South Africa got their Rugby Championship campaign underway with a convincing 26 – 10 win over New Zealand in Mbombela on Saturday evening.
An already under pressure All Blacks side took to the field hoping to rectify the issues they had in their historic home series loss to Ireland in July.
Unfortunately for Ian Foster’s men they put on a rather lacklustre performance in the face of intense Springbok pressure.
Unable to make any real inroads into the Bok defence until the 78th minute where they scored a long-range consolation try. They now head to Ellis Park in Johannesburg for what will be a very tough second fixture before returning home.
For so long the leaders in the clubhouse in terms of game plan, execution and innovation this All Blacks side looks lost for answers, a fact that the internet let them know.
Here are some of the best memes & gifs doing the rounds online.
