South Africa will field the same starting 15 and the same bench as they did for their 38-12 humbling of Australia in Brisbane last weekend. Date September 11, 2013 – 2:02PM Zane Kirchner is upended by Israel Folau in Brisbane. Photo:…
I have been mulling over a subject for my last column of 2012 for about a month now.
Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer applauded his team’s defence, discipline and guts after South Africa edged out England 16-15 at Twickenham on Saturday.
It is a term one of the most successful coaches of Springbok rugby used on the magazine show Boots & All last night to describe Heyneke Meyer and our current Springbok playing style.
Things in Springbok rugby are never normal or straight-forward, it always shifts between the insane and the absurd and this week there was a big swing towards the latter.
Our very own Brendon Shields, who is under a self-imposed ban from blogging till now, shares his views on how we should re-shape and re-think how we use the whole team.
Ek kan vandag maklik skryf oor hoe bekakkenswaardig die Springbokke in Nasrec was teen die All Blacks gistermiddag, maar dit sal te maklik wees.
Julle sal my vergewe as ek nie té liries raak oor die Bokke se wen oor die Wallabies gister nie, vir die eerste keer die jaar het hulle eenvoudig ’n wen gekry wat hulle verwag het om te kry.
It is easy to criticize and say what Meyer is not getting right at the moment, but has anyone sat back to consider what he is being quite successful in doing in only 7 tests?
Kan dit waar wees? Kan twee afrigters van totale teenoorgestelde pole hulle in dieselfde posisie vind op dieselfde stadium van hulle loopbane?
Greg Growden from the Sydney Morning Herald gives us the Aussie view from this weekend’s test.
Die Springbokke se vertoning gister teen die Wallabies het weereens bewys dat Suid-Afrikaanse afrigters hulle te veel bemoei met wat hulle nie het nie, eerder as om dit wat hulle wel het tot sy volle potensiaal aan te wind.
Under pressure … the respective coaches, Robbie Deans and Heyneke Meyer, enter this encounter with critics banging at the door. Date September 7, 2012 Paul Cully Photo: John Selkirk Those old enough to have grey hairs will have allowed themselves…
SPRINGBOKS supporters still wince when reminded of it, but South African coaching staff will not be using the horrid memories of last year’s World Cup exit to motivate their team against the Wallabies. Date September 6, 2012 Greg Growden Chief…
He is only going into his 6th test as Springbok coach having yet to taste defeat, but Heyneke Meyer already finds himself under enormous pressure in the lead up to the test against Australia this weekend.
