    94 King Country; 5th Springbok try by James Small. Small handles the ball three times in this movement and score in the opposite wings corner. The Springbok backline was unable to score from set piece in the entire match. This try by the backline resulted from a poor touch finder by the King Country side under pressure. Small fielded the ball, passed it to Theo van Rensburg and doubled around to receive it back. He then ran straight and fast before sending a long skip pass to Kabous van der Westhuizen on the opposite wing. When Kabous straightened-up FA Meiring doubles around took the pass from Kabous gave one or two steps to the outside before stepping inwards and slowing down to draw the defence. Meiring then passed to Small who came doubling around heading for the left wing corner. He had some work to do but was up to the task and scored right on the touchline. Would have resulted in a video ref check today.

    This clip shows the problems the Springbok backline had on this tour as well as the problem the team had with discipline. Both aspects that would cost them the series. Clip starts with the backline trying to run from set piece but lying to flat and running too lateral. King Countries left wing the 98 kg Jason Wells intercepted but he got chased down by FA Meiring. he throw the ball backwards but the chasing Jannie Claassens got it and turned before getting tackled. Claassens then got penalised for holding onto the ball on ground (at least that's what I think the penalty was about). One of the KC forwards tapped and stated to run with the ball right into Wiese who did not fall back. The ref immediately awarded a penalty try. A bit of a harsh decision but the result of the South Africans (Wiese in particular) having been warned 4 times already for not falling back after penalties. This incensed the Springboks and they attacked with vigour right from the kick off and scored soon afterwards when they scrummed strongly allowing Straeuli to pick up and drive over.

    Kabous van der Westhuizen scored probably the try of the match. This was the Springboks 3rd try in the first match of the 1994 tour against King Country. King Country was on the attack and when the ball spilled loose on the touch line Jannie Claassens got the ball away to Lance Sherral with a quick long pass out of a tight situation. Joost was the next receiver. He draw his man before sending it to Tiaan Strauss who started running a 45 degree angling towards the touchline before scissoring with James Small. Small straightened up and then sending the ball to Theo van Rensburg on the wing. Van Rensburg hoisted a perfect cross kick that came down almost in line with one of the goal post but 2-3 meters short of the goal line. Kabous on full tilt caught the ball in mid air and went over for a try in almost the same movement. Great try.

Francois Pienaar, Kobus Wiese, Balie Swart, Joost vd Westhuizen and Tiaan Strauss featured strongly in the lead-up to this try. Theo van Rensburg and Kabous vd Westhuizen can also be seen handling the ball.

    This clip shows the first Springbok try in the first match of the 1994 tour to New Zealand. Shows the Springbok forwards running aggressively onto the ball with supporting runners in close support; maintaining good running lines. First Balie Swart takes it up then Francois Pienaar before Kobus Wiese gets into the action. Wiese ofloads to Joost van der Westhuizen and when he goes down Krynauw Otto picks-up and scores. Last part of this clip shows Lance Sherral landing an outstanding penalty kick. He punched the ball into the wind judging the strength of the breeze to perfection to allow the wind to curve it through the uprights.

    Sam Doyle scoring Wellington's 2nd try for wellington to take a 16-5 lead. Notice the poor midfield play by SA. They were trying the Ozie loop around midfield play and kept on messing it up mostly because they were doing it without frontfoot ball. Notice also how Francois Pienaar came in from the side (not through the gate) right on his own goal line. In the next play (after the kick-off from the try) he did it again and got penalized by Paddy O'Brein.

    Third tour match SA vs Wellington. This clip shows the first two tries one by SA and one by Wellington. Springbok set moves is much based on what they learned from the Aussies in 1993. Drive it up from the line-out and then do a loop around with the flyhalf with the fullback jumping in the line. They struggle however to create fast ball as their ground skills in securing and recycling the ball is not of the same quality as that of the AB and Aussies. They also use the Craven loose forward linking style; that is loose fowards receiving a inside pass from the centers or on the blindise using a loose foward breaking from the scrum who flip it back inside to a player straightening it up who then -just before hitting contact- send it back to No9 who takes it wide again to No15 jumping into the line. Interesting tactics and certainly a lot less kicking than was the case in the years 2007-2012.

    Joost vand der Westhuizen came on for Johan le Roux and FA Meiring for Pieter Muller. Notice the two terrible passes by Joost with his left hand at the start of this clip. There are two penalties (one by Counties and one by Joubert) as well as a try by Straeuli in this clip. SA won the match in the end 37-26. It was a rusty second match; handling in the backs, decision making with ball in hand, discipline at the tackle ball and line-outs being the major problems at this stage.

    Boks behind 14-0 after 10 minutes starting to get some rhythm in only their second tour match. They force a penalty which Joubert convert into 3 points. Typical Andre Joubert style of just placing the ball 5 steps back run-up and kick. No mannerisms just run-up and kick.
