Sykes, Wolla get the call

Peter de Villiers has named a training squad from which the South African XV to take on a Namibian XV will be named. As the pre-Lions tour warmup match will take place on the eve of the Super 14 final, no Bulls players have been selected.

There are a number of uncapped players in the mix, with Sharks forwards Steven Sykes and Jean Deysel rewarded for some promising work in last year’s Currie Cup and this year’s Super 14. The former has been particularly impressive in the number 4 shirt for the coastal side and his call-up is testament to that. Lions scrumhalf Janno Vermaak is also there, along with a surprising selection in the form of WP centre, Morgan Newman.

Earl Rose and Wian du Preez have both been on Bok tours before, although neither has a test cap.

There is a strong Sharks contingent to the squad, with John Smit, Bismarck du Plessis and Tendai Mtawarira among the front rankers. There is no spot for Jannie du Plessis, indicating that Smit will be the tighthead. Sykes is joined by teammate Johann Muller in the second row, while Ryan Kankowski is also in the mix. Adi Jacobs, Odwa Ndungane and JP Pietersen have all been included, while there is no room for either Rory Kockott or Stefan Terblance. Ruan Pienaar and Deon Carstens were not considered due to injury.

Peter Grant and Earl Rose look to cover the flyhalf position, while Adriaan Strauss will be the backup hooker.

Here is the full squad:

Props: Wian Du Preez, Tendai Mtawarira, John Smit (capt)
Hookers: Bismarck Du Plessis, Adriaan Strauss
Locks: Andries Bekker, Johann Muller, Steven Sykes
Loose forwards: Heinrich Brüssow, Schalk Burger, Jean Deysel, Ryan Kankowski,Juan Smith
Scrumhalves: Ricky Januarie, Jano Vermaak
Flyhalves: Peter Grant, Earl Rose
Centres: Jean de Villiers, Adi Jacobs, Morgan Newman
Wings/Fullbacks: Odwa Ndungane, Jongi Nokwe, JP Pietersen

  • guys – remember this is a warmup game to test some combinations and give fringe players a run. It is obviously an indicator as to what Div is thinking, though, but since there are no Bulls involved, you can’t really read too much into it.

    What I would say, though, is that anyone who is not from the Bulls and has not been named here is unlikely to get a look in.

    Just something that I forgot to put in – Jacque Fourie is missing for personal reasons.

    @Morné (Comment 19) : that one’s a bit left field, I’ll admit.

    But let’s just say you had to pick another centre, given that you can’t have Fourie or any of the Bulls guys. Who would it be?

  • Newman is a bolter and a big surprise…but how many of you have actually seen him play? I haven’t seen enough of him to make a judgement call either way. I do know that he was highly rated in the Cape last season and it’s been a surprise that he hasn’t had a look in for the Stormers this season.

    Remember he has featured for the Emerging Boks in both 2007 and 2008 and therefore obviously he was one that PDV has been keeping an eye on!

  • hi all
    nice squad considering no bulls I think he has earmarked Odwa as F/B and Rose as F/H but he could also go with Rose as F/B and Grand as F/H nah I would go with Grant @ F/H and Odwa @ F/B the rest pick themselves Might even turn out to be a nice game
    Rob is this going to televised hope so.

  • Am a little surprised that Ludik didn’t crack the nod or even Duane Vermeulen…but I guess it came down to a choice between Wolla and Vermeulen and Wolla’s great CC form of last year probably swayed it in his favour!

    Position: Centre

    Province: WP
    WP Caps: 40
    WP Points: 82 (5p, 11c, 9t)

    Although he has 40 Provincial caps to his name, Morgan will make his debut for the Vodacom Stormers this year. A former SA u/21 player, Morgan captained the Emerging Boks team that took part in the IRB Nations Cup in Romania in 2008. With some talented players vying to make the centre jersey their own, Morgan will be looking for some solid performances to make him a serious contender for a permanent place in the starting line-up.

    Will be interesting to see how he comes through. Does have a good pedigree so willing to give him a chance before I pass judgement.

    As Rob said earlier, it’s not like we are flush with inside centre’s (outside of JDV, Frans and Meisiekind) so let’s see how he performs

    Well let’s wait and see.

    There is NO WAY he will be involved in the Lions series as we have JDV, Steyn, Adi, Fourie and Wynand Olivier who will definitely be ahead of him in the pecking order.

    Maybe PDV is doing what Jake did when he selected Nokwe for the EOYT in 2004 or was it 2005?

    Let him get some experience of the Bok ‘culture’ :smile:

    Frans is 2-3 weeks away from fitness I also think that Stephan has lost a yard of pace thats why its Odwa I dont think it will be JPP @ F/B for he has the wing spot in the Boks done and dusted and the purpose of this exercise “He added that the game against the Namibian XV would allow him to test systems and plays in preparation for the Lions Test series”-Tank Lanning Sport 24

  • @Morné (Comment 59) : I have never seen him play – I said progress on the basis that he’s about 100 years younger than Bobes is. If you wanted a bolter at centre, I’d have picked Swannie or Zuks… that’s just my bias coming through, though.

  • Played 40 games for WP, thats 10 short of a huge milestone, and nobody here can remember Morgan. Hasn’t left much of an impression then.

    But even then that would be a few years (5+) of VC games. I wonder if they aren’t including age group games as well.

  • No Rory… Real tragedy that.

    Glad Deysel and Sykes made the cut; Sykes especially is red hot at the moment – finally living up to his promise – with an athletic background like his you would expect him to make great strides as he gains the technical abilities.
