  • @war1 (Comment 6) : Ok bring Jannie on, move Smit to hooker and then play Bismarck on the side…..could be a lot simpler if they just drop Bekker and play another loosie though

    My watch doesn’t have Bekker time…

    I really think he is a 2.08m long piece of deadwood…
    I hope one day he’s going to make me change my mind…

  • @blackshark (Comment 16) : he has the talent, just wasting it at centre i think, not a classic hard lock though but he can be useful if he pulls his socks up

  • Good call, Agree with the loosies comments on this thread, carrying bekker is unecessary, Danie can cover lock and loosies, but i would be happier if there was another lossie on the bench.

  • @war1 (Comment 19) :

    Well, now that you say it…the problem might be the socks…
    Unless they make a custom pair for him – he might have difficulties pulling them all the way up…

    I guess I just prefer old school locks…

  • Would have played Kanko instead of Bekker.
    Dropping WO was a tough choice. Would have at least put him there instead of Januarie as Ruan can cover 9,10 and 15.

    All in all good enough to beat the AB’s, good enough to wallop the Ausies.

    Go Bokke

  • it seems that ppl are still intent on making the boks underdogs, as if beating the all blacks 2 w/e’s in a row is not enough to prove the boys are on form

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 39) : did you hear bros’s interviews after the bulls game, he got the bulls next opponents wrong and then called jean deysel “jean de villiers” but that previous conversation went: “So you have the Cheetahs next” Kuun: “No, we actually have boland next (chuckles)”
