    Pretty similar teams, it must be said. Functional rather than things of beauty. I doubt JP Pietersen would've been able to do the job Small did on Jonah in '95 tho. That said his hit on the Fijian lock in the quarter was quite impressive.
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
    - The Guardian's Andrew Anthony

    The '95 Boks were stronger in the midfield -- Mulder and le Roux were class, class acts. Not that they got much of a chance with Joubert, Stransky and Joost controlling the ball, but defensively they were brilliant in the final. They were also stronger in the scrum. The '07 side was better in the line-out, although there was no lifting back then so it's hard to compare.
