Lovely day for it at Loftus.

Jul 06, 2024, 15:46

Do any of you know of a live stream for the game?

Jul 06, 2024, 16:06

And Arendse scores...leaving the Irish 15 for dead.

The most dangerous winger the Boks have ever had.

Well worked score though.

Jul 06, 2024, 16:15

Kwagga made a mistake and no doubt people will be saying he's not a starter.

7-3 to the Boks

Jul 06, 2024, 16:22

Solid start by the Boks. Looking to run the ball. Ireland still look solid when they retain possesion

Jul 06, 2024, 16:26

Our scrums is under pressure

Jul 06, 2024, 16:28


Hi guys!!!

Jul 06, 2024, 16:30

Not sure what is going on in the scrums. Boks getting pushed backward. Not sure if they are getting the bind correctly. 

Jul 06, 2024, 16:31

Ireland kick out on the full. A comedy of errors

Jul 06, 2024, 16:33

The Boks playing rugby.

Nice to see!

Jul 06, 2024, 16:43

Very good try by Ireland. Some very skilful play by the backs

Jul 06, 2024, 16:44

Thanks Draad….yes the boks are playing good….I also think it’s something with the bind….come on boys

Jul 06, 2024, 16:44

Kriel making two errors in a row...and Ireland scoring

Jul 06, 2024, 16:45

And DDA loses valuable possession right before the end of the half.

Best 12 in the world boys

Jul 06, 2024, 16:46

Seriously...on their 22. Gets an easy ball with plenty of space and he walks into getting held up.

Dave, Mike...what say you?

Jul 06, 2024, 16:50

Pretty much a decent half by all the Boks apart from DDA who made one positive stop on the Bok line.

Pollard is human after all.

Second half gonna be good.

Looking forward to seeing Marx back on the field.

Jul 06, 2024, 16:51

Yes the forwards need Marx on the pitch. The Bok pack is looking a bit flat

Jul 06, 2024, 16:54

The Paddies are playing well and took the few chances they got...Bokke not too shabby either.

Jul 06, 2024, 16:54

We loosing possession in the rucks to easy and that Ireland try was not supposed to happen….we have to be absolutely focussed otherwise Ireland can hurt us….only thru mistakes are we letting them back in the game…come boys let’s go.

Jul 06, 2024, 16:57

Bring on Marx, Steenekamp and Koch….definitely playing more ball in hand which is good…. Just those final touches going astray…..keep at boys it will come

Jul 06, 2024, 17:00

Bring Marx on in the first 5 minutes, along with RJ Snyman. 

Jul 06, 2024, 17:01

Willie is such a servant...but dang I miss Willemse.

A bit worried for the second half. Ireland are hanging in there, not letting the game get away from them and it'll only take one or two momentum builders for them to get the wind in their sails.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:11

Ireland getting away with some McCaw sh!t at the breakdown...making Faf work hard.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:12

Geez but Kollisi is doing his thing today….he is putting egg on my face.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:12

Polly pulling a Manie.:angel:

Jul 06, 2024, 17:15

BOMB SQUAD comes on after Jessie messes up once again as DDA chucks the ball at his face.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:16

Nou gan die kak Spat!!come Boys let’s do this

Jul 06, 2024, 17:23

Marx doing what Marx does.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:28


Jul 06, 2024, 17:29

Let off for the Boks.

Exactly the right call though.

Unlucky Ireland. But as Draad said, they've been doing lots of sneaky shit at the rucks. Glad this one was spotted.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:29

Oh my fuck that is bad defence…. Bring Sacha on let’s go! Willie can’t defend and not doing well here….

Jul 06, 2024, 17:31

Manie Pollard :'(

Jul 06, 2024, 17:35

I lost my stream was Lowe,s try awarded?? What,s the score?

Jul 06, 2024, 17:35

Hope the Irish lad is alright...that was nasty. The grass feels like concrete when you bang your head like that.

Not looking good.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:36

Score is 13-8

The Lowe try was disallowed because the Irish played the ball on the ground in the ruck that lead to the try.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:37

Lowe's try disallowed...

Jul 06, 2024, 17:44

Oh thank goodness….let’s go yes

Jul 06, 2024, 17:46


Sorry, but that ball was out. Lowe was touching the ground when the ball hit his leg.

Terrible call from the refs.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:47

Your stream back, M?

Jul 06, 2024, 17:47


Jul 06, 2024, 17:48

Plum, it looked like it, but it's not 100%, so can't overturn on field.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:55

Nah struggling we holding on for dear life come Bokke!!

Jul 06, 2024, 17:55

Draad, the ball changed direction after his foot hit the ground.

For me, it was very clear.

Jul 06, 2024, 17:58

lol Ireland score a nice try.

20-15 to the Boks

Jul 06, 2024, 17:59

5 points...5 min...nice try.

Jul 06, 2024, 18:00

Second big Lowe fckup:D

Jul 06, 2024, 18:01

lol...that scrum though!

