THREE out of three! That’s all that matters today. The conditions were atrocious, and the Boks’ performance wasn’t much better, but they won and finish the season on a high. It took another outstanding defensive effort by Jean de Villiers and his men to see off a fired up England here on Saturday ... but if the Boks were bad, England were terrible.
