Nelspruit - There are 80 minutes left for the Springboks to fine-tune ahead of the Castle Rugby Championship and coach Heyneke Meyer has much to think about as he considers his options.
The Boks might have been fortunate to be playing the game at a venue that doesn’t see them often. A performance like the one they delivered in the first half against a side that admittedly played above itself would have been greeted with derision in Durban or Cape Town, but in Nelspruit the atmosphere and support was like they would get against the All Blacks.
