Tough afternoon ahead against a Bok team with about 60% first choices. Hope they give a good account and, perhaps more importantly, no-one sustains a serious injury. Still think Basham shouldn't be risked.
What's going on?

Without stating the obvious, when I saw these fixtures, to have SA as your last warm up game seemed bizarre. They are already in gear having just finished the SH comp, and, as per previous Wales RWC build ups, we have a basket of injury fall outs, compounded by international ‘ retirements’.

If SA are so inclined and hit their straps then this could easily become a tuning.

With AWJ, Tipuric, Carre, Davies-King, Webb, Ken O, Macleod, Cory Hill missing, and notable injuries hanging over Lake, Daf Jenkins, Anscombe, Jonny W, Faletau, Cuthbert, Biggar and Sanjay…the final 33 is going to be as much about fitness as anything else.

I hope the boys selected put up a good account of themselves.

Pretty fair summation there Wil. I am looking forward to the 9/10/12/13 combination despite their inexperience at this level. All hinges, of course, on us giving a good account of ourselves in the front 5. Come through this with a good set piece result will ink in all individuals involved. An inexperienced back 3 could struggle today. Time for our Tom to show everyone that we have a successor to Liam ready to go.

That  Welsh pack will get torn a new one. Not Keen on Dyer or Evans at FB and Rogers is a FB, not a winger. I can see a cricket score here

That's a fair assessment from Will and GPR.
A patched-up up Wales team, up against  a well oiled one, just come through a competitive tournament .
More about performance, and hopefully  avoiding  more injuries I reckon for us.
On the face of it, do we need this extra game ?

Fair comments. It might well have been wiser to finish with a less difficult fixture. I suppose those who make the arrangements would argue that the number of injuries could not have been foreseen, but still... I also suppose they wanted a big team to help fill the coffers. Short-term gain, then - but long term? We'll see.

All Boks so far but not really putting the points on the board, due to missed pens. Scrum is getting a hiding , but our lineout is functioning well. 6-5

This TMO is useless. It was a clear yellow card but there’s no way the Boks player was catching that ball. Never a pen try
