For all his talent JdeV is a serial under- achiever-when the big moment comes he will generally blow it. It has rubbed off on the SDtormers and may rub off on SA

Boks haven't really turned the knife for a while and Argentina will never lie down so Boks need a ruthlessness and consistency they haven't shown. If Morne doesn't take the points on offer it will only heap more pressure on them. Hope for his sake that he shows an improvement or it will cost the Boks during the Championship. Should be fascinating game though. Pumas will undoubtedly take the lessons and improve as a result. Will the Boks?

You know, it gets me down how every time an SH team doesn't do so well against England (or any NH team for that matter) it is because they are playing "Flatfooted" or "not on Form" or any number of other excuses. The fact is that the Boks were not playing any better or worse in the last test than they were in the first two, England got the measure of their dull game plan and attacked it sucessfully. Truth is England were not playing as well as they could have and should have taken that game.

Habana on right wing is a good move. He will be very valuable there as he has compensated for his lack of try scoring by looking for work all over the park. JDV will be feeling way more confident with Frans Steyn next to him! Watch this centre pairing. We are gonna have to hammer their forwards upfront and Keegan Daniels will be key to looking after the break down points! He will be more of an asset than Spies has been in 4 years. I just hope that we are are ruthless tomorrow! Go Bokke!

typical SA psychology. Gleen as much positivity as you can out of nothing and then try to keep the ball rolling. Level playing field with Argentina having nothing to loose but everything to gain. Come on you Pumas!

cool maybe they'll play for 80 mins instead of switching off halfway through
