It's not often you watch one of these classic encounters and can't mention how brilliant the All Black backline was. Their handling was poor with numerous errors, this isn't where the match was won.
Again, it's not often that the Bok forwards are out muscled be it at the ruck or lineout, and the All Black forwards were supreme in this regard.
Wave after wave the AB's wore down the already tired Bok legs, hastened by the sin binning of Bakkies Botha in the early stages of the game.
From there on it was catch up rugby for the Boks who in all honesty appeared pretty shell shocked, unable to implement the kick chase game of last year or the tactical supremacy that they usually hold in the lineout.
There will be a lot of disappointment in South Africa after this result, not just the loss itself but the manner of the loss, all of the Bok star players were out performed by a team that appeared to have more hunger and most importantly accuracy.
Thankfully I have only a week to wait to see if the Boks can turn this around, if they don't, the Tri Nations trophy will be moving back to Australasia.
