Bok Ratings for Wales test

South Africa scored a deserved 34-31 win over Wales in Cardiff on Saturday, with the scratch team taking control in the second half.

Despite being disrupted by injury withdrawals and the Butch James saga, they withstood some early pressure – trailing 14-16 at the break – to come back and dominate after the break.

A late two-try rally – scores in the 73rd and 76th minutes – saw Wales close the gap to four points.

Jan de Koning of Rugby 365 rates the Springbok players!

15 Frans Steyn:
He was the usual mixed bag, some great moments and a collection of errors. Slotted a crucial long-range penalty midway through the second half.
6/10

14 Gio Aplon:
Good debut, chased hard and did not do much wrong. Not too many chances on attack.
6/10

13 Jaque Fourie:
Again showed his value and experience, especially on defence, where he kept the big Welsh runners in check.
7/10

12 Juan de Jongh:
Awesome debut. Did nothing wrong on defence and scored a great try. Great future await this young man.
8/10

11 Odwa Ndungane:
He lasted 30-odd minutes and was injured in a ridiculously cheap shot while scoring the Boks’ first try.
5/10

10 Ruan Pienaar:
He looked more at ease in the No.10 jersey than in previous games in Green and Gold. Maybe he is growing into the role.
6/10

9 Ricky Januarie:
A real mixed bag – some good steals, strong defence and a string of silly penalties – which detracted from what was otherwise a good performance.
5/10

8 Joe van Niekerk:
Clearly enjoyed being back in the Bok fold and produced an accomplished performance.
6/10

7 Dewald Potgieter:
Showed what a great future he has ahead of him with a really strong performance.
7/10

6 François Louw:
Another class loose forward that shows the incredible depth South Africa has in this department.
6/10

5 Victor Matfield:
Still the world’s premier line-out forward. Looked a little jaded in the second half.
6/10

4 Danie Rossouw:
Masterful performance, certainly his best-ever showing as a Bok lock – strong carriers and good defence. Incredible workrate.
8/10

3 BJ Botha:
Was penalised early in the game at the scrums – but there were a number of strange calls by the referee. Became more forceful as the game wore on.
6/10

2 John Smit (captain):
Another accomplished performance, but spoiled his day by throwing a silly intercept pass.
5/10

1 CJ van der Linde:
Really strong in the scrums and a rock on defence. Showed how much he has gained from playing in Ireland.
7/10

Replacements:

16 Chiliboy Ralepelle (on for van der Linde, 74th min):
Not enough time to be rated.

17 Jannie du Plessis (on got Botha, 58th min):
Continued the strong work in the scrum and did not shirk his duties outside the set pieces.
6/10

18 Alistair Hargreaves (on for Rossouw, 76th min):
Not enough time to be rated.

19 Ryan Kankowski (on for Potgieter, 56th min):
Worked hard on defence and had one decent run.
6/10

20 Meyer Bosman:
Not used.

21 Zane Kirchner (on for Steyn, 76th min):
Not enough time to be rated.

22 Bjorn Basson (on for Ndungane, 34th min):
Very satisfactory debut. Some really good chasing and stood strong on defence.
6/10

  • What is with giving guys Caps in the 76th minute? :???:

    I’m glad for hargreaves getting a Bok Cap, but he will not get another until after the RWC unless we rest players in some other test in 2011 or we rest players against Italy. :sad:

    DAMN GOOD PLAYER AND I RATE HIM, but nobody should get a Bok cap just because he is in the squad.

  • Zane Definitely deserves to be rated! – Minus 5! Ricky January also way over rated..sorry but the bad just outways the the good by at least 3 to 1, and puts the entire team under way too much pressure. Pottas had to do the Menchanics work for him a couple of times – he is so slow.

    Typical PDV game plan of helter skelter, only when they got back to basics did they score points instead of give them away.
    But for a team that has only been together 5 days, not too bad.
    Weldone Bokke!.

  • Surely with FDP out the rest of the season it makes sense to put Ruan in at 9? PDV can’t realy be seriously considering putting the Mechanic in there against OZ and NZ…we will get slaughtered!

  • can,t believe someone posted f steyn should have been put at flyhalf ,he hasn,t had an extened run at flyhalf but from whats been seen of him at flyhalf he doesn,t have the vision and mentality for it leave him at fullback to gain ground kicking ,they all need to give on ruan playing flyhalf just let the guy play scrumhalf ,pdv is a idiot

  • @Pokkel (Comment 34) : considering that there were quite a few first caps and the combinations a bit rusty I think it was a good game. But pity about this last Wales try, which made it too close at the end.

    It was actually a tight game so PDivvy should not throw substitites at the end.

  • @rekinek (Comment 37) : I actually thought PDivvy miss-read the entire game… it was balanced on a knife edge at the end because of that. Only obvious that he would bring on the subs at the wrong time. What pulled us through was guts and determination from players who wanted to grab the chance given to them.

