    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.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    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.
