Sorry to say, but the boks where generally woeful. Eben Etzebeth and Bryan Habana, were the only boks that showed the true passion expected from our team. The continuous up and under kicking by our players, only worked to a degree in the first half of Saturday's game, because the aussies were even poorer than ourselves. You cannot hope to win a game against a decent team by kicking all your possession aimlessly away. If you listened to our coaches remarks after the game, i got the impression of real negativity, by him, saying we could not play Australias game away from home. Well i say, we should be able to play a game to suit the situation that confronts us on any given day. We should be trained to play a variety of brands of rugby, so if one game plan is not working, we can change to plan B. Get rid of the ex bulls coach now, lets aim to play winning rugby, a brand of rugby that does not rely solely on brute force, but force, speed and guile. We MUST be confident enough to run at our opponents and get our ball to our wings, and most important, learn to offload the ball and not go to ground with it. I will hope for a miracle this coming weekend, and will remain hopeful.
