Boks may have lost on the scoreboard – but here’s where they won

According to a very reliable source (my buddy “Crazy Barry” on Facebook) Peter de Villiers was heard to defend his team to the media after the game by saying the Boks “only lost on the scoreboard”.

So, if you’re looking for the positives from Saturday’s debacle – here’s where the Boks clearly won against Australia:

  • best hair (Francois Steyn… go you good thing!)
  • coach with the best ‘stache
  • best rendition of Colour Me Badd’s “I Wanna Sex You Up” at the post match drinks fest (Pierre Spies)
  • least ugliest full back (Steyn vs Beale)
  • best pirated music swap (hands down Jean Deysel’s selection of the new Fleet Foxes comfortably beating Quade Cooper’s choice of “the best of Brett Lee’s Bollywood showtunes”)
  • only team that had a player that could fit into Robbie Dean’s cooler-bag as a “prank”  (Gio Aplon)
  • best explanation for the current financial crisis in the Eurozone (Dr Jannie with an impressive Hayekian analysis on how artificially low interest rates lead to an oversupply of credit and the inevitable over investment in long-term construction projects)
  • best impersonation of George W Bush on the bus ride over to the stadium (Gary Gold- after all, he certainly wasn’t coaching the forwards was he?)
  • most complicated shoes (Francois Steyn with a gem of a pair of sneakers that he picked up during his time at Racing Metro)
  • best interpretive dance (Bakkies Botha with an erotically charged version of “The Four Seasons”)
