That wasn't a test match, it was like playing a second tier nation. The Boks just gave away too much possession and missed their one on one tackles. The ABs D was very good and they appeared to have a limited attack.
The ABs were very good as a team and only Hames stood out for me as playing badly by giving away too many penalties and the dropped ball.
Some exceptionally good tries with finishing we were missing vs Lions.
I thought Cane was outstanding tonight, his relentless defence and his turnovers are truly impressive.
A Smith was again very good with his speed and vision. TJ again was good and seems to have reigned in his theatrics?
S Barrett is a very busy player and gave us another quality lineout option. I think he has probably cemented that bench spot. Perhaps Fifita and Barrett offer better bench cover than Savea.
Reiko is a special player who appears to just be a natural at this level. His combination of pace and strength is just incredible.
I also noticed our ruck defence appeared improved, the Boks appeared to try and run through the ruck a few times like Oz did with little success.
And finally I loved the speed and moves off the back of the lineout, that must be a nightmare to defend. Well played ABs.
I noticed one poster said Owens at a shocker? From my biased view I thought it was one of his best games, he was confident, explained every decision well and seemed to know what was going on at scrum time. The officiating at the ruck is always tricky, I can recall plenty of Boks doing their best impression of Superman flying over rucks off their feet.
