  • I can’t select a team of the week when I only saw half the teams play and most of the players usually gets selected from the winning teams…that makes it only a 1/4 of the players that played. But this one seems right. :smile:

    Maybe the Cheetahs? He is quite talented! Anyone know how old he is?

  • @robdylan (Comment 26) : I’m sure his tries were amazing, and he probably deserves to be there, just saying there might be double standards when you cant compare players due to not seeing all of them

  • Basson a try-scoring machine

    2010-08-25 22:30
    Hendrik Cronjé

    Bloemfontein – Griquas, who appear on
    course for a semifinal spot in this year’s
    Currie Cup, look set to break a try-scoring
    record on the way.

    Springbok wing Bjorn Basson needs only
    two tries in the second round of the
    tournament to equal the late Robert
    Markram ’s Griquas record of 11 tries in a
    Currie Cup season.

    Basson has scored nine tries in seven
    games to date and can take another step
    closer to the record in the match against
    the Sharks in Durban on Friday night.

    Rugby statistics are often misleading as
    they don ’t always tell the full story. But
    Griquas backline coach Abré Minnie makes
    the point that the nine tries by Basson is
    certainly not a misleading statistic on the
    wing ’s attacking ability.

    Basson’s nine tries are two more than that
    of Sharks flyer Lwazi Mvovo, followed by
    five each by Pumas flyhalf Elgar Watts,
    Leopards scrumhalf Michael Bondesio,
    Sharks loose forward Keegan Daniel, WP
    flanker Pieter Louw and Free State prop
    Coenie Oosthuizen.

    “Bjorn has not just scored his tries by using
    his pace, but by popping up in the right
    positions and running good lines.

    He has
    now matured as a player after I identified
    him as a future Springbok at under-21
    level, ” said Minnie.

    He adds that Basson had to do more than
    just finish for the majority of his nine tries.

    “His extraordinary individual skills came to
    the fore in a number of the tries and he
    had to work hard. His strong defence and
    physical presence at the breakdowns is the
    pleasing aspect of his game this year – it’s
    something we have worked at very hard,”
    said Minnie.

    “Bjorn is one of the best aerial players (to
    pluck the ball out of the air from in front of
    an opponent) and opponents are making
    plans to neutralise him every week so that
    he cannot compete for kicks. The pleasing
    thing is that Bjorn then himself hatches a
    plan to counter that. ”

    Minnie also has no doubt that Basson has
    the pace to make it at Test level.

    “He showed that in the game against the
    Blue Bulls when he scored that try in the
    dying seconds. He beat Gerhard van den
    Heever for pace. ”

  • @frikkie se broer (Comment 30) : Basson and Mvovo would be a much better bet in the Bok team at the moment than Habana.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 31) : I agree, Habana seems to have completely forgotten (and not suddenly, since he’s been doing this for ages now) what the phrase ‘defensive line’ actually means… Don’t get me wrong, Habana is a legend and his experience is telling – he’s just off the boil (as most of our senior Boks are) and perhaps a fresh face with Habana’s pace would be a good thing for the Boks. Especially since we don’t have Aplon at the back – who may have depended on Habana’s experience to assist him in his positional play – but Frans; this could allow for a less experienced winger to be experimented with. But who are we kidding, creative experimentation demands imagination and half a point for an IQ – and PdV has neither.

    Wow! All of those words just to agree Pokkel – I guess I have some pent-up frustration to deal with.

    I also agree with my son though, Richard and Rob, there must be some concrete visible proof of a player’s performance that all have access to in order to include them in a “team of the week”. reputations and journalist’s reports may be of value, but they only go so far and we all know how unreliable most reputations are, not to mention the reliability of our journalists ;-)
