Prelims passed; Finals to come

The country is overjoyed right now. The Springboks played the game of rugby without the silly up-and-unders, kicks down field and one dimensional (predictable) gameplan that they usually employ. They ran in five tries, attacked from within their own 22m area, offloaded in the tackle, dummied, defended like champions too… AND Lambie, Jantjies and De Jongh all got to show what they’ve got!

I am taking nothing away from the Bokke. They were superb, however, I feel that the real test is going to come next week against the All Blacks. The Wallabies went into the match crippled by injuries to key players. They were then decimated in the game by more injuries, eventually finishing the game with 14 players. The odds were stacked against the Aussies and South Africa duly thrashed them.

Of course it remains to be seen how the All Blacks are going to approach Saturday’s game in Soweto. They’ve secured the inaugral Rugby Championship title and Steve Hansen may give some fringe players gametime and rest veterans like Richie McCaw. The All Blacks boast some incredible depth though, and I have a feeling that no matter whose name is on the team sheet it will take an effort nothing short of perfect to beat them.

The real test, therefore (for youngsters like Goosen, and also for the new gameplan) will be at 17:00, Saturday in Soccer City.
