Bok fans are a remarkable bunch.. the howls of persecution from officials in a loss last week are now being weaponised into a right to control officials on the back of this ‘victory’

The Wrap: Springboks victory surge vindicates Erasmus, but at what cost?

Your only problem with that silly rude comment that it based upon zero

The Springboks handle the British and Irish Lions 27-9 to level the series

Not tough.. i had no dog in the fight. It was just tough to watch. If you liked it mate good luck to you, there’s plenty of paint drying and grass growing somewhere to keep you happy

At least its getting the stadium crowd it deserves

The boks have a patent on that style of rugby no question. The fact that others can be dragged into it reflects poorly on them too

Of course they did, it takes two to tango.. or in this case death waltz. Are you trying to deliberately trying to conflate my comments into being exclusively a rant about Bok Ball? The difference is however that the Lions could actually play a different style but decided on trying to out bore the opposition, for the Boks that is their Plan A-Z

I’ve played and watched rugby for decades and totally appreciate all aspects of the game. There is however a stark difference between a decent spectacle featuring a broad range of skills and that dire, win at all costs, play for penalties, kick the skin off the ball rubbish that these two tests have dished up. Criticism of Rugby League for being formulaic may be valid to an extent but not when compared to bok ball

Bok rugby is the epitome of predictable. You mock league for the five hit ups and kick and yet embrace endless box kicking?

Sadly I can’t help myself either.. a bit like a car crash, it’s awful but you can’t help but look even though you know you shouldn’t

Well that was a game for the ages.. as in it will take ages for any fan of free flowing rugby to watch a test between these two sides again. Boxkickapalooza zzzzzzz

I’m pretty sure the Tigers were ahead of the curve last night… in the second half they maintained a 1.5m distance in defence

'I didn't feel respected': Springboks captain backs Erasmus rant on Aussie ref

And just like McEnroe it was gamesmanship to influence decisions.. great analogy in putting forward a losing argument

'I didn't feel respected': Springboks captain backs Erasmus rant on Aussie ref

Oh please.. so the kiwis and aussies are ganging up on the poor old saffas? When did this happen anytime??

They aren’t great winners either mate

Totally agree other than using the word style in the same sentence as SA.

“A slightly more progressive version of Luke Brooks” .. that’s what I call harsh but very fair. The most overhyped player in the comp

Bea Arthur from the golden girls would be better

This outburst is reminiscent of an awful parent explaining why his little bloke couldn’t possibly be the troublemaker at school to all the other parents who want the kid expelled

Rushing Moses back will just add another crab running bomb kicker. Gutherson is the only player in their backline who looks like he has a clue.

Who knows how he’ll play when he isn’t carrying the expectation of a city on his back.? My guess is he will do much better

Can South Sydney bring back the old Anthony Milford?

Tuquiri and Sailor were probably the first pair but there were a number of big units before those two. Eric Grothe, John Ribot, Terry Fahey, Steve Knight were all in the same mould

The secret statistic behind the top NRL teams

Brad Arthur is without doubt the luckiest coach in the NRL, he’s been given unparalleled support from Eels fans and the Club despite producing one disappointing season after another since 2014. Most clubs and fans would’ve hung him out to dry years ago. His response to Sterling’s recent criticism sums him up.. he pointed to a stat in the Raiders game that showed that his team had passed the ball umpteen times as evidence of a commitment to playing expansive football. Just a reminder to him, you lost the game and were incapable of doing anything with all that ball movement.

No great options from those listed. When Luke Brooks is the stand out option you’ve got serious problems.

Is a halfback the missing piece to Craig Fitzgibbon's Cronulla premiership puzzle?
