"A win is a win." - shelton.francis

"Tough game to watch." - mark.i.hampton

"Pure rubbish from both sides." - lettie.squirechristie

"Play like that against the AB's and we will be crucified." - rory.n.price

"We should've at least put 20 plus points past this Ireland team!"
- Arche' van Rensburg

"In the end we Won. My happiness knew no boundaries but, my nerves are still shattered. Please boys, play better, earlier on.... next time."
- alicia.myburgh65

"I don't know if I should be sad of how we played, or relieved at the fact we won."
- Ashley 

"Rather an ugly win than a pretty loss, but the team needs a plan B."
- Ryan.Ferreira71

"A shaky start, but a better end! Well done, Bokke!"
- kev47

"Glad Boks won, but not a convincing victory by any means. Lots of work to be done in this squad."
- Bruce Markovich

"The Boks gave away a total of 15 penalties in the match."
- wade.johnson.58726

"If anything this was an ugly win that has supporters asking even more questions than before." - RF

"A win is a win....but against that weak Irish side that was a poor performance...Come on Bokke, you can do much better!"
- stephen.j.coetzee.5

"For a team winning the second half 13 - 0, I would say it was a decent comeback and a good win. Yes, Ireland lost a few players to injury, but so did we." - chris.preez.5

"Ireland are never easy to beat at home, especially with their fanatically partisan crowd behind them." - edgar.johnson.353

"A young side that dug deep and came from behind to win!" - thomas.cannon.712

"We lost to Ireland in our 4 previous visits."
- Michael Agathagelou

"1st away victory of the season. 2 more to follow." - Shelton Francis
