….maybe too much trouble for Harrassmus to come riding in? Nienaber will be blamed by the fools who have been beating the Harrassmus drum. But this is Harrassmus’ team and his tactics and his coaching staff including Stick who couldn’t coach an U11 team to pass. And his political er inspirational captain
The disastrous decline in handling among our forwards was there to see all year.
What wasn’t because it wasn’t tested was the defensive weakness of the Dud Allende, Am, Mapimpi axis. Our centres contrived to always be where the threat wasn’t. Except once Allende was in place to at least be proactive and rush forward to do the smother tackle as Kellaway did for Oz. But he did the one thing that would never help, floated too late onto the outside man.
These weaknesses have been obvious to fair minded fans for months.
There was also no fighting spirit in this team they were beaten mentally after the first Aussie try….the captain was a non entity. And this ref bent over backwards for the Boks who got every 50/50 call. It wasn’t enough.
There were two Springboks on the park today….Faf who totally made our try and Etzebeth who stole crucial ball, not used by our toothless runners.
This was a humiliation and takes us right back to square one.