Geez, 2 mins to go and you have to front up to a virtually free Bok pack.


Jul 06, 2024, 18:02

Dis nou 'n Bok skrum...vatso!!!

Jul 06, 2024, 18:03

Irish is playing well come on bokke hit back!

Jul 06, 2024, 18:04

Jul 06, 2024, 18:05

lol, nice game.

Ireland fought bravely but the early score from Arendse and the fresh pack coming on was too much.

Strange game though.

Unlucky, Stav

Jul 06, 2024, 18:13

Yes well done boys….Irish is a class act and truly a top team ….man our defence needs attention….we running more ball in hand, but now our defence has taken a dip….Blob or someone if you guys have a link to the full game pls….missed a lot…Gerhard Steenekamp is yster and Koch and Marx the magic man… that scrum saved our bacon ….Kriel has got his form back….well done eventually we beat the Irish!

Jul 06, 2024, 18:17

Enjoyed that, better quality game than the ABS. Irish a tad unlucky but Boks did enough to deserve the win.

Jul 06, 2024, 18:20

Agree all your points.

Jul 06, 2024, 18:26

Mostert was very good today for the short amount of time he was on the field…made more tackles than Pieter, not that pieter was bad, he had good carries but longer on the field than Sous…..Lekke Bokke that was tense and the Irish is coming for us…

Jul 06, 2024, 20:16

PSDT was my MOTM....DdA wasn't half bad either.

Jul 06, 2024, 20:44

Of course PSdT was MotM . . .again!

To think otherwise you'd have to be a rugby noob or a hopelessly biased fool.

I'm pretty sure it's only on this forum that this great Springbok gets castigated week in and week out. Pieter Steph and Eben are two great players - among the best of their generation - yet on this board, one of them is idolized and gushed over, being called the greatest in his position of all time and other such accolades    while the other is demonized, written off as a talentless plodder who makes a lot mistakes, never has a positive impact and pretty much lumbers around the field making no contribution other than "process" tackles.

Like I said, I'm pretty sure it's only on this board but even if it's not, this childish little theory that Eben is the best in the world while PSdT is the worst in the world gets disproved in nearly every game where the two play in the same test . . . as it did today . . . and in the previous game against Wales . . . as it was disproved in the RWC . . . and before that in the semifinal . . . and many, many times before that as well.

Just wait for the shrill shrieks of blasphemy in response to this post but it's true, Pieter-Steph has made a bigger impact than Eben in nearly every game they've both started in the last year or so and more often than not, he is the Springbok who makes the difference between us winning games we would otherwise have lost without him . . . and never more so than in the big games where he always steps up to the plate . . . like in the last two RWC finals . . . which we won!

Only on this board is this great Springbok treated with such disrespect . . . and that's probably because we have so many ignorant and biased rugby noobs.

Well done Bokke!

Jul 06, 2024, 21:36

Who got Mom today? Eben had a little bit more quiet game today, Pieter was better today ….. besides that it was a team effort… this win will give a lot of confidence for the second test and also for our games after that vs AB,OZ and pumas.

Jul 06, 2024, 22:46

Mostert wsz as useless in  tight 5 play as  only he can be.   I do not believe he did anything at brfeakdiwns and the Irish in driving mails used by the Irish he went AWOL.   He alsos tand arolund away from breakdiwnn ball protection/            

Jul 06, 2024, 23:50

Quite a strange little information point. I can't recall the last time I saw a hooker get blown up for a dummy throw-in.

And today I saw it twice. Once in the AB game and once in our game.

Hopefully we have some better games next weekend. I thought the England/AB game fizzled out towards the end and the Bok game felt awkward and like nobody really settled in.

Jul 07, 2024, 01:35

Kolbe and Arendse are my two MOMs. They literally created and finished two tries. Other players who had exceptionally good games include Kriel and Kolisi. Stephanie had his best lineout performance in a while.

Jul 07, 2024, 04:44

Kriel was the official MOTM, but for me PSDT had a super match on the right wing.:D

Jul 07, 2024, 06:22

Kriel seemed to have a high error rate on first viewing. Did plenty of running but not always to good effect, like at 51:20 when he failed to offload to Willie in space on his inside with Arendse running support outside, which would have been a prime try scoring opportunity. I'll watch the game again later, had a distracted viewing last night.

Jul 07, 2024, 07:08

DDA throwing the ball at Jessie's face was the move of the game.

Jessie knocked it on in the end.

DDA plodding into the Irish line, on there 22, and being easily held up and giving away possession, was the second best play of the game.

Then of course, at number 3 we have DDA receiving the ball in a rather innocuous passage of play and suddenly seeming all confused, confusing, Jessie in the process.

I wish I had the time to splice together a video.

Notice how rarely DDA was involved in actual moves.

I can deal with Jessie at 13...but every game that DDA is at 12 is a wasted opportunity for someone with an actual brain.
