Faf de Klerk Pushes All The Right Buttons To Wind Jonny Hill Up

South Africa closed out their Autumn Nations Series with an almighty thumping of England at Twickenham on Saturday.

From 1 – 23 South Africa outplayed their opposite number in a truly dominant display that reminded the rugby world just how dangerous they can be when firing on all cylinders.

Leading the charge was the ever-present figure of Faf de Klerk who has become somewhat of a rugby icon over the past five years.

Diminutive in figure only, the scrumhalf punches well above his weight often smashing players who significantly outweigh him into oblivion.

On Saturday however it was his ability to get under the skin of the English players that was most noticeable as he time and again pushed them into making errors they otherwise wouldn’t have.

One such incident involved the giant secondrow Jonny Hill who got so frustrated with de Klerk that he catapulted him out of ruck in a moment that summed up all of English Rugby’s frustrations.

England had just been awarded a penalty which would’ve gone a long way to relieving the pressure they were under but instead the penalty was reversed in favour of the Boks.

This was world class s***housery from the scrumhalf that shows just why he is so valuable to the Bok cause.
