Bingo - play the ref!
Of course.....even as a ref you know its being done to you, but you forgive it more when they are at least trying and of course, the psychology works. The forty year old grizzled prop who smiled at me, called me Sir etc I'm sure got away with far more as I went round to check the other side of the scrum to check the scowling 18 year old ....and suddenly my veteran friend had silently managed to pull his opponents tongue through his nose

Re: RWC 2011 thread

Well I was very happy with my teams game on Saturday. The Boks finally are starting to show some form and cohesion. On the other hand, even though the Fijians can be extremely dangerous, I think they are not as strong as they used to be (pre-WC build was extremely difficult for them, political turmoil, etc.).

I was really impressed with our defense though. I think anyone who can walk away from a game with the Islanders and not concede a try has done ok. Another major bonus was that we didn't add to our injury toll.

Although Samoa will be very tough in that regard (I see the Welsh upped their injury count after the game...). I am not looking forward to that human-rhino Tuilagi, he is a wrecking ball of note.

Re: RWC 2011 thread

Be happy you'll probably be missing the real Irish Islanders after putting paid to the Wallabies for the 2nd round.
Looks like we'll be up against a resurgent Welsh team.

Personally, I don't think it's ever a good idea to throw a game. You never know whats around the corner...

Plus, the Irish have upped their game nicely, so definitely not the easiest side to play. On the other hand, the Aussies can be erratic. If you catch them on a good day (and the backline lights up), you could be in for a helluva tough game. But the Boks defense has improved substantially and our forward pack is looking really good. So they might just use that and tighten the screws on that backline.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Still 2 games to play, anything can happen!

Not very likely given this . We hate to disappoint you folks and don't wanna throw a single match just for a sake of our ego and on the top of that we are Springboks after all you know At the same time we will stay modest and let the ball roll. Nonetheless the message in general should be there that if you wanna get the trophy we will make you work hard for it, seriously
