Great match…one for the archive, and a perfect analysis Neil (thanks Boet). I was happy that we demonstrated how close we are behind the ABs. I thought Nigel Owens had a superb game in the middle. The problems you identified are easily fixed…drop ZK, FdP will be having nightmares about his decision before HT, tackling, defence and restarts need work to be sure, but that is simple enough….but the spirit shown…well that is not easy to reproduce and needs to be remembered and preserved. And I have never felt so good about losing…the ABs deserved to win and I am just so satisfied that we made them dig so deep. It is an honour to play against these guys and deeply satisfying to have watched the Boks play their part in the match of decades…maybe the best game since 1973?
