The last twelve months have not given South African rugby fans much to smile about. Defeats to the likes of Italy, Wales, Argentina and Ireland have seen the Springboks plummet to a lowest ever world ranking of 7th and it is difficult to see how things will improve.
Whilst they still have some supreme talent at their disposal, the pool is not as full as it once was. However, the malaise runs deeper than simply a lack of fresh talent.

the Bedford Blues.
