Snyman dropped already

Poor bloody Joe Snyman has been dropped from the Lions 22 after just one outing. Loose forward replacement Derrick Minnie has been preferred to the former Sharks second rower for this weekend’s clash against the Cheetahs.

With the Sharks suddenly looking very thin in the second row, I wonder if Snyman might not have started to regret his move up the N3. One would think he’d have stood an odds-on chance of being in the Sharks match 22 this weekend.

In the only other change, the Lions schoolboy coach whose name I have yet to learn (Jake something? Oh no wait, he’s not actually the coach!) has rotated his tighthead options, with Gert Muller starting and Kevin Buys providing cover off the wood this weekend.

Lions team to face the Cheetahs:

15. Earl Rose
14. Dusty Noble
13. Alwyn Hollenbach
12. Walter Venter
11. Johan Jackson
10. Herkie Kruger
9. Jano Vermaak
8. Willem Alberts
7. Franco van der Merwe
6. Cobus Grobbelaar (capt)
5. Willem Stoltz
4. Nico Luus
3. Gert Muller
2. Hans van Dyk
1. JC Janse van Rensburg

RESERVES:

16. Derek Harwood
17. Kevin Buys
18. Robert Kruger
19. Derick Minnie
20. Chris Jonck
21. Pieter Engelbrecht
22. Michael Killian

  • Snyman came on last week, and very, very late, dived on a try-scorer to concede a penalty. The Bulls kicked to the corner and I can’t recall the outcome, but quite possibly he’s been punished for stupid and blatant indiscipline.

  • The reason why Minnie is on the bench is to cover for Cobus Grobbelaar as he might not be 100% fit, remember he went of 5 minutes into the 2nd half against the Blue Bulls.

    Howzit Walter.
    Any news and views about how things are in the camp. I’m still not sure how I feel about that winning ways bunch but I like the idea of Kevin de Klerk being the chief.

    I’ll probably get a chance to chat to some of the players after the game tomorrow, haven’t had a chance as yet. I haven’t even met the new coach yet!

  • Well, we seem to always struggle against the Cheetahs in the Currie Cup…I don’t know why. We last beat them in the CC in 2006, and our win ratio against them since 1991 is the worst of all the SA Teams, only 44.74%
