Springboks prove all critics wrong
EXCLUSIVE: South Africa’s victory over the All Blacks in New Zealand took the rugby world by surprise, so much so that all critics were made to eat humble pie.
One of those critics was former Stormers centre Morgan Newman who admitted that he felt bad for not believing in the Springboks.
“I actually feel bad for not believing at all. Categorically, there was no chance of the Springboks beating the All Blacks and clearly I was just wrong on a thousand different levels,” Newman said.
“I am happy to be wrong. I always preached that the right players are there, we have the right captain in place, we have the right coach in place and I believe we are on the right track. I just felt the All Blacks were light years ahead of us in terms of performance.
“After what we have seen in the last few games, I don’t think I was wrong in having that thought but what we saw is clearly what this team is capable of putting together,” he added.
