Team Announcement: Boks vs Scotland

Author: Stephen Smith (StevieS)

The Boks take on a confident Scotland this Saturday at Murrayfield at 19:20 (SA time), with the Scots having thrashed Fiji 54-17. Winger Tommy Seymour was in particularly good form, bagging a hat-trick of tries. The Boks are 5th in the World Rugby rankings, with the Scots one place back in 6th. Home ground advantage will definitely be a factor as the Scots have only lost once at home in the last two years, and that to the All Blacks who had to dig deep to win 22-17.

Bok team for Twickenham

1 Nov 18 17:30 by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring) | 106 Comments

Van Zyl gets another start for the Boks at 9. Is this guy honestly the next best scrumhalf in Rassie’s opinion? PSDT moves back to 5 with Thor starting at blindside. Whiteley starts at 8.Rassie has two locks in Lood and Snyman on the bench. Nkosi will hopefully continue where he left off against England from 14.

Interestingly Thomas du Toit is preferred over Trevor Nyakane as the reserve loose head. Esterhuizen makes the bench in place of the expected Kolbe / Aplon.

A season by numbers

30 Oct 18 16:35 by Stephen Smith (StevieS) | 7 Comments

Hi, Sharks fans

First off, well done to all of the players, coaches and administrators. That was an incredibly tense final for me, especially when we were down at half-time, after having spurned a penalty right under the poles. Safe to say we can also thank Sergeal Petersen for charging Rob Du Preez’s place-kick early as it allowed Rob a second shot and a chance to calm his nerves a bit. [...]
