Wolla makes Bok bench


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

The Bok side to take on Italy has been named and Jean Deysel is one of three uncapped players in the match 22. The team shows several changes to the side that lost to France, all of them amongst the forwards.

Two players from that game have been ruled out entirely, with Bismarck du Plessis and Schalk Burger both succumbing to rib injuries. Adriaan Strauss will earn his seventh test cap as he starts at hooker, while versatile Danie Rossouw has been picked at blindside flank. Further rotational changes in the pack see Andries Bekker start ahead of Victor Matfield and uncapped Wian du Preez come in for Beast Mtawarira. Matfield, Mtawarira and Jean Deysel are all on the bench, together with the recalled BJ Botha, who will presumably take over at tighthead later in the game, with John Smit moving in to hooker. CJ van der Linde has been ruled out.

The backs are the same, although Francois Hougaard has been included as scrumhalf cover, with Ruan Pienaar and Wynand Olivier retaining their spots on a 4-3 bench. Last week, they were the only two backline replacements, as Peter de Villiers opted for a 5-2 split. He doesn’t have enough fit forwards to do the same against Italy.

Bok 22:

1 Wian du Preez (new cap)
2 Adriaan Strauss
3 John Smit (capt)
4 Bakkies Botha
5 Andries Bekker
6 Heinrich Brüssow
7 Danie Rossouw
8 Ryan Kankowski
9 Fourie du Preez
10 Morné Steyn
11 Bryan Habana
12 Adrian Jacobs
13 Jaque Fourie
14 JP Pietersen
15 Zane Kirchner
16 Tendai Mtawarira
17 Brendan Botha
18 Victor Matfield
19 Jean Deysel (new cap)
20 Francois Hougaard (new cap)
21 Ruan Pienaar
22 Wynand Olivier

    is it wrong to hope that Danie goes off early?

  • Well done Wolla…I have no doubts that you’ll grab this opportunity…and the ball…with both hands…

    Eish, ja neh? Bekker – but if he sticks to basic (does he know how? ) – he should be okay…

    Kanko – you have to turn the corner here – nothing will be solid unless you put in another good performance against Ireland as well…

    Bokke!

  • I would have given Smit a bit of a ‘rest’ and played him at 2 with BJ starting at TH. Kanko’s last chance to prove himself I think.

  • @robdylan (Comment 2) : How Danie gets to start is a myth in the last three games he has looked jaded and hasn’t done anything amazing imho.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 5) : I agree, its I think the last chance Kanko has to prove himself. If he carries on the way he has this season I think he will also lose the Black and WHite jersey to Alberts.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 5) : is it really, though? I mean, we know what he has to offer as a player. Sure, he’s off form, but do we honestly want to discard him based on one or two dodgy performances? Can we also get rid of Morne Steyn and Jaque Fourie, then? And Kirchner surely has to go.

  • @robdylan (Comment 9) : be reasonable…..Kanko hasn’t been great this whole year. Morne came in because he grabbed his chance with both hands. Zane and Kanko in the same boat IMHO

  • @robdylan (Comment 9) : Rob unfortunately this season’s performance is giving more ammunition to the Spies lobby group, and if he doesn’t turn the corner soon he may find he will not be selected again, especially with calls going for Alberts and Vermeulen to be included.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 12) :

    I agree…he has been consistent this year…consitently bad..he had teh odd good game, whereas Morne for intsnt has been sonsitently good and had the odd off game..

    Unfortunately, and Rob I think you know this, one cannot rely on “maybe he gets back into form” the “inform” player will have to get the nod..

  • @Xmas Ice-Icle (Comment 29) : are you serious about that? As you’ll have noticed, we’ve really scaled back on posting articles form other sites. That’s mostly because of KSA’s work and reffing pressures.

    We could definitely use some help with getting that up and running again… UNLESS there’s not a lot of value in it.

    What do you guys think?

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 39) : Salmo, the thought of Kankowski playing against us scares the SHIT out of me. Ruan as well, especially if he went to join an Aussie team where they were prepared to invest in him correctly and nurture his genius – not like this lot who call him “kak” every time he misses a kick at goal.

    I wonder if he was kak when he nailed that injury time conversion against the Crusaders in 2007…

  • On a different note: What does the “Cauldron” symbolises:

    Is it literally : Captain in the Hot Pot / Potjie pot?

    Or is it something else? Like this :dead warriors could be put into the cauldron and would be returned to life, save that they lacked the power of speech. It was suspected that they lacked souls. These warriors could go back into battle until they were killed again.

    Or witchcraft connotation? Or in legend, a cauldron is purported to be where leprechauns keep their treasure.

    Or scrying (a method of divining the future)??
