Powerful Bok pack and bench for Japan

17 Oct 19 08:30 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 9 Comments

This is clearly a team that plans to take on the fleet-footed Japanese team using the powerful Bok pack to prevent them from getting their high speed attacking game going. Lood starts next to Etzebeth with Snyman and Mostert on the bench.

Willemse at 15 against Canada

7 Oct 19 09:52 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 8 Comments

Due to the short turnaround between matches, Rassie has given pretty much all his dirt trackers an opportunity against Canada. The loose trio of Louw, Smith and Kolisi must count towards one of the lightest ever fielded by the Boks. The backline from the Namibia match has been rejigged with Willemse at 15 shifting Gelant to 14 and Nkosi to 11 (interesting in that Rassie has to date only used Nkosi at 14).

There is a lot of firepower on the bench although one should hope in this case the bomb squad will have to deal with a false alarm.

Continuity for the Boks

18 Sep 19 10:26 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 120 Comments

Rassie has kept the match-day squad from the warm up for the crunch game on Saturday. The winner of the first pool game for the Boks & All Blacks will very likely end top of the pool and have the easier game in the quarter finals.

Bosch back at 10

29 Aug 19 12:15 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 151 Comments

Curwin Bosch is back from injury, which should mean that Boeta Chamberlain will be available for the Sharks U/21 team for the final against the Bulls

[...]



Andre and Thomas start against the Bulls

22 Aug 19 11:09 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 97 Comments

Andre Esterhuizen and Thomas du Toit have been called up to start against a desperate Bulls team who may face relegation if they loose by more than 7 points. Curwin Bosch is still unavailable so Boeta Chamberlain gets another chance after a very impressive Currie Cup debut.

New Shark Andisa Ntsila have been selected as loose forward replacement.

Sharks take on the Lions without Bosch

15 Aug 19 15:35 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 93 Comments

Sean Everitt has catapulted Boeta Chamberlain straight into the starting team to replace Curwin Bosch who is out injured due to a lower back sprain.

[...]



Marcell and Thomas starts against the Pumas

14 Aug 19 15:18 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 43 Comments

Schalk Brits will captain the Boks against the Pumas at Loftus. This is probably the last chance for some of these players to convince Rassie to take them with to Japan. I would expect Rassie to start his first choice team against Japan in the Boks’ only other World Cup warm-up match.

[...]



Majola, Vermeulen, Mohamba and Fassi starts against the Cheetahs

8 Aug 19 11:53 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 136 Comments

Sean Everitt has made a few changes in his squad for the crucial match against the Cheetahs at Kings Park:

Majola and Schoeman swaps places in the starting team and bench, Phepsi moves to 6, Vermeulen starts at 7 and Stringer drops out of the squad. Evan Roos (who still played for Paarl Boys last year) comes into the squad as loose forward replacement.

In the backline Nohamba and Wright swaps jerseys and so do Smith and Fassi.

[...]



Beast starts in Salta

8 Aug 19 08:51 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 14 Comments

Rassie has swapped front rows for the final Rugby Championship game. He has kept the rest of the squad the same as in the draw in New Zealand.

The match could decide the winner of the Rugby Championship – a bonus point win against the Pumas will definitely clinch it for the Boks. If the All Blacks cannot manage a bonus point against the Wallabies, a win will do it for the Boks.

Sharks team to face Pumas

1 Aug 19 13:06 by Jan Dyman (JD) | 40 Comments

The Cell C Sharks team to play the Phakisa Pumas in Nelspruit has been announced.

Coach Sean Everitt has opted to make only one rotational change with Phepsi Buthelezi starting at 7 and Jacques Vermeulen shifting to the bench. [...]



Mapimpi starts in Wellington

24 Jul 19 07:50 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 42 Comments

Mapimpi, PSDT and Etzebeth remains into the starting team with the rest of the places reserved for the players that flew across earlier. Kwagga Smit will get a chance to prove that he can fit in at test level.

Great to see Frans Steyn on the bench again. In my opinion the Boks will stand zero change at the World Cup unless Steyn starts at inside centre.

Sharks on the hunt for Super Rugby coach

21 Jul 19 13:06 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 72 Comments

With the Sharks confirming earlier this week that head coach Robert du Preez has decided to part ways with the union, finding a new head coach for Super Rugby in 2020 must surely be new CEO Eduard Coetzee’s most pressing priority. [...]



Smith and Fassi swap for WP

18 Jul 19 11:54 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 112 Comments

Sean Everitt has kept the team that got trounced by the Kwas intact, except that Fassi and Smith swap places in the starting team and on the bench. Every one in the squad will have to lift their performance dramatically if the Sharks want any hope of beating a WP team that was really strong in especially the scrums. Hopefully the disaster last Friday will serve as a wake-up call.

[...]



Bok team for the Wallabies

17 Jul 19 16:37 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 55 Comments

Rynhardt Elstadt at open side is a strange selection.  However it will be great to see Marcell Coetzee and Frans Steyn running out for the Boks again.

The 15 first choice players should already be on their way to New Zealand, so it should be safe to say that apart from players like PSDT, Lood and Etzebeth coming back from injury the rest in this team would now count as second choice. It also means De Ellendig is likely to start at 12 against the All Blacks.

[...]



Super team vs. Griquas

9 Jul 19 22:03 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 218 Comments

Sean Everitt has picked a team full of Super Rugby experience for Friday night’s game. JPP slots back in at 13 next to Ward at 12. I am looking forward to seeing the loose trio of Stringer, Vermeulen and Mtembu taking on the Kwas.

It seems the old 22 player limit has now been removed in 2019.
