Player ratings: Simply outclassed
Namibia simply couldnt match the All Blacks up front, which laid the perfect platform for exciting All Black backline to tear the Namibians apart.
Andrew Howitt rates the Namibia players
15 Johan Tromp
Solid game at the back, did not set the world alight but had a solid performance
14 David Philander
Was caught out on defence a couple times, but had a couple decent runs. Fairly average performance
13 JC Greyling
Missed a few tackles and dropped the ball a couple times also. Not a great performance by the Outside Centre.
12 Johan Deysel
Scored a fantastic try along with made a couple decent hits in defence. Good performance.
11 Conrad Marais
Simply outclassed by his opposite (Nehe Milner-Skudder). The winger simply was not in the game at all this evening.
10. Theuns Kotzé
Reliable from the boot, pretty much is all I can say about the number ten. Seemed to be a fairly solid player .
9 Eugene Jantjies
Passed well from the base, did not make many errors. The scrumhalf can be happy with his performance
8 Leneve Damens
Had one run in the first half and made a couple tackles. Did not have the greatest game
7 Tinus du Plessis
Worked extremely hard, made a lot of tackles, had a couple decent runs. Solid performance by the flank.
6 Jacques Burger
Forced a couple turnovers along with made a lot of tackles. Burger also made couple errors but all in all had a good game
5. Pieter-Jan van Lill
Won a couple lineouts and made a couple tackles. Had a fairly quiet game
Made a fantastic lineout steal 5 meters from his line along with made a couple tackles. Solid match by the lock.
3 Johannes Coetzee
Not a good day at the office for any of the props. They were really taught a lesson at the scrums.
2 Torsten van Jaarsveld
Worked hard but did not influence the game much. A fairly average performance by the hooker
1 Jaco Engels
Got demolished at scrumtime and gave away numerous penaltys. Engels also received a yellow card. An awful performance
16 Louis van der Westhuizen
17 Casper Viviers (on for Engels, who was yellow-carded, 57th min)
Destroyed in the scrums, and did not offer much else.
18 Raoul Larson (on for Engels, yellow-carded, 52nd min)
Again, another front row forward who was simply dominated in this match.
19 Renaldo Bothma (on for Damens, 45th min)
Got involved with ball in hand but without much success. He had a positive influence on the team when he came on.
20 Janco Venter (On for Burger, 64th min)
Tackled well but nothing more.
21 Rohan Kitshoff (on for Burger, 62ndf min)
Tackled well and cleaned out at the ruck but didnt influence the game much
22 Eneill Buitendag (on for Damens, 72nd min)
Not enough time to be rated
23 Chrysander Botha (on for Marais, 45th min)
Made a great tackle on Ben Smith when he came on, did not do much thereafter
