Although some armchair critics will never be satisfied, we believe Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer and his charges have redeemed themselves with the successful completion of their European tour.
To prevail against England in such atrocious conditions, under the whip from a visually challenged referee, (I think that Mr Owens and his co refs should be reassessed and sanctioned or at least sent to scrumming school to learn how scrums are supposed to work) showed depth of character. If the awarding of Willem Alberts’s try was bizarre it scarcely made up for the bad calls by Welsh whistleblower Nigel Owens.
By winning three out of three on this trip, the Boks brought their tally for the year to seven victories, three losses and two draws. Considering that two of the losses were against the rampant World Champion All Blacks, Meyer can be reasonably pleased with his first season.
