    When you're playing a decent team and only manage 32% posession in the first half it's gonna be an uphill battle to win the game.

    Once we got in front I thought we'd run over them with all their injuries but Ireland showed some serious grit to get it done. Even though I think there was a knock on in the lead up to their match winning try.

    The commentators thought so too iirc

    Ireland showed a lot of heart to come back and snatch it. Both teams must have been dead on their feet by the end

    I would like to see what a full-strength Bokke team looks like on paper, no overseas restrictions and no race quotas. After that, would be interesting to see what the line-up would be with the addition of non-eligible South African players who've been lost to other test nations. As a matter of fact, I'd reckon Fiji would look pretty formidable too.

    Just as a hypothetical exercise of course.
