Gutted. Boks out of the 2011 RWC.

9 Oct

Well, now that I’ve had enough time to dry my eyes and drop my handbag I am able to share my random 2 cents worth. Still gutted, but moving along swiftly. Springboks are out of the Rugby World Cup 2011 as defending champions losing to Australia (11-9) in the quarter finals. Yoh, still sucks to say that out loud. Anyway, here’s my top 10 topics post match:

Stronger side: We honestly played top class rugby. We were definitely the stronger side on the day which even the stats have backed; however, we let every opportunity go to get over the try line. And let’s be honest with ourselves we had a lot of opportunities to hit up a try. One at least. We never converted a lot of our penalties. Yes – fair enough they were not easy kicks putting Morne Steyn under serious pressure but at the end of the day we never put these points on the board. Loved his drop goal. Thought we had it right there. Sigh. I have never danced around my living room like such a muppet before as what I did when that kick went over.

The Ref: Yes, the referee Bryce Lawrence was an absolute tool. He actually needs a p@es klap. Come over here boet and let me show you what that is. Its difficult playing a game against the referee too and he let penalties in our favour go and was just plain biased. We always love to blame the ref when it doesn’t go in our favour and Saffa’s are having a serious rant about this. Talk of whether the IRB will be doing anything about it all over the interweb!? We’ll wait and see. However, he was the match referee and we need to respect his decisions (hmmmm)!? Just trying to be diplomatic here.


Winning: At the end of the day a win is a win. And Australia (gggrrrrr) won. And we need to have good sportsmanship and congratulate them. Don’t even get me started on Australia. I’ll leave it here. Well done to the Wallabies (she mumbles in a soft tone of voice).

Our coach: P Divvy will be stepping down as Bok coach. Well it’s about friggin’ time. Talk about just walking away. Look, we’re not going to beg him to stay. So just keep walking pal. Talk of Allister Coetzee stepping into this role. We’ll have to wait and see.

COM: I think Quade Cooper was the biggest muppet on the field. Does he even know how to spell rugby!? Not liking this one at all.

MOM: I loved the way that Schalk Burger was called “colossal” at even given chance by the commentators. Yes, he is a unit. He played a brilliant game. Lambie also put in every effort. Thought Jean De Villiers had an outstanding match too. So a few on our side of course worth mentioning. 

Injuries: I hope that Bryan Habana’s head is alright. Yusses, he took some serious knocks to it and looked a little out of it at one point. He just throws himself in 100% of the time at every chance. Well played. Such a dedicated player.

The real MOM: Pocock given man of the match for playing illegal rugby!? Are these people serious!? Again. Will leave it at that.

Hottie of the match: Pat Lambie. Hope you’re ready for the chicks when you get home my boy. And I don’t see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind. Just to back that up since the match, I have had a massive amount of searches coming through to my blog for “Pat Lambie naked”. Now now ladies. Easy.

Proudly South African: Guys, let’s not slate our team. We should be so proud of them and stay Proudly South African. They played their hearts out and played well. Well done Boks – you good things you.

Right – so semi finals up next (South African times).

15th Oct: Wales vs. France. 10 am.

16th Oct: Australia vs. New Zealand. 10 am.

All I can say is that the All Blacks better bliksem the Wallabies in that game. Look forward to a Wales vs. All Blacks final.

And of course I’ll be supporting the All Blacks. Keeping it South.

    It is absolutely sad that we lost that game, yes we missed a few opportunities, but if it wasn’t necessary to play against that flippen ref as well, then I think we would have made it through to the semi’s.

    I still believe that we were the better team…

    Just such a pity that they can’t get rid of referees like that.
