What current and former players had to say after the Springboks’ 36-34 victory over the All Blacks on Saturday.
Amongst all the chaos,no one is talking bout that Cheslin-tackle on Ioane,2 meters from our line,where’s the haters who said he is too small??Im not gonna explain myself everytime,if your heart is big,you big enough,I Thank You!

Aphiwe “Ngcobo Express” Dyantyi must surely be front runner for
2018 SA Player of the Season. His left foot step on Barrett to score his 2nd try was my highlight. Man of the Match without a doubt. #NZLvRSA pic.twitter.com/2COgM9wvqR

5 tries against the ABs in New Zealand.
1st Bok win NZ since 2009.
1st Bok win in Wellington since 1998
Highest score against NZ in NZ.
I don’t care how much of a doubter or naysayer you are, you have to be impressed with that win!
