THE Boks played exceptionally well on Saturday, besides the fact that they missed scoring opportunities. In the first half the Boks took advantage and they shocked the All Blacks.
Though we lost, we have demonstrated that we are slowly coming right and building the future Boks.
We need to go back to the drawing board and sharpen our kicking strategy as we failed to convert all the penalties and including Bryan Habana's try conversion.
I do not want to mention names, but the player that replaced Beast Mtawarira deserves to be given a serious talking to. We need to apply positive discipline as he really cost us the game.
I have realised for the first time that the All Blacks can also be beaten if you take a game directly to them. The Boks must read their opponents and not kick the ball without creating opportunities as it counts against us.
Let us now take a well deserved break and rally behind the Boks on September 29 against Australia on our home soil.
