The Springboks bully England 58-10 in Bloemfontein

The Springboks bully England 58-10

The Springboks for once followed through with the nations expectations and battered the second rate English side 58-10 on saturday in Bloemfontein with a display of brutal tackling and quality finishing.

The English excluded a lot of their big name players due to the Heineken Cup final a week ago, and on top of that a number of the guys who are in SA came down with illness. That said, the Boks showed a passion and ferocity seldom seen by the men in Green & Gold.

The Boks loose trio smashed the English on numerous occasions and the backline finished off when needed. Bryan Habana once again showed his class in every aspect of his game, with some massive touch finders and two blistering tries, the second of which displayed the mans true commitment and determination.

The Springboks had a second string side over in the UK last year, and the series was tied 1-1. So now the question is, full strength against full strength, who will prevail in the group stages when the two sides meet at the World Cup later this year?

Full strength against full strength will be a different story however you've got to back the green and gold after two crushing wins, it wasnt just the score, but the way they won that gives them that important Psychological edge for September in France.
