Boks playing like they went out last night.
Guessing has never been widely acclaimed as a good gambling strategy.

Outclassed and out-played the first 15 minutes - thereafter an even game - I think Kolbe scored :dry:

I have never played rugby - but have watched all my life; I think one has to wonder what Williams is doing in the team - he is picked at fly-half, but he almost never is first receiver - other observations -

Obviously the first 15 minutes was a game-breaker - and we predictable could not come back; then one has to commend the All Blacks on their kicking game - almost always contestable, where the few kicks we tried, were not in the same league; then I think we let Will Jordan get away much too often

One has to wonder how we can beat NZ in France - in the end I think they beat us fair and square today (even though the ref made a few questionable decisions in the scrums - and the Kolbe try 'error' in the first half imo was nullified as Le Roux's pass to Kolbe when he did score, was forward); so we will probably have to beat Ireland in the WC round-robin to even make the quarter-finals :dry:

NZ is very sharp at the moment. Great skills.
We looked rusty. Need plenty of lubricant before World Cup.
I am still taking plenty of doubles with the horses into the Bokke to retain the World Cup.

The Boks did try hard but still fancy the All Black's are the real deal for WC and worth a punt against France ......in the first group

Some great rugby today
Aus vs NZ for the Bledisloe Cup , NZ - 16.5 on the handicap , Aus have been shocking all year but will be up for it today , Aus on handicap the way to go for me

SA vs Argentina , SA - 19.5 on handicap , Argentina played there best game to beat Aus 2 weeks ago , SA didn't play well against NZ and will surely get that right today , SA on handicap the bet of the weekend

All Black's unbeatable

Plus only if Messi comes on for Argentina they have a snowballs chance

We could easily have lost yesterday if Argentina had a reliable kicker,whichthey do have but didn't play yesterday.
The Boks will be relying on Pollard but if he doesn't go through the WC,then we are in big trouble.
You cannot go into a tournament without a proven and reliable place kicker.
