What’s the point right?
Well, it could be record points scored against the Springboks tomorrow.
The Bokke are looking their k@kste in years.
And when they face the All Blacks in Christchurch, they will be coming up against a side that look like they are going to slaughter Allister Coetzee’s Boks.
No one is giving the South Africans a sniff.
The last time the two sides met in last year’s World Cup semifinal, there was just a two-point difference.
But on the evidence of last weekend’s performances by the two “contenders”, this will be a walkover for the New Zealanders.
The gulf in class is there for all to see. And this weekend we’ll see just how wide it is.
The way the All Blacks stormed back to beat Argentina and the way the Boks threw away a lead to lose, you can tell what the momentum is for both – the Kiwis are just getting better, while Toetie’s team gaan agter uit.
It says a lot about this game that mense are now expecting a record pak for the Bokke.
And it’s making me kwaad. But we all have to accept that this Bok team is on the ropes.
By the time they were behind against Australia, they had run out of ideas to get back into the game.
They kicked all their ball away, hoping that the Wallabies would make a mistake so they could feed off the scraps.
Now they look like a team who are happy with crumbs fallen from a table.
Hierdie All Blacks soek net steak. And this weekend they are going to chow Springbok.
In case you’re wondering what the Boks’ biggest pak against their great rivals is, it’s a 55-17 massacre.
That 36-points difference is the worst they have done when they faced the men in black.
And this weekend, the signs are all there for this team to get murdered out on the field.
If you look at SA’s 17 points against the Aussies and NZ’s 57 against the Pumas, that’s 40.
Nothing the Bokke have done in their five games this year indicates that they can save themselves from this burial.
And make no mistake, this is going to be ugly. On so many levels.
So mense, let’s all wear black tomorrow because the Bokke are going to get buried.
