    Do you think it was the Drop Kick. What a moment.

    Boy did the Argies run the All Blacks close. Dull game though. Next week is going to be a cracker against their old rival. Because ...

    Bok B side comfortably over Australia says, either a lot about the depth of the Bok squad or that the issues in the Strayan side are bigger than we thought. Losing Folau has hurt them tremendously. I think they need Kurtley in the starting lineup. He brought a spark to their offense when he came on.

    Cheika ‘took the positives’ out of that loss, according to my news. He said that although they’d shipped five tries the Ozzie defence was strong.
    Hmmmm. Five tries down to Bok B’s? I think he’ll soon be taking up gardening leave.

    KB was outstanding.

    Haylett-Petty had a shocker. Missing the try, and then coughing-up a second-half turn-over that lead to a try, pretty much cost 'Stralia any chance of competing at the end of the match.

    yep very close.

    Scrappy and way too many errors by the men in black.

    Draw probably the right outcome.

    There’s much bleating here in South Africa over the ref and linesmen.

    Nevertheless, after some years in the wilderness, it’s about time we started having something to cheer about. A draw in the land of the long white cloud is nothing to sneeze at.

    Folau was great, but I don't think he is that much better than Beale, other than his aerial game. Beale is clearly the next best fullback in Australia, and it was immediately apparent when he came off the bench.

    Fixed that for you. Kerevi is golden at first center. He just seems to run out of gas. He can play the full 80 but he seems winded after 30 meters. Maybe it's just me.
    Kuridrani didn't show up.

    Lucky ... son of a thousand fathers. I hope to make it, even for just one week. But i haven't worked since mid Feb, so it's not looking likely. :cry

    PS. "Until the color of a mans skin" should be properly attributed to Haile Selassie. Speech given to the United Nations in 1963. Taken almost verbatim and rearranged so beautifully by the legend. One of my favorite songs. from my favorite artist. My signature over at boomboxery.com is "I don't always listen to Bob Marley, but when I do, so do my neighbors."

    Either way, we stan a legend.

    Yeah, like Kerevi, not sold on Kuridrani. He was great a few years ago, but seems pretty low on form at the moment. Not sure who the best 13 is at the moment. Probably Ashley-Cooper. He's not a long term option, but mr reliable to get through the world cup.

    Maybe Kerevi to 13 and Toomua at 12?

    That might actually work. A playmaker at 12 is always a good thing. Bok coaches, unfortunately it seems, are handed a manual that says 12 must be a bash em up type of player.
    I miss when we had Jean deVilliers and Jacque Fourie at center. That center pairing gave every team fits! And both of them regularly got over the gainline. And both of them were very good at creating for the next player. And they were staunch in defense.

    Empires rise and fall but Adam just carries on. Throw the man a shirt with (almost) any number on the back and he'll give you 80 minutes of effort.

    Yup, any spot from 11-15, you knowhe won'tlet you down. He's no spring chicken, but he's still consistently reliable and gives 100% every time. His experience would be invaluable in a world cup.
