Visagie – Boks should pick Human

South Africa should seriously consider calling up Daan Human for the tour by the British and Irish Lions later this year.

Stephen Nell writes in Die Burger that, that was the advice offered on Monday from former Springbok tighthead prop Cobus Visagie, who warned that South African rugby should jealously guard its intellectual property.

Visagie and Human both left Western Province to join overseas clubs.

“South African rugby’s scrumming has gone backwards because players are discarded too quickly,” said Visagie.

“The best South African loosehead is Daan Human. He is doing brilliantly at Toulouse and is one of the best paid loosehead props in Europe. I definitely think he can play a role against the Lions and it does not have to be at the expense of any of the younger players. Daan scrums well and works hard on the field.

“I rate Beast Mtawarira and actually think Brian Mujati should be a loosehead prop.

“Heinke van der Merwe scrums around you. It’s something referees are going to come down on. The question is also how good the rest of his game (apart from scrumming) is.”

Visagie believes not even the Bulls possess a feared scrumming unit.

“The Sharks are the only South African team that are solid on their own ball,” he said.

Saracens director of rugby Eddie Jones slammed the Stormers scrum after Sunday’s game, which the South Africans won 43-33 at Newlands.

Visagie, however, was not that critical.

“The Stormers were unlucky to lose two tightheads. They also did not fare any worse than other teams against us. We’ve done worse things to other teams’ scrums. I also know scrumming is something the Stormers want to address,” said Visagie.

Stormers’ assistant coach Gary Gold saw the positive, which is that young loosehead prop Wicus Blaauw slotted in well at tighthead.

“We learned a lot in the process. We now know we have a fourth option at tighthead. Wicus did very well against a strong Saracens scrum,” said Gold.

“We also managed to get quick ball at 90% of the scrums. We scored a few excellent tries. We are not the coaching team who should be worried.”

  • Sure thing Cobus – if Beast is rated by you, why do we need Daan?

    We have more problems on the TH side anyway.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 4) : Reminds me of the front rowers for the Bulls a few years back. They were playing a Kiwi side and the Kiwi commentators loved Bosman and Marius Hurter.

    I was just wondering how I forgot to comment on this little gem and then I read the comments on this thread. :oops: Seems scrumming of a different kind was the change topic. :razz:
