Australia + 7.5 looks the bet of the weekend against SA , cant see SA winning this one
NZ - 12.5 looks about right , Argentina are on a high after there super rugby performance but NZ should still be too strong for them

Argentina 25/1 to win Rugby championship

only 1 round this year, and Argies have AB;s and Boks at home

Ignorance doesn't kill you, but it makes you sweat a lot.

All the Northern Hemisphere sides have so called warm up matches in August/Sept. This Championship basically boils down to that, just getting your options right. Looks like the Boks will not be fielding their first 15 which gives the Aussies a chance to win at Ellis Park for the first time in many a year.

I read today that Argentina are including their overseas players in the squad. This will make them stronger and could well be a good bet to make the semi finals in the WC.

Springbok B side. Top 15 left or leave for NZ today and the replacements leave after the game Saturday.

Australia (Win) and Argentina (+12.5 handicap) is a ball hair under 4/1.. Seems a decent price imo

Imo we could beat the Aussies; Ellis Park is a fortress, and we have a strong tight five, so that's where we have an advantage; have not seen the All Black side, but if they field even close to their best side, I think they would carry too many guns for Argentina - but have to admit the margin seems big :unsure:

Hope the bookies make the Bokke odds on for the WC so that we can get a better price on the All Blacks.

My Take on the game-

Well done Bokke and you proved me wrong. On saying that, i am still not very convinced. We beat a very weak Aussie side that at times at the first half had us in tatters but the "bounce" of the ball seems to fall our way.... Never the less, a win is a win. I cannot see the Aussies winning any of their 2 remianing games in the championship and will be awarded the wooden spoon...

Next week will be the litmus test to see where we actually are as a squad.

Onto Jantjies.....Herschel that is.... Firstly i would like to apologize to him for putting him in the same catagory as his namesake.... He really did have a good game, but i will refrain from putting him in the world class category for a while until we see how he fares against "top" opposition and when he is under immense pressure...

One thing i will say about him though, is that it is a breath of fresh air finally having a scrummie that can give such quick service and is able to consistantly give quality ball directly from the ruck/maul WITHOUT having to take two/three steps... Personally, i havent seen a bok scrumhalf that has been able to give that sort of quality since Fourie Du Preez... I really hope his rise does not stop and he continues to improve.. He does look to have tons of potential....

Got it wrong last weekend and doesn't look any easier this weekend , with all the changes being made difficult to tell which combination will fire.
NZ vs SA is always a great game so lets hope the Boks can win a narrow one
Aus vs Arg will also be very interesting , Aussies where very poor last weekend and surely will improve which should see them edge the Argentines

Impressive display, only one major mistake which was Vermeulen knocking on and NZ scoring their try with the advantage. Boks are definitely back and must not blow it against Argentina next week. ABs look very heavy and after last weeks fortunate win over Argentina their WC hat trick dream looks wobbly atm.

The coach has a wonderful problem now. Who to start with mind you it appears that the Boks have two teams capable of beating most. Feel good about the WC now.

We will win this World Cup...lots to be positive about...Pieter-steph du Toit is my current favourite player...doesn't have an off day and an engine to outlast the best of them...

My 2c,

Like most out there, i agree that we were the better side in the 1st half and NZ were the better side in the 2nd half....

The problem i have is although we were the better side and dominated the 1st half, at no stage did i think that we were going to run away with the game or atleast get a decent point tally during the time that we dominated... This showed at half time when we went into the break a point down... I think this can be put down to our defense looking the part, but our offense maybe not....

The second half, our defence carried us through again and we managed to somehow hang in there until the last grasp try that squared us all up... I suppose the pleasing side of this, is that we have not managed to hang in there and the minute we are being forced back we have had the tendency to fall short... This is definately a fighting aspect that Rassie has done wonders with this squad...

The Ref- Imvho, while he did have a good game for the most, i thought there was 2 incidents in the 2nd half that definately could have changed the result of the game.... 1st was the penalty that Mouanga slotted after a clear and blatant knock on. What happened to the tmo? Why did he not help? I thought the new rules was the tmo was allowed to help the ref? 2nd point, and maybe not so obvious was there was a bit of ping pong with the ball close to the NZ 10m line. Definately in a kickable position.Perenara clearly hit the ball back to his backline from an offside position (i still rewinded the segment as i was suprised this wasnt picked up being so close to the touch line), so instead of a Pollard shot for another 3 points, we ended up having to try defend the NZ attack... That is a 6 point swing (assuming the kicks would have gone over) which obviously would have affected the result...


NZ - I might kop some flack for this, but i guess every country probably falls into this category especially in a WC year, when the old dogs really want to have their swansong.... I understand Crotty is their 1st choice inside centre, and he is out injured, but i have no doubt in my mind that SBW is NOT their 2nd best inside centre. I have not once sat up in the last few years and thought, WOW this guy can play... He is living off reputation and it does leave me perplexed that he still manages to get his name on the teamsheet.... The other name that i believe falls into that category is Kieran Read... Not i know this is a bit of a shock, but imo the only way i can see him in the starting line up ahead of Savea is due to his leadership qualities.... I would have Savea in my team 10 times out of 10 before Read.... after all, with the amount of leadership in the side already, surely Reads leadership while good, wouldnt not make the be all and end all.... But on this, lets not forget the additions that still need to be included into this squad (Sam Cane, Ardie Savea, Luamape, Crotty, Squire just to name a few)....


Over all, i thought it was a pleasing result and we have definately taken a good few steps forward...

Lets keep getting better boys :)
