The Tri-Nations – Part 2

This is just getting too exciting. It’s do or die for the Springboks. In the last test of the Tri-Nations 2004, the Boks face the Aussies. It’s going to be a cracker I think. If the Boks win, they win the tournament, if they lose, they get the wooden spoon again!

After emphatically beating the Kiwis at Ellis Park on Saturday 14th, the Springboks are well on their way to becoming Tri-Nations champions for the first time since 1998. Back then under Nick Mallett, the Boks were unstoppable, and now, they seem to be returning to that form that has been missing for over five years!
The win over the All Blacks was great. 40-26 is not just a scrape-home, it is a domination against what is arguably the best team in the world at the moment. Well, for the time being at least! The Boks also outscored the All Blacks 5 tries to 2 and gained a valuable bonus point, and denied the All Blacks a point by winning by such a big margin.
So, to Durban (King’s Park), the most exciting annual rugby tournament moves and like I said, I think it’s going to be a cracker!
C’mon the Boks!!!!
