  • Bokke score. Leyds. 8 gone.

    Think I've heard the commentator call Cronje "Cron-jer", and Skosan "Soskan" so far.



  • That was a good try from the French no. 10. Try converted and it's France 7, South Africa 8 after 28 minutes.



  • France has gradually become better during this game. Springboks may be in for a difficult remaining 50 minutes.



  • Another low-scoring game. Half time: France 7 - 8 South Africa



  • is Kiwi booing worse than anyone elses, or is it how we boo?

    Interesting there werent multiple replays of that



  • Pollard's placekicking not up to it. Tactical kicking has been good though.



  • Haha

  • reckon that shoulda been a PT as well, Marks would probably have scored



  • A penalty try was awarded in a similar circumstances last week. The Frog pulled the guys jersey thus should be "removed" a la Sonny Bill Williams in which case the try would have been scored.



  • ball gone back and bounced forward, try IMO

    also come off the Frenchman.



  • did Marks take a head knock, looks a bit wobbly



  • That relatively easy missed penalty by France probably seals it for Sth Africa France 10 - 18 Sth Africa with about seven minutes to go.



  • looked like a forward pass in that movement just prior to FRances try



  • Maybe not, France in for a converted try moment after to trail by just one point



  • game over, 17-18 to SA (or Africa South - AFS)



  • @higgins said in France v South Africa:

    A penalty try was awarded in a similar circumstances last week. The Frog pulled the guys jersey thus should be "removed" a la Sonny Bill Williams in which case the try would have been scored.

    Seemed a clear PT to me



  • From what I saw Bokke deserved the W



  • In the end, Serin's ill-discipline has cost them the game.
