Scotland v South Africa

That was embarrassing.  Watching Pat Lambie forced to imitate Morne Steyn and the Boks playing such dull and uninspiring brand of rugby really got me depressed.  I can’t have been the only one who found myself switching the channel away from the Bok match.

Heyneke Meyer has been blessed with the most talented pool of players to pick from, probably in Bok history.  Which former coach has had the ability to choose a flyhalf from between Goosen, Lambie and Jantjies?  Can you imagine what Mallet would have done with those players?  Which coach would have been so idiotic as to look at this list of talent and then pick Morne “the revolving turnstile” Steyn for half a season?

At first it was kind of funny to see Meyer persist with Zane Kirchner at fullback, now seeing Zane Kirchner lining up during the anthems is just sad, depressing and lonely.  Ruan Pienaar clears the ball from a ruck about as fast as a pensioner at the Meadowridge Park n Shop ATM.

We should be putting fifty on the Scots.  Not talking about how a “win is a win”.  Pathetic.

  1. Heh, hee. Here in Wales, everytime the coaches or players start opening their mouths to the press about “We are good enough to win all the autumn matches..” the whole country groans from the kiss of death. The team under-performs and gets whooped by Argentina & Samoa.

    It is the same with Eddie Butler’s commentary for kickers during a penalty.. “He has a fantastic record with 9 out of 9 kicks so far….” then the ball swerves wide past the posts and the team loses from the missed kick.

  2. I can’t believe they lost to Samoa. What do the Samoans have on the Welsh?
