South Africa came from behind to beat Ireland 16-12 in a clash of two injury-hit sides at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday. More
Manager: Declan Kidney
Manager: Heyneke Meyer
It maybe over simplifying things but I feel that Ireland are still lacking that killer instinct to finish off games and seem to have trouble whenever they are leading games. Come to the second half they are like rabbits in headlights with no clue how to win. Shame, as they have talent but not that inner strength.
WELL DONE BOYS
Boring schoolboy level stuff. How the helll did Ireland and the ref manage to loose this one?
Go bokke go!!!!!
if the ref was generous to ireland in the 1st half......my god he has made it up to SA in the 2nd half. given them everything.
its a disaster dixon mate......SA there for the taking but we just not good enough.
Raymond and you have got a dodgy ref, absolutely ridiculous decisions, and just loves his whistle!! Can't see the boks win this with these ref's with a possible IQ of 10 and that's probably being generous. See Ireland rugby is taking a lesson from the England side and bringing in overseas players, so maybe they will now improve. Go Bokke
SA not interested, this must be the worst SA team to go on tour. Still ireland struggling to beat them. we should have put a few tries on the board by now. the ref is very generous to us. please somebody take earls off the pitch before he costs us this match. im blue in the face saying he isnt up to this level of rugby, and every day im proved right. on the evidence of the argies performance today ireland need to improve big time if they hope to beat argentina. we can disregard this game as the springboks simply dont want to be here.
Cant see how ireland can win this one, unless we get a dodgy ref. The camp is in disarray after a poor 6 nations where we only beay lowly italy and scotland. then followed that with a record 60-0 loss to new zealand. Kidney is a great man manager but hasnt a clue about tactics and coaching. Earls and Darcy are the weakest defensive midfield you will find in international rugby. the boks will have a field day in midfield. also the selection of Zebo at full back is mindboggling. i dont think he has even played a game at fullback for munster. Great to see mike mccarthy in the team. hope it goes well for him.
