Regroup and bounce back
3 February, 2016, 12:00 am
The Fijians were unable to cope with the pace and combination of their experienced rivals who won easily by a big margin.
But what a shock it was as the talented Springboks beat the Fijians at their own game.
This surprising result may be accounted for partly by the extraordinary speed and energy shown by the Boks. One could not blame our boys. In hindsight they regretted their decision to play a fluid styled game but such regrets were certainly never expressed in public.
It was ironic that our boys themselves did not exactly indulge in a carefree run-it-at-all-cost type of game on this occasion.
Sydney Sevens is next. It is important for our boys to regroup and bounce back in style.
