Deon Fourie made at least three crucial try saving turnovers when the Bools were in position to score. Lesson for the Boks, you go to the WC at your peril without a fetcher.

Overall this was a physical contest, but back play was limited to a few instances and those mostly off turnover ball. One just knew the Bools were going to be turned in those last few chances to win the game. 

One pass, charge, reset… the target was so obvious….not one ball was moved beyond the obvious carrier….the only offload led to Nkosi’s try. Why not be a little more adventurous?

The commentators hyped the game, but it’s only merit was uncertainty….poor skills. Sad for the huge crowd that pitched up….so different to the school match numbers who showed up in Durban

Kwagga's demotion for the man who offers absolutely nothing may be that fine line. Kwagga is the best Bok by a long way. The only consistent difference maker.

Theoretically fetching is Kolisi’s job but who knows which Kolisi will show up.

Fourie was very good - but Roos was ultra-good - he once again showed us how loose forwards should operate in modern rugby.

Roos wasn’t playing Clever, but I’m sure you can explain how he was ‘ultra good’.

What a match...Bulle were up for it, but the Stormers stood tall till the end...Was that 5 in a row? I hope we don't get them in a playoff match...the averages are starting to favor must be their turn soon.

How much longer before the Bokke are allowed to play URC again?

Poor reffing though.

KEO....not a fan of his, but he's right...the reffing and especially the TMO was p!$$ poor and bias AF...absolute disgrace.

PS: I would pick Morne Steyn to play for the Springboks every day of the week.
