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....

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.
