Prediction for SA-AB game 17/8

First of all, I'd like to congratulate the All Blacks on an awesome display of
rugby in the second half at Newlands. Their first try was magnificent.

But, you can't blame the boks for the loss. Not only were the All Blacks
superb but to lose your captain and the best prop in the world too.....that's
harsh.

Even though the springboks are missing two key players for the upcoming test,
I'd like (VERY optimistically) to predict a 23-19 victory for the Boks. With
Gary Teichmann, Ruben Kruger, and possibly Wayne Fyvie in the loose, the bokke
can provide the goods. And with Japie Mulder in such great form on attack and
Hennie Le Roux so good defensively, I don't think it would be wise to discount
SA.

Once again, congrats to the AB's on a fine win. Hopefully it won't happen
again.

Regards
Damon Freeman
