All credit to the ABs they showed great commitment to beat a very good Springbok team 23-18. Key substitutions at the end, with Kelleher coming on i thought. Mr Henry has now been in charge of vicories against all the top sides, bar France, and us of course!!

Considering the possession and territory that the ABs had they should'ev massacred the Boks! They didn't! In fact the Boks made the ABs look ordinary, particualrly with their combination of rush and drift defense! They worked that very well!!!

Once the "Henry effect" has worn off, they (the ABs) will be found wanting and the NZ supporters will be calling for his head.

Hi again Steve,

(a) I want Wales to be as ordinary as the "All Blacks".

(b) I want Wales to be as ordinary as the "Boks"

If there is a god "Please make Wales ordinary"

Just for one teeny weeny season.

Just watched the game, and both teams are deep in transition, not necessarily personnel wise, but in terms of style of play.

South Africa to me played to their undoubted strengths, namely their defense, lapses in concentration, namely off sides cost them dear, without those offsides they would have won. Not sure if the Boks, hell any team, can defend that long and that hard without those lapses in concentration, I have a feeling that theres more to come from the Boks though.

New Zealand didnt play to their strengths in my opinion, they played to their own weaknesses, and left their strengths behind. They won a game playing a style IMO that was a little foreign to them. These weaknesses of theirs will improve and then they can add in their strengths and noone will match up

From the few Southern Hmisphere residents I know that both nations, although desire victory in any competition, view the 3N this year and any other as just preparatory for the RWC. I think especially in the All Blacks case theres a hell of a lot more to come.

Australia come 1997 will be nowhere near in the 3N and noone will be anywhere near these two in the 97 RWC.

Dai, it all depends what handicap the Bookies are offering and the associated odds(normally released thurs before match...)...on verra. At least if you'd followed my advice(twas the bookies who offered 15 pts start!) you'd have won !? 8) :twisted:

When it comes to the level of ordinary in the southern hemisphere, I suspect it's extr-ordanry compared to some of the sides up here in the northern hemisphere. An ordinary performance by a SH side is, perhaps, akin to a very good performance by some of the NH sides.
