Muir: We have to adapt to a kicking game

The Springboks’ preparations for Saturday’s Test against Scotland at Murrayfield have been rocked by scrumhalf Fourie du Preez’s withdrawal from the match after pulling a quadricep muscle in training.

Mike Greenaway writes for The Star that it is a considerable blow because Du Preez’s generalship is all the more valuable in the tricky northern hemisphere conditions and because the Boks are blooding a new flyhalf in Ruan Pienaar. Ricky Januarie will replace Du Preez, and while the former is very dangerous going forward and on dry fields, he does not have the confident
kicking game that is required in the wet and this will exert more pressure on Pienaar.

“Fourie is out and it is a setback,” said assistant coach Dick Muir.

“But it is an opportunity for Ricky. We are really hoping that the rain holds off, but if it does not, and we have to adapt to a kicking game, we might have to move Ruan to scrumhalf at some stage of the game and bring Frans Steyn on at 10.”

Coach Peter de Villiers said he would replace Januarie with a forward rather than a back.
“I am bringing in Danie Rossouw and changing the split on the bench from 4-3 to 5-2 in favour of the forwards.”

Muir said the Boks were looking to run the ball, providing conditions are favourable.

  • Big test for Ruan – now he doesn’t have the insurance of having the trusted boot of FdP as backup.

    Go Ruan, Go Ricky, Go BOKKE!!!

  • FdP will be missed, he protected Ruan to a large extent in the Wales game. The Boks will be too good for the Scotts anyway. I FdP will be ok for the Roses :roll:

  • Once upon a time lived a beautiful Queen with large breasts.
    Nick the Dragon Slayer obsessed over the Queen for this reason.
    He knew that the penalty for his desire would be death should he try to touch them, but he had to try.

    One day Nick revealed his secret desire to his colleague, Horatio the Physician, the King’s chief doctor.. Horatio thought about this and said that he could arrange for Nick to more than satisfy his desire, but it would cost him 1000 gold coins to arrange it.

    Without pause Nick readily agreed to the scheme.

    The next day, Horatio made a batch of itching powder and poured a little bit into the Queen’s bra while she bathed.
    Soon after she dressed, the itching commenced and grew intense.

    Upon being summoned to the Royal Chambers to address this incident, Horatio informed the King and Queen that only a special saliva, if applied for four hours, would cure this type of itch, and that tests had shown that only the saliva of Nick would work as the antidote to cure the itch.

    The King, eager to help his Queen, quickly summoned Nick to their chambers.. Horatio then slipped Nick the antidote for the itching powder, which he put into his mouth, and for the next four hours, Nick worked passionately on the Queen’s large and magnificent breasts. The Queen’s itching was eventually relieved, and Nick left satisfied and hailed as a hero.

    Upon returning to his chamber, Nick found Horatio demanding his payment of 1000 gold coins. With his obsession now satisfied, Nick couldn’t have cared less knowing that Horatio could never report this matter to the King and with a laugh told him to get lost.

    The next day, Horatio slipped a massive dose of the same itching powder into the King’s underwear. The King immediately summoned Nick.

    The moral of the story – Pay your f’ing bills.

  • Old pirates, yes, they rob i;
    Sold I to the merchant ships,
    Minutes after they took i
    From the bottomless pit.
    But my hand was made strong
    By the and of the almighty.
    We forward in this generation
    Triumphantly.
    Wont you help to sing
    These songs of freedom? -
    cause all I ever have:
    Redemption songs;
    Redemption songs.

    Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
    None but ourselves can free our minds.
    Have no fear for atomic energy,
    cause none of them can stop the time.
    How long shall they kill our prophets,
    While we stand aside and look? ooh!
    Some say its just a part of it:
    Weve got to fulfil de book.

    Wont you help to sing
    These songs of freedom? -
    cause all I ever have:
    Redemption songs;
    Redemption songs;
    Redemption songs.

  • Now I was sitting waiting wishing
    That you believed in superstitions
    Then maybe you’d see the signs
    But Lord knows that this world is cruel
    And I ain’t the Lord, no I’m just a fool
    Learning loving somebody don’t make them love you

    Must I always be waiting waiting on you?
    Must I always be playing playing your fool?

    I sing ya songs I dance a dance
    I gave ya friends all a chance
    Putting up with them wasn’t worth never having you
    And maybe you been through this before
    But its my first time
    So please ignore
    The next few lines cause they’re directed at you

    I cant always be waiting waiting on you
    I cant always be playing playing your fool
    I keep playing your part
    But its not my scene
    Wont this plot not twist?
    I’ve had enough mystery.
    Keep building me up, then shooting me down
    Well im already down
    Just wait a minute
    Just sitting waiting
    Just wait a minute
    Just sitting waiting

    Well if I was in your position
    Id put down all my ammunition
    I’d wondered why’d it taken me so long
    But Lord knows that I’m not you
    And If I was I wouldn’t be so cruel
    Cause waiting on love ain’t so easy to do

    Must I always be waiting waiting on you?
    Must I always be playing playing your fool?
    No I cant always be waiting waiting on you
    I cant always be playing playing your fool, foool
