What the Sharks did to the Bulls this weekend is what the Boks should have done to England.
Total forward dominance, in particular the scrums was converted into points unlike the Boks numerous missed opportunities
Thomas du Toit’s conversion from loosehead to tighthead is complete - he has been dominant there all year and along with Mchunu they destroyed the Bulls scrum.
It was good to see the great ball carrying Mchunu showing he can scrum as well.
The loss of Nyakane at tighthead for the Bulls is huge, poor young Hunt on his Bulls debut got penalised at will.
Similane at 13 for the Lions is a pleasure to watch with ball in hand - so good to see a centre use pace and stepping to beat his opponents. He does look to have bulked up a little but needs to be closer to 100kg than 90 to be a test consideration but for now he looks the ideal backup to Am at 13 for the Boks
