Springboks tour success: 3-0! Neil's take on the game against France

·
Written by Neil Jardine
On the whole, our discipline was controlled and helped with our cohesion and clinical attention to detail. Willie le Roux – one can't ignore the man! - once again put in some pin-point tactical kicks and was his usual inventive self. We dominated possession and territory and kept our heads 'when all about 'us were losing theirs' – thank you Rudyard Kipling.

The Springboks were full value for their easy victory, 28-0. But only 7 points in the second half?

SA vs WALES: patchy game with some brilliant moments from the Boks!

·
Written by Neil Jardine
The Springboks took their opportunities; the Welsh couldn't or, more correctly, were not allowed to. Apart from some feeble tackling early on when Jonathan Davies cut through SA's first line of defence, the visitors' defence was solid throughout. Tackles were physical and collision was the order of the day. It was 'full-frontal-tough' out there.

The matches were interesting and at times absorbing, but on the whole the Springboks were hardly tested. In the match against Scotland, the Scots came out breathing fire and brimstone and played with determination and great courage. Skill was another matter. Once the fervour of the team talk and the embambarrassment of the massive loss to the Samoans, the Springboks were able to keep their composure and gave us a complete display of defensive and attacking play at a very high standard indeed.
