwards start making inroads.

Wales still have the edge in the air and on the couple of times they actually ran the ball.

He loses time going backwards and waiting an eternity for the ruck to be cleared - not at all surprising

In terms of SA having a plan it's going perfectly to script, however grim to watch.

Hope Francis isn't wrecked for the season.

Only thing worse than the kicking is having to listen to Hightower commentary. x(

But at least they’re broadcasting it on US tv :lol:

I know but it seems to be slower than you'd expect even with that factored in.

Dont know why the boks cannot handle properly as soon as they enter the opposition 22. Damn frustrating. At least it seems Pollard found his kicking boots

Davies needs to get that ball out quicker, when he can, as well.

Once they make the break so slow at the rucks. SA can just reform the defence. Why are those dopey forwards hanging around the backline to no effect?
