South Africa Beat Australia In The 1st Week Of Tri-Nations Rugby
By Derek Robson

On Saturday 16th June 2007, the Springboks kicked off their Tri Nations campaign, against a full strength Wallaby side in Newlands, Cape Town. As the first real test of the Springboks strength, against a highly rated world class side, with a long history of cohesion in the side and among the management team, this was a much awaited clash. Speculation was rife as to which was the better side and who indeed would be called upon to do team duty on the day. I was pleasantly surprised by the selections as the team looked closer to what I would consider to be the best, with 1 or 2 minor exceptions. I, personally, was happy to see the combination of the Shark's scrumhalf and flyhalf.
Personally, I don't think Ashwin Willemse is a first choice winger and I'm pleased that they left Bob Skinstad out. Sorry, but I feel that once you have had the chance of playing for the Springboks and then you leave the country for whatever reason and once you have played elsewhere for a couple of seasons, then you forfeit all future opportunities of ever playing for your country again. Especially when you captained the national team, ran a lousy campaign, were off form for the season, but continually selected and then get back in, after several years away - no ways. I don't agree with that. I don't care how talented the player is. I feel he has had his chances and there is someone else just as deserving, just as good and more patriotic. I was, of course, very pleased to see a side comprising of mostly Sharks players. I would have liked to see the young Frans Steyn start, but had to be satisfied with the fact that he was at least on the bench.
Anyway the match against the Aussies was a hard battle. Many of the younger Sprinboks, lacking experience in high level matches, should have found themselves a little out of their depth, but again due to their confidence levels after a very successful Super 14, stood up to the task admirably.
Unfortunately, one major area of concern for world rugby, is the recently highlighted weakness of the refs in the Super 14. It seems there are very few top referees, capable of blowing a top level game with any semblance of ability. A lot of horrific refereeing decisions were exposed recently and I'm sorry to say that there are very few match officials that are any good. They either make questionable decisions, lack control of the game, or are far too quick to blow the whistle, rather than letting the game flow. This match was one of these.
The referee was a young, inexperienced guy from England and this showed in the way he handled the game. He failed to stamp any kind of authority on the game and just lacked control. He also made silly decisions and was totally influenced by the cunning Aussies. When a bit of fighting broke out in the 3rd quarter, he did not even blow his whistle. He stood and watched!
The Aussies are past masters at creating pre- match controversy and using diversionary tactics and psychology to their advantage. They complained in the press that both BJ Botha and Bakkie Botha used illegal scrummaging tactics and appealed to the match officials to watch this. Well, the poor little ref made a point of watching these 2 players like a hawk and although they were not guilty as alleged by the Aussies, what he failed to notice was that the Aussies deliberately collapsed every scrum. So eager was this ref, to show that he was paying attention to their concerns, that he automatically penalised South Africa every time. The Aussies loved this and then proceeded to collapse everything from set scrum to rucks and mauls.
They took advantage of his inexperience and played a game of clever professional fouls. At one stage, after several failed attempts at crossing the SA scoreline, George Gregan cleverly swung the ball out left in to an unsuspecting Pierre Spies and then immediately claimed obstruction, from the ref. He may have hoped for a penalty try to be awarded, but must have been happy with the outcome as a penaltywas awarded and scored and a poor Spies was yellow carded and sent off for 10 minutes.
This was a hard, physical match from the onset, but after only 10 minutes, the South African captain, . John Smit injured his knee and had to leave the field. Although Victor Matfield, the Bulls skipper, took over the captaincy, the loss was obvious and the 'Boks seemed to lose some direction.
Each side scored only 1 try each, but it was due to the outstanding defence of both teams that the try tally wasn't higher. The Springboks had the lion's share of possession and territory, but the Aussie defence was rock solid. They defended like demons.
At halftime, Aussie was in the lead, although the Springboks were the first to put points on the board. Certain players really stood out and amongst those who had an outstanding game was the hard working flanker, Schalk Burger, who was later awarded man of the match.
Throughout the first 30 minutes of the second half both sides attacked and defended strongly, but it seemed the score of 19-16 to the Wallabies would remain the final score. But then a young, talented, unassuming 20 year old hero came on to the field as substitute for Ashwin Willemse and the game changed. During a desperate effort by the Springboks to cross the line, with their constant attacking efforts, continually thwarted by the Wallabies, Ruan Pienaar passed the ball back to Frans Steyn, who as cool as a cucumber kicked a drop goal. The scores were now level at 19-19 and only about 4 minutes remained.
The Springboks, inspired by their good fortune and smelling victory, launched another desperate and frenetic attack and again and again, were stopped by the Aussie defence. With only a minute or two to go, the ball again found itself in the hands of the young Steyn, who unbelievably attempted a long drop kick of all of 50 metres and succeeded with power to spare. This young man has a boot on him and can kick further than many of the top world class players. This put South Africa ahead 22-19 and all the 'Boks had to do was keep possession for a few seconds. On the sound of the hooter, the wily Butch James nonchalantly kicked the ball out of play and victory was sealed.
The young Steyn missed the last kick for the Sharks to win the Super 14 finals and allowed the Bulls to take victory, but he more than made up for that mistake in this match. So, South Africa now lead the standings in the first week of the Tri nations and face New Zealand in the next fixture in Durban.
