Seven-point favour for Boks?

The Witness - - CLASSIFIEDS / SPORT -

SO Aus won 23-18 but the Boks gave away seven points with a line-out dis­as­ter of such epic pro­por­tions it could only be to end Aussie’s three-match los­ing streak blues to keep em in the Su­per Rugby se­ries? If so Aus owes SA a big favour in re­turn, it could come at any mo­ment so be­ware Aus­tralia?

Maybe New Zealand can be per­suaded to try chuck our back line a free­bie for a match­win­ning seven points try and agree not to score any other points in the sec­ond half?

Sure it would be nearly im­pos­si­ble to be­lieve it was un­in­ten­tional but if this is how Su­per Rugby works nowa­days, we shall see?

Boks, In the mean­time stick to do­ing the ba­sics well in­stead of throw­ing the ball past the back of the line-out, the rugby balls shape means the bounce will only go right some of the time!

When de­fend­ing your try-line, the uni­verse’s sense of irony means such plans will sim­ply never go well? ROB NI­CO­LAI, How­ick
