Boks win fairly convincingly in the end in BA.

Really Argentina should never have got to 20 points - they did some nice stuff but their discipline was shocking and only DAYmon Murphy's incessant chatter kept them in it at points, plus what I consider a very weird PT/YC call.

Boks got the BP only because a pass from Mapimpi that was 2 metres forward was not picked up by anyone and the broadcaster didn't have the sense to fire off 15 replays with arrows and a pie chart before the conversion attempt.

When do you decide enough is enough with this amateur officiating and take over Pfitzy?

Someone needs to straighten this mess out.

This ref was going for the record for number of penalties. Ffs these nerds with whistles have ruined this sport, they think we pay to watch them for some reason

Yep only trouble is Tom, which ref's decision should he let go. I say aften we don't want refs blowing uo every infraction, unless it against the team they support.

Maybe Frans Steyn is getting one last start before he retires. Given his play so far, its time I think. But with a 6:2 bench there won't want to be too many backline injuries, otherwise he'll have to play 80 minutes and his last 10 will be pretty slow.

Based on what. He has been very good every time he has come on as a replacement. In fact he was excellent erleir in the year every time, He may look fat and slow but he does exactly what he needs to,

Look. I would much ratehr see a youngster get a shot, but he will be just fine.

This is bad planning though. To not have a youngster in the wings. Pollard injured, Jantjes suspended and now Willemse injured. When Pollard went down they should have brought a young ten in.

Bu I think Steyn will be good and with PSdT back and the game in SA, I expect the boks to win by 20.

Nah he was shockers in Adelaide.

See above. Poor planning. It beggars belief that no youngster came in when Pollard got injured and Jantjes was so absolutely awful.

There are some really promising young 10's
I dont think its that shocking. As seen with Quade and now Foley - experience at flyhalf counts for a lot.

The shocking part isn't Steyn starting, it's the fact he's the only 10 in the entire 23. Faf backup 10?
Interesting I just being watching Rugby pod, and Will Genia was on it as guest with usuals, and they were all saying how great they thought Willemsie was at 10, and wondered if Boks would be brave enough to go with him going forward. So either Boks see it different, or they prefer conservative.
As an aside Genia was bloody ineteresting on that panel with Hall and Parsons, very good!

And f*** me we just been hit by a bloody strong earthquake!! Strongest I have felt I think!
