South Africa: South African rugby problems are systemic

The state of South African rugby: “We currently have the best depth of talent of any rugby nation. Sadly, off the field and possibly at Bok level, things fall apart.”

    South Africa do not have any backs at all in the erntire
    country.
    They have big forwards who set out to bash the opposition
    but they end up getting bashed by the end of the test by the All Blacks.
    Every rugby supporter knows the physical wear of being bashed shows up towards the end of a game.
    After a couple opf ‘tests ?’ against the england third team and another ‘test ?’ against Fiji South Africa can’t continue physically any more in spite of the week off.
    Jake White knows they can only play on their home grounds and will probably be third in tri nations as usual
