Despite not playing any games, the Boks have widened the gap at the top of world rugby rankings.

The All Blacks have had a loss and a draw against lowly ranked Australia, which decimates points given Australia are like 7th.

And we were too chicken to play these the eyes of the world we have never dethroned the ABs. And the world is right.

So Moz you disagree with Jake who said there is no way we should have played in the RC?

Yes I do....strongly. Rugby is a sport, the playing field isn’t always level. But players compete for the joy of the game and when they  lose it shouldn’t take that away.

We will be less prepared next year for not having competed this year....a mini isolation ....and we saw what that did to our rugby.

This was born of fear to compete, anxiety of losing what we had. But in the process we lost it anyway.

No Moz no player or coach has a fear to compete for if they did they would not be playing at that level

Much was achieved in taking the side from 7 to 1, you don’t just throw away all that work in the name of playing to enjoy, this is not school boy rugby.

Having not played a single test and our players starting domestic rugby months after other nations would have been suicide taking on NZ who’s side would have had 3 tests against Oz before taking us on

Rassie and Jake were spot on in their call not to play, it’s hard enough beating NZ on level terms, virtually impossible on the terms you advocate

If a manager made that call he would be fired

Argentina were bold and took a chance. They made history. I say it's a good thing for Josè Erasmus that he didn't have his team out there, we wouldn't be #1.

IT is again a lot of BS,    The fact is that SA only started allowing games months after NZ and Australia started to play and the teams and players on provincial level is far from what is expected from them,    Mozart is disappointed about the fact that SA is not playing tests yet because he wants the under-performers losing that will bring down the ranking of SA.   It grated him still that the Springboks won the WC - as it undermines his campaign against Erasmus and some of his pet hate players.

"IT is again a lost of BS"

Information Technology is, again, lost bullshit? Where did it go? Why so much bull? Whatever shall we do? :D

If the Marxist libs amongst us are right in their estimation of leadership material, we should elect Lügnerin president of South Africa.

Maybe he can help Joe with his "walahoo" pledge and final give us "moonshine cancer" :silly:
