  1. 9-10 HT
    Bokkies doing stupid things, giving
    ABs the ball from every kick.
    Bokkies powerful up front, backline
    pretty useless.
    ABs have all the firepower when they
    spread the ball.
    SA defensive pattern very suspect.

  2. And so the natural order of the universe returns to normal now its time for the seniors to set the record straight too.

    Well done boois, even missing Goose, Hall-smith, Jordaan… :boks:

  3. Geez can you imagine of Goose and Small-Smith and Jordaan had been in that backline…

    It would have been a slaughter of the Baby Blacks… so bad it may have been inferred as racist…
