There were a few great moments this weekend in the test matches and some really ordinary ones.
Unfortunately most of the ordinary and poor things came from our Springboks when they played England on a wet Newlands pitch.
Although the team had its moments they were outsmarted and outplayed by England in all aspects of the test.
Erasmus made a few crucial changes to the team for the final test but as he said afterwards the changes did not made the mistakes and did not gave away the penalties.
It was more a case of individuals’ game management and mistakes than the system that Erasmus and his coaches have implemented, which immedately raises questions over whether he will be making the same excuses in TRC.
The halfback pair in Faf and Jantjies did not have the same impact as Faf and Pollard. Jantjies had a test that he will want to forget.
There was not the dominance in the set pieces as we have now come to expect from this team and England dominated the collisions.
Giving away 14 penalties against a side with the boot of Farrell never works on a day like the one they got at Newlands and they will punish you. However that counts both ways as England had to play in the same conditions in all honesty.
England had it to easy to get the scoreboard ticking over and once the try from May was scored the game was too far ahead for the Springboks to catch up, just like the first test.
They had their opportunities but they were not clinical in their execution although England was much better as a unit than in the first two tests.
Some of the players that Erasmus brought into this test did not can like tooked their chances.
The battle was lost up front and this was particularly evident at rucks where England were able to turnover ball almost at will.
The Springbok kicking game lacked the accuracy just like the previous two tests and with poor chasing just gave the ball back to England, where England was putting a lot of pressure on the Springboks with their tactical kicking.
Hard lessons would have been learned from this test and Erasmus would have also seen how some players reacted in these conditions.
From a players point of view we missed the attacking confidence and ability from Le Roux. His organisation on defence and attack was missed.
Pollard manages the game much better and this may have been Jantjies last chance as he looked more and more average at this level.
I know I am gonna get a lot of comments on this but De Allende power in the midfield was missed on a day like today. Esterhuizen did not have the best of opportunities with the wet conditions but he also did not make any impact.
Chilliboy also did not do anything to suggest he is the third best hooker for the Springboks. He gave away silly penalties and had no effect with ball in hand.
All in all it was a disappointing performance but one that the squad will have learned from.
