    Pumas start like a house on fire and the passion is really their

    You can see that the AB is not panicking even when they under huge pressure

    AB coming in from the side of the rucks again and Jaco Peyper is doing nothing about it, like normal

    Pumas scrumming the AB :)

    First try AB after kick from Pumas that went nowhere

    Some idiot in the crowd is pointing a laser on the ball before AB kick for conversion

    Pumas destroying the NZ scrum, don’t even want to know what they will do with Aussie scrum next week

    Pumas really trying in defence and holding on at this stage

  9. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:

    AB still taking players away from the side and off the ball and the ref is doing nothing about it. AB looks full of running but Pumas defence holds.

    Pumas not attacking with any structure can not see them winning a game against the AB this way.

    I hope the Pumas can keep it up and deni the kiwis that BP. Pitty about that try, was a bit lucky for the kiwis…

    @JT_BOKBEFOK!: AB do like they can score a lot from even not having too much ball

    All I want is no bonus point for them, but I think they will get away from pumas in second half

    How many PK’s that now for against the AB’s?

  15. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:
    September 29th, 2013 at 1:50 am

    Again the AB dive on ball in rucks and ref does…..nothing

  16. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:

    Great worked try by the ABs :-(
    Game over imo

    Ben Smith score a brilliant try, Nonu putting Smith in the gap

    AB just up the tempo and is running riot with Pumas now

    @JT_BOKBEFOK!: Yip

  22. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:
    September 29th, 2013 at 2:01 am

    AB just keep on diving over ball at rucks and coming in from the side and the ref does nothing

  23. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:
    September 29th, 2013 at 2:03 am

    Surely if you have been getting a penalty for more than 5 times against you fro standing up in the scrum ref should start thinking about yellow?

  24. avatar bryce_in_oz says:
    September 29th, 2013 at 2:05 am

    @Jacques(Bunny):

    Painful…. what’s the PK count now… 10-5?

  25. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:
    September 29th, 2013 at 2:07 am

    @bryce_in_oz: Yip something like that, my biggest problem is the off the feet stuff and from the side from the AB that the ref just ignore

  26. avatar JT_BOKBEFOK! says:
    September 29th, 2013 at 2:08 am

    @Jacques(Bunny):

    Sam Cane as a squint as McCaw! In from the side all the time! :evil:

    12 min for AB to score the fourth try and get bonus point

  28. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:
    September 29th, 2013 at 2:10 am

    @JT_BOKBEFOK!: Just sad JT that they do get away with these type of play and it helps their momentum a shit load

    Finally idiot Peyper gives one against AB coming from the side

  30. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:
    September 29th, 2013 at 2:15 am

  31. avatar Jacques(Bunny) says:
    September 29th, 2013 at 2:18 am

    AB just to good and Peyper just to blind :)

    Boks will have to play out of their skins to win the Championship

    Hehe that’s the difference between the no1 and no2… they can score that much-needed BP when we cannot…

    I’ll take a win over a RC title all the same!

    @Jacques(Bunny): Whether Peyper is too blind or Bunny too biased is a moot point but tonight we had it on Reunion from Ted (ex AB’s coach, Graham Henry): ” I thought Peyper was excellent, best referee we have had all year”

    AND before anyone jumps on the bandwagon, the WE he refers to is Argentina – Ted is currently serving as technical advisor to the Pumas in Buenos Aires from where Reunion was broadcast.

    @out wide:

    I also thought Peyper was excellent.
    I just hope the Argies can sort out their
    sound problems before the end of the decade.

    @Boertjie: About time the IRB starts a rate the referee by nationality scoreboard. I reckon South Africa would sit at the top of that – we are blessed to have so many top flight refs in SA.
