SA vs NZ prediction – We need that Men in Black gadget

 

After last week’s thrashing the Springboks is definitely not the favourites in tomorrow’s Tri-Nations test against The Men in Black. Maybe we need that “forget-it-happened” gadget from Will Smith and  Tommy Lee Jones in The Men in Black movies to recover and wipe-out the embarrassment of last week.

At least we do not have to watch Bakkies Botha performing some of his stupid and Neanderthalic outbursts.  But that is then and now we are facing the world’s best in their back yard, wounded  and fighting for survival in the Tri-Nations.

Can we do it? Yes of cause. Will we do it…not likely according to Rugby 365.

Their prediction is as follows:  

“It’s hard to see the Springboks coming back well enough to win the match. It is silly to think that the All Blacks will suffer from overconfidence for that is not in the nature of the All Blacks. But Springboks with their backs to the wall are usually at their best. So we predict a New Zealand victory by about five points.

My call is if we are 15 against 15 for the whole match it is going to be close. But without Fourie (‘s a jolly good fellow) Du Preez and with no real enforcer (yster) on the bench, I think Rugby365 is spot on with SA to lose by five.

What is your prediction?
