All Blacks vs South Africa - Half Time Talk

Come on Cullen. We need magic! Mehrts, Jeff, please, get it together. Order. Find touch. No more chargedowns, please. Forwards, effort IS REQUIRED! WORK. WORK. WORK. And hold on to the ball. Kees, fantastic work, keep it up. The rest of you. Be like him…

A scrappy start to the All Blacks vs Boks test in Cardiff has the Boks up 16 to 12 at the break. The Springboks aren’t finding touch a lot either and the game appears to be still warming up. At least this time the ref appears to be on the same planet.

On a more positive note the All Blacks appeared to perform better in the second twenty minutes. The second half should be interesting....finges crossed...
