Thanks for tuning in!

What a heartbreaking result for the Boks! They deserved to win this game but crucial errors at key times cost them.

Yes, Bryan Habana's yellow card was an absolutely ridiculous call, but we must remember it was Ruan Pienaar's kick which went directly into touch which led to that situation unfolding.

And then of course Morne Steyn failing to kick that last penalty out was inexplicable.

Those two errors cost South Africa today.

It doesn't get any easier next week as the All Blacks lie in wait in Wellington...
