I think if they lose Heyneke Meyer won't be allowed back into the country.

Certainly need a big, big improvement!

Samoa are not in their best shape either. Both teams will be looking to prove themselves. This could be an epic match...

Thanks for the thread Notch.

Interesting to see that Samoa have brought in Stanley at 10 - they clearly realise that having as erratic a goalkicking performance as they had against the Eagles could cost them this game.

This is a huge match and I cannot see anything other than the Boks manically searching for atonement. And achieving it.

Now i know i have said this before, but i really cannot see SA losing to Samoa.

I never thought that SA would lose to Japan either. But this game is a must win for SA today.

The pressure is on SA, they really need a BP win and a good performance. Luckily for SA, they are a team that can handle pressure. I believe SA may just run over Samoa.

du Preez has to be a little careful here, Barnes does not like being told how to referee a game and will card him if he doesn't stop.

Burger handling it on the ground was a clear penalty to Samoa there.

Again the bigger sides seemingly getting the benefit of the doubt. Agree with prof, penalty Samoa with Burger handling on the ground.

That's why Barnes is one of my favourite ref's (even though many hate him). Took the call from his linesman and trusted him, no TMO required. Great stuff from him clap

Hes just lucky he had one that made a decision. Most of them just stand there and shrug their shoulders.

I felt he was very good there myself although I do agree with the linesman making and standing by his decision. Barnes is doing a very good job and is very clear in his rulings.

Very good refereeing from him there. Telling Tualigi not to go down so easy.

This is going to be a monster kick if it goes over.

Maybe a penalty, but a yellow would have been harsh. Once Tuilagi dived the penalty should have been reversed. I think it's Tuilagi that was lucky not to be carded.

A yellow card for Tuilagi would have been harsh but certainly a reversal of the penalty warranted, simply must remove that shoite from our game.

Maybe, but World Rugby did say they were going to stamp down on diving, and that yellow cards would be issued. Allowing Tuilagi to get away with it sends out the wrong message. I do think he should have been carded.

I think it was a yellow, but wouldn't complain if the penalty had have been reversed. Tuilagi just got away with a block as well. He's going to pick up a card if he keeps up with the indiscipline.

Samoa are very poor in their defensive lines and discipline. They are gifting SA a TBP here. SA have not been that impressive if I may be honest.

Williams is sheer class.

Looks like a great Try for Samoa there.
