White blames Referee for dismal performance
By Tarryn Le Chat
Jake White and Captain of the Springboks, John Smit, blames Referee Paul Honiss for the heavy loss against the Wallabies on Saturday in Brisbane. The Springboks were confident coming onto the field, but claim that Honiss penalised them before they could get their hands on the ball for off-sides and hands in ruck. White says as he listened to commentary from former Wallaby, Rob Kafer, on the TV wrap-up, he agreed with the statement that Honiss blew poorly. According to White, Australia got away with murder at the breakdowns. Meanwhile, New Zealand coach, Graham Henry, is convinced the Boks will not produce the same inept performance in Wellington on Saturday. Henry believes the Boks might bounce back at the weekend, saying they will take out their frustrations on the field as they are a physical pack, but only time will tell whether the Boks can lift their game.
