Listeners give vent to disappointment in Bok defeat, ask what went wrong?

The Springboks disappointed their fans this past Saturday when they were served a 57-0 defeat to rival team All Blacks.

702 anchor, Azania Mosaka took to the lines, asking listeners, what went wrong?

I believe a big problem is in the mindset of our players. I think until you get that right, the skills is a secondary thing. I'm suggesting the bigger problem lies with the administration.

Sean, caller

It's not the administrators who are at fault. They are just not good enough.

Mike, caller

This isn't about the coach. The All Blacks play strategic rugby. Their coach doesn't play the same players. Our role is to support the coach.

Vusi, caller
