FT South Africa 31-30 Wales – Springboks deny Wales first ever win in South

 

  • “I’ve never seen a game swing in so many ways. Even when they scored that try to get within one we still had to just keep our discipline and see it out.

    “But of all the ways to lose a game, if Liam hadn’t tackled him in the corner it would have been a kick from there.

    “Taking all parochialism and bias out of it, a penalty there for no arms is a penalty try. That’s the greatest Welsh performance I’ve ever seen but we are cursed.”

    Sings: “If you tolerate this, your children will be next…”

    Gutting for Wales, but a head-high, no arms tackle is not just illegal but also dangerous. In years gone by Liam Williams would have probably got away with his hit on Cornal Henricks by the corner flag, but with the TMO and referral system it was pretty clear what happened.

    Former South Africa and Leicester Tigers fly-half Derick Hougaard on BBC Radio Wales: “At one stage you thought Wales couldn’t lose this game. SA came back but what a call it was by the TMO to give it. I thought it was a penalty at best. The try gave Steyn the kick under the posts.

    “To put up this effort was unbelievable and it almost feels like they were robbed. There are a lot of relieved Springboks rather than ecstatic springboks at this moment.”

    What a match, but the cold hard truth is that Wales have once again fallen short against South Africa.

    Heroic? Brave? Beaten.

    Wales’ record against South Africa now reads won one, drawn one, lost 27.

    Mike Phillips makes a 10m break, still Wales hammer away, they’re over the 10m line, 17th phase…

    A series of digs form Wales in midfield, can they get in drop-goal range?

    They’re going nowhere though…

    Dan Biggar tries his luck with a drop-goal but it’s a long way out and it falls short. One final line-out…

    The conversion is under the sticks, this is going to be the game isn’t it?

    Morne Steyn converts and Wales have 90 seconds to save themselves.

    This is unbearable, I keep forgetting to breath.

    What a tackle from Liam Williams!!!!!!!!!!!! But is it illegal?????????

    Oh dear lord. Cornal Hendricks is flying into the corner and Williams takes him out with no arms, that looks illegal to me.

    Referee Steve Walsh says “clearly an illegal tackle”. Now he wants to know if it would have been a try. I think it would have been…

    This has been a real rock opera of a match and now we’re deep into the last act.

    Another scrum, Wales win it just but Taulpue Faletau is swallowed up by a giant green wave and it’s a penalty to South Africa which Morne Steyn sends deep into the Wales 22.

    “The Welsh have got old heads too and they just need to be patient and keep their discipline because they can’t give away penalties and give South Africa the chance to get that driving maul going.”

    Former South Africa and Leicester Tigers fly-half Derick Hougaard on BBC Radio Wales: “This is going to be a great finish to a great Test match. There are a lot of old heads in that South African team and they will know how to handle the pressure and the game of this final 10 minutes.

    “Can they pull off the impossible? Wales don’t deserve to lose.”

  • TRY (Le Roux)

  • Andrew Lavoipierre: Wales deserve to be ahead. They’re more hungry, simple.

    Cornal Hendricks makes a slashing break from his own 22, the Boks earn an advantage and Jan Serfontein chips ahead, but Wales just scramble the ball into touch.

    Martyn Williams expects his old team to close it out, and who are we to disagree?

    An attack comes to a halt in the Bok 22, but it’s another scrum…

    “I hope it’s not the commentator’s curse but I really can’t see South Africa coming back from this. They’re all over the place.

    “Wales have been totally dominant, the scrum is on top and they’re controlling every facet. It’s the best Welsh performance I’ve ever seen, particularly after last week.”

    Former South Africa and Leicester Tigers fly-half Derick Hougaard on BBC Radio Wales: “You can feel the people in the stands getting a little bit nervous. That’s two great scrums in a row from Wales.

    “Schalk Brits is on the field now. South Africa want to play a bit of rugby.”
