I'm sure the RWC will be a success and the visiting teams enjoy their stay!
The Boks, France and the Wannabes are the direct threats to the ABs massive task of securing the RWC. England are a giant force that like to play hard yakka, straight up the middle forward play. And they're pretty good at this style which suits them, nothing too flashy either.
The Boks have a similar game plan, have a huge forward pack and an excellant goal kicker. However some of their players maybe past their use-by-date. The Boks looked tired and slow when the Wannabes managed a lucky win.
Our friends the Wannabes have certainly stepped up and since Deans has been in charge have done well with some lucky results. A very young and in-experienced team at this level with the forward pack unable to dominate or keep possession for long periods. The Wannabes backs look lethargic and slow!
The ABs are favs abd deservedly so-we're playing on home soil but have injuries, selections and appear alittle unsettled.
Mr. Henry by now must realise from here on picking a consistent playing 22, playing combinations and bringing back the ABs forward power machinary will be welcomed!
The ABs have the forward and backs to emulate their previous 1987 winners and do us proud! Go the ABs!
