Fabulous footage Lukas. I have not seen this since 1980. All of New Zealand was talking about these matches. The Boks looked very impressive and therefore we needed to get them to NZ to measure ourselves. What a terrible shame Louw and Mordt were poached to play thugby league.

Back in the 1980s nobody knew about state of origin in NZ, the Boks were important and australia was regarded as an enemy nation which decent kiwis regarded a vermin. South Africa was viewed as a friendly nation we shared a common bond of rugby with.

A generation of propaganda from Rupert Murdoch has reduced and undermined our rugby culture.

Bring back the long tours.

Can anyone tell me who was the Springbok no 18 who missed the tackle on Gray Gravell at the end. Also who did he replace?

The Bruce Hay 'clap-the-ball-down-intercept-attempt' after the brilliant break by Pienaar jsut before the Stofberg try should have been a penalty try. At least if you ask Justin Marshall he'll be all in favour of awarding a penalty try for those sort of negative play.
