    Springboks saved by 3 Naas Botha drop goals. These two test matches was played in preperation for the 1981 tour to NZ. Ireland exposed SA's weakness at the breakdowns in these two test matches. Fergus Slattery, John O'Driscoll and Willie Duggan were simply brilliant in these two test matches. Louw, Stofberg and Claassen probably to similar in style; no 'fetcher' in the trio. The issue of the loose forward trio was something that become a bit of an issue in NZ and probably cost SA the series.

    Features two tries by Danie Gerber and a try by Rob Louw. Errol Tobias plays in his first test; check-out his hand-off in the lead-up to Rob Louw's try.

    This is also the match in which Danie Gerber scored his classic try. Probably the best try by and inside center that I've seen in a test match.
