It started with a handling error by Vermeulen.....the first I can remember from him, he has great hands. Okay, now we have got that out of the way....why was it not defended?
Firstly the pass to Barrett was perfect....launching him at pace. Too much pace for Am who should probably have gone for the ankle tap....or if not stayed on his feet.
But there were three chasers and Willie ahead.....Goodhue was a step behind Allende and level with Mapimpi. The ever present Mostert was running back at top pace but further away.
Allende took himself out first by veering towards Barrett and then slowing down for no reason. Mapimpi hovered and finally set after Goodhue ankle tapping him in the in goal.....Mostert didn't have the pace to catch Goodhue from behind.
The chief villain here was Allende. He should have run Barrett into Willie's tackle, he had step on Goodhue and that pass to the centre should never have been on.
Just one more case in the long history of test losing incidents involving Allende. His mind switches off in these moments.....his body language said c'est la vie.
