Ireland played really well and deserved their win.although the two failed conversions from very kickable positions cost SA 4 points. Boks will have to be in their A game against the French

I thought in general the 'Boks also stood up very well (bar too many missed tackles) against a well-drilled Irish side - HOWEVER for the life of me I can't understand how the 'brains trust' can contemplate going up against quality sides without a recognized kicker :ohmy: and to top it all in the discussions after the match, no-one in the team set-up even mentioned that - let me mention a few candidates, Libbok, Chamberlain, Smith etc - if they do want Willemse in the team, I suggest playing him at center in Kriel's place (while Am is out).

I would have much more confidence against France, if we have a recognized kicker in the team; surely the correct thing to do is to come up with a statement 'sorry, we made a mistake, but this is how we plan to correct it' - in stead of pointing to the forwards (mauls and scrums did not go as expected) - but against quality sides, having a kicker is much more important :huh:

It appears Frodo, that both the Boks and the Protea are managed by people who don’t get it. If fans see it why can’t they?

SA can surprise France providing they don’t keep on kicking as the French will be devastating on the counter attack

Italy will make Australia work hard for the win

England should win although Japan will give it a go

Scotland will try but the ABs will steamroll them

Ireland by plenty

Wales still licking their wounds and will lose again

Samoa beat England in the semi final of the rugby league world cup at the Emirates 27-26

In the group stages England beat the same Samoa 60-6. Crazy.

England woman’s rugby team also lost but he will remain there until the cricket is over then I think that he is heading off to the top of Ben Nevis until the football World Cup is over

Far better display but then the French unlike the Irish wanted to play rugby.
