Argie coach: Well done for holding the tackle bags, second stringers. I will reward you. Show me what you've got. This is your chance.

Bok coach: Same. Kick. Hit it up. Maul.

Looking forward to this game. Hope the argies stick to the same game as last week but with a little more commonsense in kicking the ball clear


Nathan Sharpe (72)
I thought it was a foregone conclusion he's done?

Hardly. South African rugby is getting what it wants, to all intents and purposes.

Good luck to the Argies. Would love to see the top three teams being the adventurous ball playing teams.

Who cares. If we win, we win, well, fuck all. If we lose, another loss in 2015. It's a lose-lose.

And I think we might lose.

Doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result.

I'm embracing it.


Tony Shaw (54)
Exactly my point. Our shortfall is a lot more than just gameplan-related.

I agree, but that's where it starts. Look at how Cheik has transformed our play by starting with the right gameplan. Remember how dismal we looked by just playing what's in front of us.

Looking forward to this game - tipping Argentina, hard to pic a margin but will say 3 - 7 points...

I think the Argentinians learnt alot about their tactical errors last week, and I am not sure the Bok defence will ask the same questions of them... Finally, i think the Argie players will be up for it, whilst the Boks will be looking for the Airport...​

I'm also looking forward to this game. It might suck to play it, but we'll still be seeing two great teams at the peak of their conditioning and team-building playing at a neutral venue. That only happens during world cups. And if the Argies win this they have absolutely legit bragging rights over the Boks.

I'll be cheering for the Argies as my new second team, but I'd pick the boks to win. The Argentinians are known for being an emotional side, so it'll be interesting to see which emotion drives them for this match. Patriotism or disappointment?


John Eales (66)
OK so the only change to the Boks side is to demote the in form de Jager to the bench so that Matfield gets to captain at his testimonial?
