View Full Version : Springboks not having a happy Tri-Nations thus far (snicker, snicker)

Missed teh game last night but heard they got another player sent off within 15 minutes for the third game in a row.
Undoubtedly NZ's Richie McCaw gets away with a lot, *possibly* the refs are harsher towards the Boks but at the same time, they have to smarten up.

If they are being penalised unfairly, give the ref nothing to frown upon. Or at least avoid spear tackles, headbutts and possibly attempted eye-gouging!

Playing one man down in test matches against NZ and Australia is an excellent way to get beaten. Not that I'm complaining after the 3-0 whitewashing against the All Backs last year.

The boks lack a lot of brain power (made up by pure brawn), and if the All Blacks and Wallabies play a better tactical game, and can almost always outwit the boks.

I went to the game at Eden Park the other week, and the springboks appeared to get tired very quickly. I think it could be a result of the fact that they aren't as fit as the Australians or (the mighty) New Zealanders http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
