My score was SA 67 - 15 Portugal. Got close. RG Snyman was a beast. The Bok attack stuttered with Libbok, (as usual can't kick)but when Sacha came on, it became very fluent and what a slippery candidate. He is the future flyhalf for the Boks. What a player. Mapimpi back to his old self, hattrick well done.
I have repeatedly checked and there was no head on head. That red shouldn't even have been a yellow. That was very harsh. Portugal didn't stand a chance but they really tried the whole 80 minutes. They impressed me. They will see top 10 by the next WC.
Overall good game for the ref. Allowed it to flow but a few mistakes for Hollie. Guess blowing a Bok game was very stressful for her, so giving her a break.

SFM was born to play 10 for the Boks.

@finn thinks he’s overrated though.

Good first half. Portugal just go missing on defence.

That red card is the biggest load of bollocks ever in the history of refereeing. What a joke.

The TMO is a doos.

Well there was zero head on head contact. So I suggest Holly wear her glasses in the second half.
