It's a shame we've set up quite defensively rather than coming and taking the game to them, but as a defensive set up goes it's probably the best we could put out (given injuries etc). I think Piq is the right choice up front as he's got abit more physicality than Dindane which we'll need, and I think Mullins and Mokoena are actually OK at what they do, they just get a bad press because what they do is extremely boring. Gutted we've just come to 'park the bus' though, you just can't do that against the big teams - they have the firepower to get through eventually.

We're not actually looking TOO bad, touch wood - just soaking up the pressure (albeit not looking too comfortable doing so) and getting the odd half chance up top. And that's all it takes as long as we keep it at one - a half chance and abit of Avram's new-found luck!
