    Forward as hell, the only question was whether it was so far forward that Quantum theory made it backwards. I assume that’s what the TMO was checking

    Looks nasty but not intentional IMO. Yellow is the right call.

    I’ve always felt that’s more than just a different name for the same position though. It demonstrates a different mentality towards the positions.

    I hear you... but I do like these little localised idiosyncrasies. I used to like the old English club jerseys with letters on the back rather than numbers as an example.

    Nah, it was very reckless even if not intentional. If Banks had been lower I’d agree, but he wasn’t really that far down.

    PSDT is properly class. Jantjies looking great on debut as well. SA have a wealth of quality 9s at the moment.

    As strange as it seems... the Ozzie’s could have been high and dry here, if not for needless forward passes, fumbled pick ups etc.

    I think it was harder than it looked, took a wicked late bounce.

    Not to say he couldn’t have handled it better

    Maybe but this is test match rugby can’t miss those sort of chances.

    Wallabies have blown two try scoring opps because of lack of accuracy.

    Could’ve blown the try as well because the last pass was a bit off
