Oct 08, 2019, 12:22

Nkosi grabs the first box kick out of the air, DA finds a touch on the red 22.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:23

Silky skills from Allende. Great line kick. Then ends movement to score. Snyman did well. 

Oct 08, 2019, 12:23

Steyn beats his first tackle on the wing. Snyman through a massive gap midfield, two meters short.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:24

Easy run in for DA off the Jantjies pass, 7-0 Boks.


Oct 08, 2019, 12:24

Great opportunity for Reinach. 

Oct 08, 2019, 12:26

Steyn kicks deep, red return not out. Boks run it wide. Plenty of half gaps in the red defense.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:27

Oh boy

Oct 08, 2019, 12:27

Nice hands Kwagga who sends Nkosi in. 

Boks lead 12- 9 as JW wonders if Boks can pull off a win. :D

Oct 08, 2019, 12:28

Nkosi now scores off a nice Kwagga offload.


Oct 08, 2019, 12:28

Môre manne, 

Two easy scores, looks like it might be a hard day at the office for the Can Cans.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:28

Never mind Beeno's fake news, the score is 12-0, not 12-9.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:29

RG continuing to impress.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:29

Howzit Xavi.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:29

Fake news nothing burger by Beeno of all people.:D

Oct 08, 2019, 12:30

Wow. Reinach with the gas!!


Oct 08, 2019, 12:30

Fuck me Reinach - awesome

Oct 08, 2019, 12:30

Hola Pakie!

Oct 08, 2019, 12:31

There is the brilliance of Reinach. Note the pace. 

Jantjes has done very little in his appearances and Reinach could make the match 23 in quarterfinals. 

Boks lead 19-0

Oct 08, 2019, 12:32

Reinach with a brilliant individual effort, break from the ruck, kick ahead, gather, score.




Oct 08, 2019, 12:34

Boks have pacy pack. 

Oct 08, 2019, 12:34

Agree Dave.


Oct 08, 2019, 12:35

Willemse pushes the offload, goes forward.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:35

Boks destroy Canada scrum. 

Oct 08, 2019, 12:37

Red scrum struggling just a little bit.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:37

For a lot of these guys this will be their last game at the WC and they're absolutely thrashing it.

Will be interesting to see if they can maintain the pace through the 2nd half.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:38

Reinach snipes and scores. 

Oct 08, 2019, 12:39

Boks have an attacking lineout after a scrum penalty.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:39

Raainag is on the money.


Oct 08, 2019, 12:40

Another big bust from Snyman and Reinach is over from the ruck.


Oct 08, 2019, 12:41

Just wow:O

Oct 08, 2019, 12:41

24-0

Oct 08, 2019, 12:42

Brilliant cross kick by Jantjes gathered by Gelant and Reinach finishes off for hatrick. :D

Oct 08, 2019, 12:42

Great support running from Reinach and he's in for what must be the fastest WC hat-trick??

Oct 08, 2019, 12:42

I think Reinach should declare his innings as closed.


Oct 08, 2019, 12:43

LOL, another try for Reinach. Kick pass from inside the 22 Jantjies to Gelant, to DA to Reinach.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:43

They're scoring faster than your feed Pakie:)

Oct 08, 2019, 12:44

Reinach going for six and out Blikkies:D

Oct 08, 2019, 12:44

33-0

Oct 08, 2019, 12:44

Gelant is slooow though.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:44

Haha Xavi, yes they are.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:45

CC loving every minute! :D

Oct 08, 2019, 12:45

You could play Reinach on the wing he is that fast. 

Oct 08, 2019, 12:47

Expect Willemse to go on here.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:48

Canada defense settling a bit now.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:48

Reinachs hat-trick confirmed as fastest at a WC.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:50

Great finish Gelant. 

Boks lead 40-0

Oct 08, 2019, 12:50

Gelant jinxes his way over. Little dummy run from DA, pass wide, just too easy.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:50

Another score.

Williamse and Gelant are ball players.

They backs feel instantly more dangerous with this configuration.


Oct 08, 2019, 12:54

Oupa Schalk getting cramps, forgot to take his salt pills this morning.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:54

Jantjes having a good game. 

