Boks vs All Blacks, Bulls vs WP = ultimate!
October 4, 2012 in Uncategorized
Some kiwis and aussies might disagree, however to most kiwis and republicans there are no ‘bigger’ contest outside of World Cups, than the ultimate foe….the real Green & Gold vs the mighty All Blacks! The Springboks are still the team who achieved more victories against the All Blacks than every other country! The Boks won 34 out of 80 tests with 3 draws, while before readmission in 1992 (thus amature days and before quotas) the Boks lead the kiwis with 20 wins out of 37 tests!
The Kiwis have Canterbury vs Auckland, the Aussies have Queensland vs NSW as thier ‘biggests’ derbies. Saffas will see ‘north vs south’ still as civil war, while the Sharks has become a big dog since the nineties!
Most bloggers don’t give WP with only 1 Springbok (on the bench) a chance at Loftus vs the Blue Bulls with numerous Boks in the group. Most also back the Pumas to win their first ever Championship game vs the Wallaby B-team. Rosaria, where the test will be played is imfamously known as the birthplace of Che Guevara, however, many passionate Puma fans believe it will be after the test also be known as the place of ‘first victory’. The Pumas did beat the Wallabies in Buenos Aires in 1997.
Come and see what others think of the Boks, Pumas and Bulls chances at:
