Not that they didn't make a lot of mistakes themselves anyway. The scrum was really poor and there were lots of other mistakes too, think they tried to play too much rugby under pressure too.
The backs were very poor defensively, can't help but feel the coaching is poor in that regard and they could do a better job of developing players. It showed how much they rely on Aki and you can't just rely so much on an NIQ like that.
the props were a big weakness in general, think Bealham's introduction was delayed as they were almost unsure which side to bring him on to
a few backs took too much stuff on to themselves
must also point out there was a blatant foot in touch for Steyn's try
