It was 18 minutes of some brilliant rugby in that first half to take a comfortable 24-3 lead.
At this moment I am sure most Bok supporters was thinking to start the braai early and give the remote to the wife and kids.
England was dominate in all aspects of the game and created space through simple game play first from their forwards to pull defence in and spread it wide where the gabs appeared.
Must say I was wondering about my statement earlier in the week where I said we have the best defensive coach in the world in Nienaber.
It took the Springboks twenty minutes to get into the game and play a brand we always wanted from them.
There was a few outstanding payers for the Springboks no one more than Willie Le Roux and man of the match Faf De Klerk.
The vision and control of both these players was just simply outstanding.
RG Snyman had the perfect test debut. The Lock from the Bulls showed us what a special player he really is.
He made 9 carriers, 49 meters, got over the gainline 3 times, made 9 tackles and stole that crucial last England lineout which took the game away from the visitors.
The other overseas player in the team that had a massive game was Duane “Thor” Vermeulen. The big man had a huge impact in the game and help captain Kolisi in leading this team.
He made 13 carriers, 51 meters, got over the gainline 4 times, made 6 tackles and got 2 crucial turnovers as well.
The hard work was done by the tight five after that first 18 minutes and one must acknowledge the midfield. They were found wanted in that period but came good for the rest of the game.
One aspects we always complained about the Boks in recent years has been there handling and skills, well they showed plenty of that and if this id what Rassie and his team can achieve with these players in two weeks think what they can do in the next few years.
One do not need to get ahead of one self here. There are plenty to work on and plenty that still need to be improve but hell this was a great start for them.
We need to touch on Willie Le Roux and Faf de Klerk. The impact these two players had on this team was huge.
Faf played as good if not better than when we saw him playing for the great Lions teams a few years ago.
The player had evolve and has become a great 9 and all the praises he got from his club in England was justified.
The most impressive part of Faf game was his game management and the way he started that fight back in the first half.
His serves was brilliant and his tactical game as good. He deserved the man of the match award and hopefully we have now the 9 that can take us to the World Cup next year.
Willie Le Roux was also the other player who was absolutely brilliant.
The way he commanded the attack of the Boks was something special on the night. He had a hand in all the first half tries of the Boks and was rewarded with one for himself as well.
On the wings Nkosi and Dyantyi had a good start to there Springbok career.
Nkosi had some lapses on defence in that first half but came back with two great tries to make up for it.
He almost always get over the advantage line and his speed is what we always wanted for the Boks.
It will be fun to rate the players this weekend but this is only the first test and there is long and hard work lying ahead for this series and the building to next years Word Cup.
