I find the purely sports oriented blogs pretty boring, so my apologies in advance.
Dear South Africa,
Thank you for the opportunity to play against you last night at Telstra Stadium. We have dusted the mantelpiece and cleared room for the Nelson Mandela Challenge Plate.
Please have it ready when we play the second game in Johannesburg later this month.
I must say that during the second half of the game your play was superb, tenacious and spirited. That last try by Drew Mitchell in his debut Wallabies game must really smart. Don't listen to the naysayers, the finger pointers, the coach etc. I thought the tactic of regularly kicking the ball to our wingers during the game was inspired. They're only the best in the world.
Keep it up.
A Wallabies Fan.
