Erasmus praises Springbok

Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus praised his team for the gutsy last gasp come-from-behind 29-26 victory over France in Paris last night. While far from being their best performance, Erasmus says they learnt crucial lessons from their one point defeat against England last weekend and it was them on the right side of the result this weekend. Erasmus was particularly complimentary of the manner in which his side chased down a 14 points deficit and having two disallowed tries to snatch victory in the 85th minute through a Bongi Mbonambi try. Erasmus says his side handled the pressure and big moments better.
