I appreciate that but the frustration is that NZ should not even have been in with a shout of winning the game, they should have been a man down and 15 points out. This is a very rare occasion for the Boks, having the majority of calls go against them and still winning a tight one.

Of course and that is why all SA fans are currently scratching their heads wondering why the Boks cannot reproduce that game every game.

Yea realise in the final plah of the game the assistant ref told owens that 8 and 9 were offside right? And he did nothing. Not saying the ABs were robbed just that both sides get away with calls and at the same time receive calls they shouldnt.

As the Oracle states if you dont communicate on d you dont get forgiven

Good buy, has another year or two to get some steel, but hope he has a great career at the Sharks, and help you win some SR games against the BBRU boepies at Loftus. Man, I am really ... off by the Loftus omies, who keeps on destroying our rugby!

How on earth can they resign dummies like van Vuuren and Nickie, and let this talent go?

It was a joke, JM's two love children, van Vuuren and Nickie was much worse in the 15 games they played, and never jerked off the park, once. Just there with that move, lost all respect for the kiwi, good riddance he is gone also.

You have to remember that Colbe is a former province player hence superior to other players from other unions. Personally I'd like to see Combrink at Fullback I think Colbe should stay on the wing where he wont be as exposed defensively.
