VIDEO: Brain dead Bok game plan

WATCH as we bring six minutes of the worst decision-making you will see from a Springbok team.

They had this game for the taking – with All Blacks having an off day – and they literally kicked it away with the dumbest decision making that you will see in quite some time.

They played so good in this Rugby Championship match-up, up until the 74th minute when it all fell apart.

They get a linebreak in the 74th minute and have a six versus three overlap on the outside, but Francois de Klerk does not even try to look for an attacking opportunity. He only had one thing on his mind and that was to kick.

Then there’s the 76th-minute incident where SA gets a turnover in midfield, they get scrum advantage. To give context, they dominated the scrums and got penalties with their scrums.

But instead of taking the scrum advantage, Pollard makes one of the worst decisions you will see and decides to just kick it away.

That led to AB’s counter-attacking and creating a penalty, which won them the game.

And to top things off, at the end of the game – with one minute left – SA has the ball on midfield and Herschel Jantjies just decides to kick it away.