Oct 08, 2019, 12:56

Nice little rumble from Canada. Lineout deep.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:56

"They backs feel instantly more dangerous with this configuration."


Let's not get too carried away here. I suspect the reason the Bok backs are looking better is less to do with the configuration or selections and more to do with the non-existent Canadian defence.

Go Bokke. Put a hundred over these palookas!

Oct 08, 2019, 12:57

Vd Merwe just couldn't gather the cross kick otherwise Canada was in.


Oct 08, 2019, 12:58

Brits is a very skilful player Pakster

Oct 08, 2019, 12:59

That was a poor tackle attempt from Gelant, on par with Le Roux.

Oct 08, 2019, 12:59

I know Beeno, my Oupa comments are tongue in cheek.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:00

I hope this isn't a red card.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:01

Trouble for Canada, shoulder onto the neck at the ruck.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:01

first century of the RWC ?


Oct 08, 2019, 13:02

Yes it looks like a red. Very deliberate, 

Pity but correct decision. 

Oct 08, 2019, 13:02

Letter of the law but absolutely ruins the game now.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:02

Now Canada are a man down.

Bad to worse.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:03

Lamentable, but again, the players know the law. Stay away from the neck/head.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:03

Gelant doing what he can to even the chances for the Cannucks.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:05

Big knock from Gelant after a nice break by Schalk.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:05

Red 14 asleep as his 15 tries a sharp play.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:06

Kwagga fumbles on the line.

Arghhh!!!

Oct 08, 2019, 13:06

Everybody trying to get their name on the score sheet messing up a promising phase of play.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:07

Steyn releases Nkosi, 1m short, Kwagga knocks at the breakdown.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:07

Lol Steyn with the intercept and score :D:D

Oct 08, 2019, 13:08

The invisible Steyn intercepts and scores. 

Man forgot he was on the park! 

Oct 08, 2019, 13:08

Steyn intercepts and scores.


Oct 08, 2019, 13:08

Doesn't change a thing. Its a training run. Canada wouldn't bet a currie cup team or an NPC team yhey way they are playing.

Boks are playing well though, finally showing something on attack

Oct 08, 2019, 13:10

47-0 half time.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:11

Fake news again Beans?:D

Excellent vision and then the power to get to the line!! :angel:;)

Oct 08, 2019, 13:12

And the superhuman reaction speed, Xavi.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:12

Reinach and Snyman challenging for first team places. 

Oct 08, 2019, 13:12

True Crusfan, nothing to take away from that half but a good hit out and some memories for the dirt trackers.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:15

What has caught my attention is that after all the talk been about the humidity and sweaty balls:D there's only been 2 or 3 knock ons from the Bokke. Some good skills on show.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:23

Time to play around

Give Willie game time to rediscover his form

Bring him on at 15, move Willemse to 12, Gelant to 13 and play Reinach on the wing

Oct 08, 2019, 13:24

Like the look of your halfback, good turn of speed and making good decisions this game.

Cant say i know much about him though. Age? Who does he usually play for?

Oct 08, 2019, 13:26

Kobus Reinach. Used to play for Natal but now Northampton Saints in the Premiership.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:30

Good start for Canada.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:31

14 man Canada score 

Oct 08, 2019, 13:31

Cobus Reinach is the son of the late Springbok winger Jaco Reinach who also held the South African 400m record for nearly 30 years.

I once played a game of rugby against Jaco Reinach. Never got close enough to him to be embarrassed. Cobus inherited his dad's speed!

Oct 08, 2019, 13:31

Boo, give them the try.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:31

And they score. Great little move from the ruck to get close.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:32

Talking of embarrassing, Canada score. 

Oct 08, 2019, 13:32

Interference?

Oct 08, 2019, 13:33

Try stands.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:33

Well make sure you coach doesn't select him again please :)

Oct 08, 2019, 13:33

Yeah they deserved it, nice little dummy runner bamboozling Jantjies & Steyn.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:33

If it was a closer score it might not have been given according to the commentators??

Oct 08, 2019, 13:36

Boks close chasing the DA kick through.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:37

Looked okay to me Xavi, I couldn't see him interfering with the tacklers other than briefly unsighting them. Dunno.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:38

Jantjies on for Reinach.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:39

As has become customary Jantjies starts out passing high.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:39

Britz chatting up the ladies on the sideline;) Good man!

