Hodges goal kick before halftime was a highlight. The Boks rolling maul for a try was well worked, but I'm struggling to pick 3 highlights from the game. Not trying to be negative but the game isn't in great shape. It was a good tough game tonight but not a lot of beautiful rugby.

Scrum became instantly much better and actually dominated when Fainga'a replaced TPN. Must be getting close to being the starting No 2.

DHP particularly poor game tonight.
Scrum was still very ordinary once Fainga'a came on, Tupou is and was the only reason it turned around. It’s clear as daylight he is our best TH. Going forward wouldn’t mind seeing AAT having a look in at starting LH, with Kepu and Sio off the bench. Fainga'a more than deserves to be in the 23 from now on

Some keen D but bit of a klutzfight really, neither team clued up on sealing the deal, continously dropping the bride at the threshold then barking their shins on her teeth as she fell down. Again.
Oh God le Roux was shit. An absolute graveyard for bokke hope.
Der bokke midfield of Kriel and Allende have the creativity of krill and anenome respectively. Total dogshit. The wouldnt know how to put their wingers into space if the two poor unemployed c**ts flew a plane banner in front of the pair.
Best part of the match was giant gestapo freak Snyman laughing his arse off while 6 aussie forwards looked up at him angrily and vehemently remonstrated with him about this and that.

Yep, imagination.

I wouldn't say Maddocks was out of his depth at this level, I think he had a good future but I did think he looked light and didn't have the physical presence needed. On the other wing I feel like Marika is not far off a great game but wasn't on song tonight

The outcome sorta is kinda important.
Ok. Pocock = L. Samu = W

I’d get on board if Beale/To'omua killed it but the reality is they struggled to combine. They need more time together and will no doubt improve. But to say the team was better without Foley when there wasn’t any improvement in the part of the game he plays in is just Istanbul doing his usual of having a crack at Foley, even when he’s not playing. Just poor form.

Think about it. And try again.

That comment is a fail.

His first game. Thought he looked surprisingly comfortable at this level. Thought his #1 jersey was a good one. And his end jersey number is anyone's guess. Solid run.

So whats a picture show? All it shows is a hooker , but not why it happened,that is so completely stupid!!

And exactly what might have happened to cause Marx to pop? The Wallabies' front row all look to be legally bound and pushing straight. Maybe it was the power of Pocock even though he didn't play? Come on Dan, just admit for a change that the refs (and especially Jackson) get a lot of scrum decisions wrong.

And in any case, Faf is clearly off side. Why no penalty? Hey?

With you on the scrum. Though I'll have to watch it again before I agree with the implications.

DHP? wtf?

A lot of mistakes by DHP tonight. Missed tackles and poor decision making with the ball. his biggest though was his failure to catch the desperate Saffa clearing kick near halfway which then was taken uncontested by the Saffa winger. Inexcusable.

I'll read it again tomorrow. Right now I think you're being harsh.
