  1. Said it last week and say it again, the Springboks is at least 20 points better than Pumas, if they do not show that then we did not play to our abilities…

    At least no one can bitch about the ref as this week it is a Kiwi

  2. @Jacques:

    Since the Championship started in 2012, we have not been 20 points better than the Pumas when we play in Argentina.

    2012: Boks 16 – 16 Pumas
    2013: Boks 22 – 17 Pumas
    2014: Boks 33 – 31 Pumas

    We do not have a first choice team out there this time, why do you expect a 20 point margin?

  3. Janee we should be pining these argies into next week but I have my doubts with the OU perde. Alberts has got zero ganetine and Psdt also no match sharpnesd, definitely must have selections, but Matfield is one step back.

    I think these argies could take us. If kannie dup is playing and bismarck out – I think our tight 5 going to get massacred / them Argentinian Cowboys going to be roasting bokke tight 5 nuts on their Braai or whatever they call it
