It would be so bad if we hadn't played well. We did a lot of things right. We dominated in the scrum, turned over loose ball and won opposition lineouts. We had lots of possession and territory was even. South Africa had 5 chances and took them all. It seems that N hemisphere teams need about 3 chances to score a try and the South Hemisphere need about 0.1 of a chance At the beginning of the year new laws were introduced and there seems to be a huge inconsistency in the way they are applied and last week England were penalised for things that were fine this week. It needs more time to become more consistent.
