    Feels like you could be family of mine.

    For a few years on this platform now it has been All Blacks v Boks / Boks v All Blacks mantra particularly from yourself and me.

    Saving up some money for the longer term to go visit my sis who lives in NZ. Both her kids were born there. If we're lucky enough to both be still around I hope we could meet up. Sis is in Auckland.

    hoping this clicks into a unfuckwithable murder-based constituency that ignites and propels the side to ValhallaRWC2019Final. Enough mucking around with positions, let the combos settle

    If these 2 lineups played in SA I'd say SA would be overwhelming favourites. Too many with dicky form in that AB pack.

    Tell you what Ullrich, if you go to Auckland when there a Bok/AB test on, I will come over and meet up with you. And if I have already moved back would go to Auckland just for meet up!! I have great joy in meeting and having quiet beer with people who share my passion!!

    100% mate. The only time I support NZ is when they're playing England.

    Big test for both sides and each will want to take a psychological advantage building up to the World Cup. A lot on the line for the AB's. Will they bring out the Kapa o Pango? This will be an epic clash!

    Dominance early from the Saffa pack. Bombs also not being fielded well by NZ at all.

    Kolbe jamming in on D, time to go left, go right then kick-pass left & hope Rieko can hang on to it..

    Pollard is controlling everything well.

    OK stats nerds, when did the AB last score zero points in consecutive halves of Rugby Union Test Football?

    Edit: y'all can put the books away 'cos it's boomfa! time & holy fucking shit we are going to be in front at oranges. Bokke will be filthy on that.

    Edit the second: the haters won't see it but fuck me that was a sweet ball from SBW to Beaugan to set up that try. Needs to do it more than once every three seasons, obviously, but that's why Shag & Co persist with him long after most have decided it's time to move on.

    This is like watching two versions of the Blues play each other; one has 300% possession but can't score, the other can't hold the ball for more than two phases without a mistake.

    EDIT: And there's the Jailbreak version.

    In typical NZ fashion manage to scrape into the lead just before half time. Erasmus will be filthy.

    Berry having a good game.

    Very rusty from both sides. Faf and Pollard looking much better than TJ and Mounga.

    Gee I’d like to see if Barrett put a foot in touch down the sideline before that try.

    That was criminally bad decision making from the Boks 11 to come in off his wing like that.

    Typical AB's, in what is basically the first game of the season for this group. They always start rusty as.

    Kolbe's doing it too so I think it's a tactic.

    Defensive tactics shouldn't be a thing. Go up fast in a straight line, then slide.
