Current RWC champs, current Rugby Championship champs and current B&I Lions series champs. It would be rude not to let someone else have a go at winning something....good luck for the TN mate. :thumbup: 8)
You have to admire the ability of bok supporters to be able to ignore the many many years of humiliation, anger and sorrow to bounce back so quickly and be this breathtakingly arrogant. Fair play to you

In the amateur era, when the overall results (and particularly series results) between nations was what mattered, the Bokke had the best overall record...and NZ were third, as they had (and indeed still have) a negative record v Zimbabwe. However; in the professional era, RWC victories are what matters...and the Bokke have 3 in 7, while NZ have 3 in 9. QED 8)

I'm afraid that you are mistaken boet. Prior to 1996, the Bokke were 5 to 4 ahead in series wins v NZ and 21 to 18 ahead in overall wins...and that excludes the 3 to 1 victory in 1986. Check it out in the link below if you are still confused:

Overall wins means vs everyone. Surely if SA were the best they'd have the best record overall?

Well if you're gonna include theoretical sides that don't actually play rugby, there's an infinite number of unbeaten sides.

You think an oke like Pieter-Steph du Toit is scared of playing these players? It's not about scaredness, it's about preparing for Lions tour and RWC 2023. We wish the Boks could play, the players wish they could too. But Rassie is wise.
Mud slinging aside, that Lions tour will be extremely doubtful for next year, no?

Hard to beat SA at home pre-isolation. The proud apartheid nation was never going to allow a series loss to embarrass them on the world stage. Like the nazis in Escape to Victory.

Oh...that old hoary chestnut. I suggest that you read Tony O'Reilly's autobiography where he stated that he had no problem with the refs in SA, but had mammoth issues with the refs in NZ during his B&I Lions tours to said respective countries.

P.S. I believe that many of your countrymen are blaming NZ's loss today v los Pumas on steroids. There is one thing consistent with you blokes...sour losers. Steroids, refs in SA, Wayne Barnes, food poisoning blah, blah, blah.

SA's overall record has declined since neutral refs were introduced, NZ's has improved. Coincidence?

Hmmm...clearly not a man of science. The bottom line is how each nation performed against every other nation, not overall victories. SA beat NZ more than NZ beat SA during that time...and SA beat every other country by more too. It's not SA's problem that NZ played a huge amount of tests v the Aussies, who were sh1thouse until the late 20th century, which significantly increased NZ's overall win ratio. Imagine what the Bokke's victory ratio would have been if they'd played over 100 tests against Botswana in that time. I use our neighbours Botswana, rather than Zimbabwe, as NZ has never beaten Zimbabwe so that would be like rubbing salt into your wounds. :lol: :lol:

Last time SA beat NZ in a series in NZ was in the 1930’s ffs !

Losing tests by 50 points is nothing to be proud about either .

Peaches is probably another Anon multi. No one else has mentioned roids that I have heard. I’m listening to sports talkback, while doing some work, and all have congratulated Argentina on an inspired performance. Some Kiwis enjoyed it so much they watched a replay this morning.

The high performance recommendation was 400 mins of rugby due to covid lockdowns and we have to stay with science
Argentina though haven't played and have beaten the ABs quite easily
Wallabies played more and are also up there having beaten the ABs last week.
Game between Arg. and Aus the big one

Covid better here. International travellers open now. 4 tests planned before B + I Lions series and will incl. Argentina by the look of things the Trinations champs which will delight all the uninformed that think Springboks reason for not competing is scared

You don't get it mate. You can't just sit out a tournament because you're afraid your players might get hurt. Rugby isn't a safety first venture. It's not tiddlywinks.
