Not a bad evening of sports. Liverpool are top of the BPL after a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace and the All Blacks put up a solid performance at Ellis Park to beat the Boks 27-38. A real stand out All Blacks player today was substitute fly half, Beauden Barrett who came in to replace Aaron Cruden who together with Colin Slade are appearing to be pretenders to the fly half throne. It looks like New Zealand has found a natural successor to Dan Carter who himself replaced the great Andrew Mehrtens. Mehrtens was the successor to the legendary Grant Fox.