  • I like Hargreaves but I think he is lucky to have been capped for the Boks. If we look at the talent SA has at lock Hargeaves is probably not in the top 6 locks in SA behind Matfield, Bakkies Danie, Bekker, Sykes, Flip vd Merwe, Anton van Zyl?? , Fondse??
    I hope he proves to us in future that he deserves his place. Maybe PdV sees something I haven’t? Come-on Hargreaves prove he wrong!!! :cool:

  • Very interesting win from the Bok !

    Agree with most of the ratings only ones than i look slightly sideways at as a neutral are Rossouw and de Jong.

    I thought Roberts absolutely steam rolled de Jong and constantly put Wales on the front foot. I think that physical side of the game will be adopted against de Jong….with success.

    I was shocked that Roussouw received MOTM, he turned over the ball far too much for me, however he definitely had more in the tank than Matfield that may have made him look better.

    You have to worry for everyone when SA are at full strength.

    As for Grant, he definitely deserves a shot or at least to be involved with the Boks!!
    What I’m looking forward to seeing is who will start at 12 against France. Will it be De Jongh or Olivier?? :grin:

    I agree re: Chilli and to a certain extent Januarie.
    I believe we should support the team irrespective of who is selected as every single Bok coach has his favourites which at times doesn’t make sense.
    Remember how Jake selected Andre Snyman on the wing??
    He also persisted with Jacques Cronje when it was obvious there were better players available…

  • @wpw (Comment 64) : To me that’s the whole thing about supporting. You don’t have to agree with the selections, you can be vocal about them as much as you like, but come game day – or a conversation with a Welshman, Aussie or Englishman – you need to be rock solid behind the team and the players.

    I have never been a fan of Witrot aka Dewald Potgieter – and believe me there has to be better players at the moment – but he played like he wanted to be there.

    As for Gio and de Jongh… they have the potential of being crowd favourites just because of their underdog status and the fact that they are capable of moment of brilliance.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 65) : See now Hargreaves is an anomaly… He has great future potential BUT unlike the potential of a backline player, the potential of a forward needs to be worked on through hard slogging in the trenches… Its hard upfront.

    Hargreaves is being bled in… slowly. He’s 24. Smit wa 22 when he played his first test, Matfield was 24… see where this is going?

  • @SandTiger (Comment 70) : Ja…maybe…. let’s see ;-) but what about poor old Sykes. Selected on the Bok bench but never capped and has been playing consistantly good rugby for a couple of years now. I recon he deserves a Bok cap more than Hargeaves

  • Was I imagining things, but to me it seemed as if Frans Steyn was not too keen on putting his body on the line to secure loose ball.

  • Doppies???? nnnnnooooooooo! Years ago we had a flyhalf called Luke Smith, remember him? Good kicker, but not much in the upstairs department… Doppies is a workhorse, not a centre with a lot in the upstairs department… lets hope for a player like Jean de Villiers :)

  • @Ice (Comment 79) : I also did but this again proves my point…a 13 is only as good as his 12 allows him to be. Losing Barrit wasn’t only bad for the Sharks but also for Murray.

  • Do you guys remember the try he scored against the Blues in 2007 S14??
    I think Barrit played a role but Waylon lost a lot of confidence in himself imo.
    He is still young so hopefully he can still reach his potential…

  • Urm so according to IOL, Butch has been included in the squad for this weekend as well? Here we go again . . .

    Also it seems Snorre had some derogatory comments regarding Steyn ( our French boy Pokkel ), how can he say anything negative about Steyn when Crusty almost cost us a victory the second he ” Cart Wheeled ” on to the field :roll:

  • What the heck are Pdivvy and his cronnies thinking?

    How can they leave out Frans Steyn, allegedly for his lack of Super 14 gametime, but then include Chilliboy & Januarie who’ve had zero to no Super 14 gametime???

    And then he leaves out Francios Hougaard… who surely had a better Super 14 than Basson??

    And he’s selected 3 Inside centres, but only one outside centre?

  • Using Pdv’s logic… “The overseas based players are off the boil due to lack of Super 14 game-time.” I’m guessing then the entire French squad will be off the boil next weekend? Should be an easy weekend… :roll:

  • it is true the team is bigger than the player but if a player doesn,t want to play in a position and u keep jerking him around he moves to ireland because his discontent if ruan pienaar was given an extended run at scrumhalf he,d b on the same level as fourie dupreez and he hasn,t really adapted to flyhalf well enough to really justify selecting him infront of morne steyn or peter grant

  • @wpw (Comment 58) :

    The assessment of Zane as an idiot, is not just made on his 4 minutes of utter disaster, he’s a predictable player who I just do not rate at all. He reminds me of his predecessor Johan Botha. He does the job for the Bulls at Curry Cup level and at Super 14 level, but has been in my opinion unable to make the step up thus far. As things stand I think he’s being rated the best fullback simply due to a lack of general talent in the position. Sure there are guys like Lambie – who’s “up and coming”, but you still need someone solid at the back with preferebly a bit more experience than Lambie – and unfortunately the only guy in SA that fits that bill is Kirchner, sometimes having a guy like Percy Montgomery completely sucks, him retiring left a massive hole at the back and most our options there just don’t fill the gap.

    Perhaps “Idiot” was the wrong word – “talentless with a bad afro”, would have been a better description……
