Muir: Expect big things from Boks on home ground

2011-08-05 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Springbok assistant coach Dick Muir says he is ashamed of the way the Springboks performed on their recent tour of Australasia.

He said the Springboks were an “embarrassment” after they first lost 39-20 to Australia in Sydney and then 40-7 to New Zealand in Wellington.

Muir says the two Tests were a wake-up call and admitted that they have made the wrong choices.

However, Muir has assured Bok fans not to get too despondent ahead of the Rugby World Cup: “Expect big things from the team. It will be important to win the [Tri-Nations] games in South Africa,” said Muir.
