Stransky lays into 'poor, damaged' Boks

2016-11-14 12:06

Cape Town - Former Springbok flyhalf Joel Stransky wasn't happy with the what he saw from his former team against England at Twickenham this past weekend.

South Africa's 37-21 defeat was their sixth loss in 10 Tests under new coach Allister Coetzee and also their first against England in 10 years.

After Saturday’s loss, Stransky took to Twitter to criticise the Springboks' performance, saying wrong selections were made and the wrong game plan followed.

In a later tweet, Stransky also mentioned that not all of the blame should be laid at the door of Coetzee.

This is the second time this month that Stransky has criticised the Boks. He also said they were not well coached shortly before the start of their year-end European tour.

Stransky, who played 22 Tests for the Springboks between 1993 and 1996, is renowned for kicking the winning drop goal in the 1995 Rugby World Cup final against New Zealand.
