the Springboks. Two weeks ago they were a complete rabble and were routed by the Wallabies in Sydney. The only thing that stopped a complete flogging was the nice run the ref gave the Springboks to keep them in the game. Put them at Ellis Park though, and what a different team. They belted the Aussies from the opening whistle, rushed up in defence, and committed 4 men to nearly every tackle. Absolutely ferocious and the Wobblies had no answers and were comprehensively beaten. I don't think the most skillful team won last night. The most committed team did. Manly can learn from that. It seems our boys are holding back, nursing injuries and not showing desparation. Seems to me that they need to go out on the field next week that they will do whatever it takes to win, and that they will win every contest that they can - in the tackle, diving on losse balls, charging down kicks, covering their mate etc. If they come off the field with no gas left in the tank then we're a chance. Hasler could do a lot worse than make the lads watch that Test MAtch to see the possibilities when EVERYTHING is put on the line. I'd love to see our pack be as feral as the Boks were last night.
