  • @robdylan (Comment 5) : Ag no Rob, I thought you`d motivate me?!

    They`ve got our number in every single position at the moment, except 9.

    If it`s a sell out crowd we should get some sort of advantage there as well. . .

    I dunno . . . looks like a hard ask any which way you look at the situation. :shock:

    In hindsight I should`ve put it under a bok thread hey?

  • @Original Pierre (Comment 9) :

    Yeah!! ;-)

    Wrt your comment about Rory having Ruan Snyman’s number??

    I don’t agree. I think that Rory was pretty average last week whereas Snyman was quite decent and his clearance at ruck time was superb!!

  • @Original Pierre (Comment 7) : it’s not that bad actually… they’ve got us properly covered in the front row, but our locks are better than theirs. In terms of experience, the loose trios are about the same. Van Veltze impresses me not at all, but he understands their game and knows how to play it. Steggman and Kuun are simply better as a combo than keegan and botes are, though, cos they understand each other and make sure the job gets done. Keegan leaves Botes to do all the donkey work while he stuffs around making clever flip passes in the backline.

    McLeod is a better scrummie than Snyman (due to experience), while JLP edges Meyer.

    They have the benefit of a centre combo that knows each other FLIPPING well, having played together for years. We have a makeshift midfield, but Lambie could come off in a big way.

    Back 3s are also even. Mametsa and Shadow v Mvovo and Pietersen…. Jaco v Ludik.

    I reckon we have the better players in the back three, but probably not as good at the moment form-wise

  • @Original Pierre (Comment 16) : he seems to have calmed down

    Apart from Mametsa, though, the Bulls do have a relatively inexperienced 3/4 line

  • but serioulsy, though. the back 3 doesn’t matter. If we turn over ball like we did against Griquas, we are finished… it wouldn’t matter if the bulls had picked Wynie Strydom and Steve Hofmeyr on the wing

  • @Megatron (Comment 19) : I can tell you the words out of our mouths in Cape Town at the time was a lot worse than Poeph*l. . .

    You remember the Newlands crowd stopped with the Luke boo-ing after that match as well… Suddenly united again against the common enemy :razz:

  • honestly thoug, if the shark keep ball in hand & spread it wide often enough, they may capitalise on stephan dippenaar’s shoddy defence, van den heever too is no brickwall.

    Last time I checked Coetzee was coaching the side. Rassie is DOR now and doesn’t coach the team!
    He doesn’t even attend every coaching session!

  • @Clayton(PJLD) (Comment 32) : I dunno hey, its decision making that’s his biggest problem, thats not really something you learn. Maybe its just a confidence thing, but geez Hoffman looked so much better last Sat. Fondse had to fall over to get his try, great little build up from Hoffman.

    Would love Hoff and Cronje to get alot more time on the park than last weekend.

    Hey Mols!

    Just a thought: If Hoffman does get more opportunities I’m afraif Ricky is gonna struggle to get his place back (on the bench I mean) :twisted:

    He will have to step up big time and have a brilliant Tri Nations if he wants to be first choice again!!

  • @wpw (Comment 37) : Well then, for the greater good (Bokke), we need him to start alot of WP/Stormer games or at least come off the bench. Keep his fitness up, and then next year CC he may be gone.

    Just don’t know how we’ll keep him motivated to perform at provincial level, he must know by now he’s definately going to the WC, so he may rest on his laurels again.
