Back from the graveyard

South Africa finished their Tri-Nations on a high, following up last weekend's victory over champions New Zealand with a win off 24-16 over Australia at Ellis Park Saturday, every nice can put on the rugby shirt now.

It took a try by Breyton Paulse, to seal the game with eight minutes to go,

They also kept up the South African bogey for the Wallabies, who last won in South Africa in 2000. the first half was not that great ,kicking form both sides was bollocks.Going into the second half after some hard core chats in the changing room the game picked up with Andre Pretorius with a try in the first minute of the second half but the sneaky aussies came straight back with a try.

Bok fly-half Andre Pretorius put a poor first half behind him to put his side into the lead in the first minute of the second half, but it was soon snuffed out as the Australians scored their first try of the match.

Fourie du Preez managed to sneak his way through four defenders to score a try ,the aussies comming back with two penalties from South African mistakes but we sorted that out with Paulse’s try.

We won ,about time too

Fly half Andre Pretorius kicked a late penalty to help South Africa to a 21-20 victory over New Zealand
The game was a physical encounter with both teams scoring two tries each and than god Pretorius stepped up to defeat the All Blacks. They were not as intense as last weekend maybe they were scared in Rustenburg I would be. South African rugby team used the line outs to control the game better, going back to basics to control terriotory.the forwards pushed forward with some nice rolling mauls.
Habana managed to score through a intercept to score our first try and Wannenberg our second try.

I can now go back to my local least we have one game to chirp about plus it was a All Black scalp nogal.
