Dan Carter was the only New Zeelander who touched the World Cup today.

Lots of stuff to comment on - in the end the 'Bokke has the Cup - but one has to say NZ was the moral victors almost beating us with 14 players ....:dry: :dry:

Would have perhaps been a different story had we decided to go to the corner (twice) in the first half (a try would have really made it hard for NZ to come back) when they were down to 14 players - but then again those 3 points turned out to be the difference

And if Siya had passed - who knows ?

Still also have not seen a clip where it was determined by the TMO that a Springbok hand knocked the ball backwards (so no NZ knock-on which seemed clear) when they scored their try

So lots of Ifs and Buts - but that's that :cheer:

I am not sure if we should thank the players and coach or the ANC after listening to the Presidents speech 🤔

Cyril the Squirrel was too quick to take the trophy from Siya and raise it aloft like be had bust a gut for his country like the players did/do...before taking credit, why don't the ANC and their sycophants take ownership for their multitude of failings?
Some-one said on the radio this morning that it's pointless doing a mid term budget when the persons put into positions merely ignore and spend and steal as they like...and I'd venture that a fair amount of that pilfered is "donated" to the ANC...and what is not "donated" is used to buy bling from the very WMC they take every opportunity to blame for any of their current failings...

No matter how good a policy, plan, system, process or control, it is only as good as the human element therein...and with the ANC infected every nook and cranny of life in SA, we can see the outcomes...arrogantly ignorant is the best collective description...Dunning-Kruger effect on steroids...wishing a plague upon them would be too kind a punishment for their ruin of this beautiful country...

.....not nice to see our captain being flanked by the 2 ANC clad goons on arrival at the airport....rugby and other sports have the ability to unite the country but the ANC policy is to totally destroy it.....:angry: .

About 1400 days away from the World Cup 2027.
Bokke is 3-1.
If you start tomorrow with the odd doubles and trebles with the ponies, using small change you can turn that to good profit.
With Rassie in charge, we can pull off a hat-trick……………..

When I hear or see or read Dan Carter, all I think about is Bismarck's tackle on him and a NZ provincial rugby captain chirping the referee about not being allowed to tackle Carter...protected species that distracted from his greatness...and with NZ and Canterbury forwards cheating (clearing out way past the ruck seemed their favourite means) to give him space to operate in, he obviously looked good...no space can make the great look ordinary and NZ and World Rugby didn't want that...
