Heyneke beat them all with that! :-)

I am totally for it to see Esterhuizen at 12 for the Springboks to see how he performs. He has improved a lot this year. The only problem that I have with him is that he seems to lose perception of where he is on the field at times, perhaps a type of a spatial awareness that is not always spot on.

Pollard had a good game, and it seems that his game management has improved a lot.

That kick was a beauty!

It looked worse than terrible at the end of last season. The worst it's ever looked!
But the talk I'm talking about was just before this Pom tour started. Baring all the above results and history in mind, people still thought the Poms would take this series 3-0.

I really dont rate this guy anymore.... If the avarage age limit for a wing is 26 than SBW is a dinosaur compared to the age of his counterparts. Laumapi is way better than this guy.

Choosing reputation over form is fast becoming the nail in EJ coffin.

Ireland's forwards also mullered them, they were making ground at ease and bossed the breakdown, Aus only survived by constant infringements on their own tryline and the ref bottled it, they should have been carded at least two more times. Conversely when Ireland were carded literally the two times they did the same without warning. Also he denied McGrath a try for double movement then awarded Aus who did the same thing for their final try. The game should've been nowhere near that close, if Ireland name the same team again they'll win by 15-20 points next week with a competent ref.

Plain and simple, if Faf played for England in the 1st 2 tests they would have won due to his constant threat! Ben Youngs had no answer to his ability to snipe and his defense is solid too. We have a gem long may it continue, the pundits can moan all day long we need to start playing a different style and Rassie is giving the guys the freedom to express themselves, I love it! I am sick and tired of this - I kick to you and you kick to me and we both stuff up at some point! If we are to beat and compete with the All Blacks we need to change and Faf is key to that change - we need more scrumhalves like him - Pollard is playing like he is the best 10 in the world outside Faf too. Keep it going Faf...
