Did not like the reffing much this week for either match...

But good from SA in the end. I really like Damien at 10... if we could teach pollard to tackle would hopefully replace de Allende... but that is not gonna happen.

Pleasantly surprised by the ABs. Our variation in performance from week to week is quite something. Also the ressurrection of Tyrel Lomax might be my biggest own since BJ Watling. I was calling for the Hurricanes to drop him all year.

Does Willemse play much 10 before this? Looks really good tbh. No more Elton required.

He started out at 10 for the Stormers/Western Province when he was being touted as the next big thing, but struggled there a bit. He's definitely improved since moving to 12/15 (all his previous starts for the Boks have been at 15) and he's now shown that he can do a good job at 10, but the big concern would be his goal kicking. It's maybe a little harsh to judge him on the two conversions he missed as they were from out wide and better kickers have been known to miss those as well, but it's still not ideal for him to be the first choice kicker.

Wallabies team probably the weakest I've seen ever, and that's impressive given the teams named the last couple years.

I'll gladly eat humble pie, but there is no way a Gordon/Foley combo gives us anything.

If Foley is the best option, we might as well throw in a talented 17 year old (thinking Ponsbury-Smith-Jones here) at 10 for the experience.

Nah, he’d get smashed

Just have to take our beating, hope that we get some blokes back from injury and that a bunch of Ellas walk into training off the beach at some point in the future

Deadset. These ****s have hands like feet. How many hours do you spend practicing to drop every ****ing pass?
