You can’t look at it that way….Ireland, France, the ABs made way more runs than us. So as a percentage their kicking was way less. Check it out.

And give us the total meters gained, defenders beaten and clean breaks as well.

Stop trying to put lipstick on the pig Dave. We won by kicking the leather off the ball and tackling the snot out of our opponents. It was glorious…don’t try to make it something else.

The Boks kicked more in the semi's and final with Pollard and Faff. 

With Reinach and Libbok the ball went down the line more, especially when Esterhuizen was at 12.

Dave I think the fake Bok supporters live in an echo chamber where one of them take a stance on matters, the others agree and they keep reinforcing their views and get more extreme as times go by. 

Look how absurd Mozzz and Doos look today. It's been a journey. 

This idea we kick the ball away more than others is not supported by the stats. Also our possession stats are low because we at times choose to let our opponents play with the ball and make mistakes.

Mozzzz spinning like a top. 

Almost everything he posts is an attempt to denigrate the Boks and their coach. All of which has left him buried under a mountain of EGG!

Poor HasBeen….let me draw you a picture. In the French game:

France 154 runs/24 kicks

Boks 80 runs/ 27kicks.

It looks like France only kicked slightly less than us….but that ignores how much they had the ball. When you calculate kicking as a % of possession they kicked 13.4% of the time.

The Boks kicked 25.2% of the time. Nearly twice as much.  You have totally missed the possession variable….but then you aren’t the sharpest pencil on the box.

Poor Moffie, he's still feeling a bit "dispirited" after the Boks won.


Makes it all that much sweeter for the rest of us!

Not at all….I have shifted headquarters down to Florida, and I have a nice pre theatre dinner arranged. After that the Eroica.

No we did not kick the leather off the ball and if we did then the other sides kicked straight through the bladder

It’s an absolute fallacy that we kick all the time and don’t run it. None of the sides were more effective than us on attack in those knock out games

There was nothing in it

Sure Dave, if that makes you happy.

Nov 05, 2023, 01:13

it is quite simple.

The Boks set out to win the world cup - And guess what they did.

The Boks play to their strengths and that has to be admired.  

Nov 05, 2023, 01:16

The Boks achieved what they set out to do.

NZ got further than expected considering the absolute bullshit we have been delivering for 4 years.

Ireland - COMPLETE FAILURE............

France - ABSOLUTE DISASTER...........

Gosh that’s brilliant…are you a coach?

Nov 05, 2023, 04:03

Mozzzz is getting pasted on a daily basis for his absurd anti Bok comments. Rassie has caused him to lose his marbles. Bwahahahaha. 

Nov 05, 2023, 08:04

Moz it’s not about making me happy I’ve watched every game and we definitely don’t kick the ball any more than any other side

My eyes backed by stats confirm this

Nov 05, 2023, 13:15

Okay Dave I’ll give you an opportunity…produce the stats that show  we kick no more of the ball we receive ….on a percentage kicked basis.

Nov 05, 2023, 20:10

lies, damn lies and the statistics...just stop it!

Nov 09, 2023, 01:55

Or this…

Pity Willemse don't kick much better than Manie...I'm not against Pollard,  classy player, but not enough game time to walk back into the starting 15...same for Am...I also wish these 2 were ready,  but they simply can't be...bench at best.

Nov 09, 2023, 04:10

Pollard surprized walk back into the team after such a long time out and to immediately perform at the level he did is absolutely phenomenal...BTW, he did start off the bench at first.
