Howie Kahn, Morgan Newman and Anton ‘Worms’ van Zyl share their thoughts on the Springboks’ series-clinching performance while Worms can’t help but state the obvious fall from grace England suffered.

Despite being highly impressed with the team’s performance, Newman questions whether there is a solid enough scrumhalf backup to Faf de Klerk.

Former Springbok flyhalf Butch James joins the conversation from 11:45 to share his thoughts on the Springboks and makes a case for his ideal backup to Handre Pollard before making special mention of Beast Mtawarira, who played his 100th International match in the green and gold.

Newman couldn’t help but ask Butch about the new tackle laws before Howie and Worms head back to England and the way they carried themselves during the post-match interviews.

The match between New Zealand and France was once again in the headlines for all the wrong reasons and there seems to be a bit of disagreement between the trio about Benjamin Fall’s red card at 25:50.

The team looks at the series deciding match between Australia and Ireland before wrapping the show up by looking at the remarkable achievement of France’s Under-20 side after claiming the U20 World Championship.
