Cape Town - Former Springboks were not happy with the current team’s disastrous defeat to the All Blacks in Albany on Saturday.
South Africa’s 57-0 defeat was the heaviest in the history of Springbok rugby.
Loose forward Rob Louw, who played 19 Tests for the Springboks between 1980 and 1984, took to Twitter to express his discontent.
He suggested that some of the players in the South African team are no better than club players.
1995 Rugby World Cup-winning lock Kobus Wiese said he felt sorry for those who wore the Springbok jersey in the past.
Wiese was also not happy with the excuses given by the Bok coaching staff post-game.
Former captain Jean de Villiers, who spoke as a pundit on SuperSport, said Springbok rugby was at an all-time low.
“We all thought last year losing to New Zealand by 42 points was a low point and we didn’t think it could get worse. It did today. It is very difficult to find something positive to say about this game,” De Villiers said.
“We need to be honest with ourselves, we got outplayed in every single department of this game and were beaten by a much better team.”
