I have definitely also noted variances in our attacking approach in the last three games, hope the team keeps persisting with this approach. If the Boks can find the right balance between the strong set pieces and attacking variation we have seen recently it will make them a much more rounded product going into 2023, very keen to see if the team persists with this approach at Twickenham on Saturday.

Thanks Jacko, definitely going to be the most competitive world cup to date in my opinion, I can see any one of 5 or 6 teams going the distance, it’s going to be great.
Cheers

Thanks Highlander, wouldn’t mind reading a different perspective on the Boks year… I’d like to engage in a conversation on your question regarding the structural issues, would you mind elaborating? Are you referring to how selection is approached, or more in the line of coaching structures, playing styles etc?

Agree 100%…

Hi JN, interesting views. I don’t buy the whole hype about the refs being against the Boks btw, too much is made of it in SA in my opinion. There are a lot of inconsistencies in interpretation which leads to match-defining decisions, which is concerning for the game overall, and I agree discipline could well be a deciding factor in terms of who comes out tops next year this time. I do, however, have a different view regarding the game plan and variation. I have seen differences over the past three games suggesting that the team is trying to build some variation in attacking in keeping the ball in hand more, if they can keep building on the trend it will make them a different proposition to 2019. Where I do agree is that the results are ultimately how success gets measured, and I don’t think the team or the fans are content with the 50/60 odd percent levels the team are functioning at the moment.
Cheers
