All Blacks did Boks a favour

Tactical switch pays dividends

The Springboks only realised their attacking potential at Newlands when they played to their traditional strengths, writes JON CARDINELLI.

Advantage Springboks

The result in Sydney was more important than the one in Pretoria in the context of the Springboks’ Rugby Championship title prospects, writes JON CARDINELLI.

Pollard selection a shrewd call

Heyneke Meyer’s decision to start Handré Pollard against Argentina will pay off in the short and long term, writes JON CARDINELLI.

Jake gambles on Reinach

A new halfback combination in Charl McLeod and Pat Lambie would have lent the Sharks some much-needed stability in the crunch semi-final in Christchurch, writes JON CARDINELLI.
