Here we go, chaps, the first test of the tour.

Will the tired Boks be able to lift themselves yet again, after a year of unprecedented success? Will Beast Mtawarira be allowed to take the field?

Will the French be able to capitalise on a perceived Bok weakness as scrumtime? Or will home ground advantage be enough to secure victory for the hosts, just as it has done for the last 12 years?

Kick-off in Toulouse is at 21h45 SA time.

Teams:

France: 15 Damien Traille, 14 Vincent Clerc, 13 Yann David, 12 Maxime Mermoz, 11 Cédric Heymans, 10 François Trinh-Duc, 9 Julien Dupuy, 8 Louis Picamoles, 7 Imanol Harinordoquy, 6 Thierry Dusautoir (captain), 5 Romain Millo-Chluski, 4 Lionel Nallet, 3 Nicolas Mas, 2 William Servat, 1 Fabien Barcella
Replacements: 16 Dimitri Szarzewski, 17 Sylvain Marconnet, 18 Sébastien Chabal, 19 Julien Bonnaire, 20 Morgan Parra, 21 David Marty, 22 Maxime Médard.

South Africa: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 JP Pietersen, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Adi Jacobs, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 Fourie du Preez, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Schalk Burger, 6 Heinrich Brüssow, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Bakkies Botha, 3 John Smit (captain), 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Replacements: 16 Adriaan Strauss, 17 Wian du Preez, 18 CJ van der Linde, 19 Andries Bekker, 20 Danie Rossouw, 21 Ruan Pienaar, 22 Wynand Olivier.


Referee: Wayne Barnes (England)
Assistant referees: George Clancy (Ireland), James Jones (Wales)
Television match official: Graham Hughes (England)

    Stop moaning, be thankful for what you have. These guys over here use two channels for 1 game per weekend.

    Showsport 1 for a football match in English
    Showsport 2 for the same football match in Arabic.

    And then they drop the CC or S14 games that they had advertised because they don’t have enough channels. :evil:

    CNUTS have never heard of simulcast.

Both of them got isolated and lost the ball, but the French forwards were streets ahead of ours tonight, so that happened to virtually all of our ball carriers anyway.

  • @Me2 aka Mama Shark (Comment 144) : the whole pack got stuffed. Bismarck was rotten and Beat just didn’t turn up, although I think I know why. Bakkies just wanted to fight, but Vic had a good game. Heinrich was superb, but with the way the front five was getting stuffed and Schalk was hanging around in the backline, it was always going to be tough on Kanko. He coughed a few balls, but then so did everyone else.

    Shit, some guys were completely invisible all game. Jaque Fourie? World’s Best Passenger

  • 10 Morné Steyn:
    His worst game in the Bok jersey – a right royal mare. Kicked directly into touch, kicking too deep and then a yellow card for tripping.
    3/10

    Only one player with a lower score in the team.

    8 Ryan Kankowski:
    Looked out of his depth. A knock-on at a maul, lost the ball that led to Clerc’s try and also lost the ball in contact too easily – not to mention the yellow card for killing the ball.
    2/10

    wonder though why ruan wasn’t brought in for kirchner or steyn. is it because he is not toplay FB anymore and was Pdivvy hoping till last minute that there will be some penalties that morne could kick over.

  • ‘SA Embassy chose singer’
    2009-11-14 21:17Email | Print

    Happy with his singing (File)
    Toulouse – French team manager Jo Maso said the choice of singer at each Test in France is made by the visiting team’s diplomatic staff.

    Video: Botched South African anthem

    “Every time we welcome a foreign side, we ask the embassy to propose people for the national anthems,” said Maso.

    “It’s the South African Embassy that put forward this man and we respected their choice.”

    Ras Dumisani, a Durban native who sported dreadlocks tucked into a huge red, green and white Rastafarian cap, sang Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika ahead of the Boks defeat against France in Toulouse.

    Dumisani was aghast when told that Springbok coach Peter de Villiers and several players were unhappy with his rendition, saying “everyone at the stadium told me I sang well, even after the match.”
