You would be hard pressed to say we would not have won that game if foley started.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.

Wonder if they’ll look at the scrum that injured tupou’s neck.
That was bloody dangerous play by the beast.
Tupou pulled him down so fair penalty but the beast got back to his feet, bored in and drove tupou over his neck.
Clearly pissed off at being owned.
Lucky he wasn’t injured more seriously
Tui was again much stronger with the ball the longer the game went on. And I'm not sure that he made any defensive howlers like last week, so a much better all round performance from him. I wonder how much of that might be attributed to the presence of To'omua in the backline and less moving around in defensive positions by the rest of the players.
I think the referee has a fair amount of control over the quality of the game. Tonight was poorly reffed in my view. 50/50 calls against the attacking team, a lottery in the scrum - didn't make for a great spectacle. Admittedly skills were poor from both teams but I don't think the ref helped at all.
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.
I thought the ref was fine. I personally would have called things differently quite a few times, but rewind it, the ref calls were OK. Not brilliant, but they were OK.
