Need I even mention it? ANOTHER loss…
Why is it that every time we lose, the fans go straight for the jugular – the ref’s?
Grow up guys! The Boks are playing crap rugby and need to pull their fingers out. Yes, it’s ‘only’ Italy this week, but it’s Mallett! Did you see what their scum did to the All Blacks’?
And if you can’t beat Italy this weekend, what’s going to happen against the Irish next weekend? I can’t bear to think about it!

And two of the tries were dodgy. A knock on and a forward pass.
Sara’s looked good though, even if Hougaard didn’t have his kicking boots on.
I reckon the Boks will be coming home with only one win on this tour. Ireland are mighty impressive right now – they’re not going to get much there.

@6000: Didn’t get to see this one. We’ll be lucky to beat the Italians with the way we are playing and the injuries our forwards are suffering. The Irish are gonna kill ’em!

You do realise that Sara’s team consists of more South Africans & ex Boks than anything else! And as Naas Botha said, “Where ever James Jones comes from, he should go back”.
He started OK, but near the end he was blowing up the Boks for the most ridiculous penalties. He realised he could cause another upset.

@Dad: Saracens has always been a very Saffa team. They’re based just a short tube/train ride from London. And when you play against guys like Hougaard, Van Heerdan, Joubert and Barritt (who incidentally is now British by passport), you will always have to work hard.
But these are the World conquering Boks. They should have won by 10-20 points. And we can’t ALWAYS blame the ref when we lose.

Last weekend it was 3 for 3.
Boks, Bafana and Proteas….. What happened to our sport?

I agree. The Boks are playing crap. They have problems in the scrum and can’t string 3 phases together. When they do get the ball they kick it away. The list goes on…

@Pamela: Boks and Proteas are supposed to be the number 1 sides in the world. As for Bafana, I’m not a fan, so I don’t really care. Made me laugh though to see that they can’t sell tickets for Bafana games and all the Saffa fans are buying up tickets to see England and Brazil!
@Spear: Is it a financial support thing? Over played? Or just plain arrogance?