Oct 08, 2019, 13:40

And now the try. Old boy having a great tournament.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:40

Frans M & Kitsy on.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:41

Haha, Oupa Schalk dances over. Great stuff.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:43

Old boy in need of his salt pills now Pakie:D

Oct 08, 2019, 13:43

DA should surely get a rest about now.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:44

Mostert has made a few errors now, starting to compound them. Might be  a good idea to sub him now.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:47

Marx knocks his first touch.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:48

LOL, what a skew throw by the Reds.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:48

Yeah I don't think Mostert has done his chances any good today.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:51

Magic offload Nkosi and Boks almost get there again.


Oct 08, 2019, 13:51

Steyn moves to 13?? Shows good hand and not greedy, puts Willemse in.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:53

Look at that racist passing to a colored guy to score, yes.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:54

61-7 for those who are still counting.

Oct 08, 2019, 13:56

14-7 in the second half, have to give Canada some credit in the 2nd half

Oct 08, 2019, 13:59

Malherbe with a good score. 

Oct 08, 2019, 13:59

Malherbe over. Good period of attack by the Boks.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:02

Both Jantjies throwing poor passes.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:03

Nkosi is the best back in SA.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:03

Another high pass H Jantjies. This is without a doubt a weakness in his game.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:04

Jantjies, very sloppy passing today.

Nkosi and Willemse save the day.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:05

Vd Merwe drops the ball as Canada hot on attack.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:06

So how do you lot rate that 2nd half?

19-7 in the 2nd half against 14 men

Oct 08, 2019, 14:06

Jantjies again sloppy, after Reinachs first half display is he playing his way out of the 1/4rs?


RG named MOTM, well deserved.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:08

Well that was fun, but well done to 14 Canadians for a superb effort in the second half.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:22

RG Snyman a deserved MOTM. Well done to Canada on a gutsy second half. Am I right in saying they conceded fewer points with 14 men on the field than with 15?

Oct 08, 2019, 14:23

Beeno has gone quiet i see. No comment to make?

Have to be dissapointed in the 2nd half after sich a great start. Thought the Boks would have easily cracked a hundred

Oct 08, 2019, 14:25

Yep 19-7 in the 2nd half. Canada were way better but no excuse for such a low score with them being a man down.

Cant remember the score when the red card came out but it must be close

Oct 08, 2019, 14:33

Similar to NZ being kept very quiet for the first 35 minutes against Namibia. Wouldnt you say, Sader?

Oct 08, 2019, 14:35

After the red card it was a case of job done I think. 

Hard to keep that motivation and energy going back on the pitch after half time. They lost the shape they had at the start and the intensity was lacking as the game opened up. Was always going to be an ask after that first half frenzy.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:38

Also if anything the subs that came on were probably better off staying in the hotel tonight. Jantjies was poor and Pollard also had a few wayward passes which hindered play.

Elton threw a few shockers in those last 10 minutes as well. Canada wriggled of the hook as we let the line slacken.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:41

Not very similar at all. After a great start then the red you would expect a huge score to be run up.

Canada certainly played much better in that 2nd half, great how they came back.

Yes i was dissapointed in our first half but come on you cant tell me you are happy with that 2nd half

Oct 08, 2019, 14:48

Crusadertwit doubtless Rassie said ease up on the Cans no need to rub it in too much boys. Avoid injuries etc. 

Rassie looking at the big picture. 


Oct 08, 2019, 14:48

I'm as happy with the second half in our game as what you are with the first half in yours.

Exactly as happy.

To the sixth decimal.

Oct 08, 2019, 14:53

Too many bad passes by Boks. Can't understand it. These guys are professionals who practice every day but throw some shocking passes. 

Oct 08, 2019, 21:59

Well Beeno et. al, at least Bok fans can rest assured that they haven't pealed too soon,:P

Oct 09, 2019, 07:17

Well Beeno et. al, at least Bok fans can rest assured that they haven't pealed too soon

Pealed? Oh you Kiwis and your unorthodox use of the English vocabulary, what a lark :angel:
