    Boks concede an early try. Every. Single. Game. I wonder if it is a psychological issue.

    If Aus and Cheika could select Aus aboard like the Boks then they would look alot better.

    Fardy and Skelton would be massive upgrades on their current options.

    WTF? Brainfart Springbok long throw in gifting 7 points to Wallabies.

    Feels like the scoreline is massively flattering the Wallabies. Still, they've taken their chances when they've had them, even if they haven;t created much.

    Boks need to sort out their match starts and exits after they score.

    Australia lucky not to have that penalty reversed. Michael Chieka's constant whinging coming through in how their captain responds and talks to the referees.

    And I'm glad I didn't get tickets. What a dire attempt at rugby this match is

    Aussie directors aren't quick to show that last breakdown,
    Lying all over the wrong side of the ruck and then hands to knock it out

    Bongi's overthrow ultimately cost the Boks the win.

    Don't think we are going to see it, but balls don't tend to fly out of rucks like that without help...

    Genia kicked it dead in goal to finish the game, I didn’t think you were allowed to do that, I thought you had to kick for touch, should that have been a penalty to the boks?

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone kick it dead, even under pressure everyone kicks for touch and I had it in my head Otago and been penalised doing that and someone like cookie had explained you couldn’t do it but I must be wrong

    Geez I was disappointed with The Boks, did they really beat England in a series? Skill level was shocking! Not the Boks I expected, I wonder what the problem is.

    Not sure about Skelton. Fardy definitely.

    Terrible game of rugby but i'll take the win.
