What a game! The Bokke based on stats should have won, the Bok supporters are complaining about the ref, but the Wallabies defense was awesome, everything else of theirs. a tad crap. Cooper was hopeless, they could not build more than 1 or phases, the Bokke had 5 of 15 phases, the Wallabies had none. The Wallaby line outs were crap with the Bokke winning most of theirs, but the Wallaby defence was awesome. 147 tackles to the Bokke 54, the boys must be sore this week.
Sad to see Smit, Matfield, Habana, Burger etc exit, who will no doubt retire, they have been a pleasure to watch. But 11-9, that was close and a the game of the tournament so far, in my little book anyway.
The All Black, Puma game was pretty much what we expected. They tried but when it comes to discipline and Wepu kicking, no excuse. The men stood up from the boys. So in fact they played the curtain raiser after the main event.
The Kaksak is looking forward to the semi final and will definitely get a semi if the Wallabies win. But no win at Eden park since 1986.
Go The Wallabies….
