The win actually came as a surprise to me - we had to take the field with two weak spots - De Jongh and Steenkamp. Must say the first one did zilch as a player and the second one was a bit better than expected. Not much - but he was better than in the Scotland game where he really served a rating of 3/10 - his relaitic rating today was 5/10.
What was De Jongh up to today? I did notice there was a number 13 player running onto the field - but he did zilch today - he never followed up moves that could have been carried further if their was a player avaulable to off-load to. Example the kick of Lambie caught by Pietersen - where the latter was looking for a player to off-laod to and there was one huge blank - because one would have expected from De Jongh to be there - but he was missing.
Despite the above - the Springboks did manage an unexpected and unconvincing win. I also want to credit the win to rank stupidity of the POMS. That last penalty should hve been a corner kick and a try would have been difficult to stop.
I think once again - your other pet hate Coetzee contributed massively to the defences of the Springboks and should have been given a medal for helping us winning the match
