  • The WP boys have been saying they would prefer to see Frans Steyn inside of JDV. That’s just sick man.

  • Frans will in all likelihood be at outside centre on defence and inside centre on attack. I can see a lot of inter-changing!!

  • With Frans on the field our kicking will be covered… I’m therefore hoping we take the lead early on so that Lambie can come on early in place of Morne.

    Lambie needs the exposure and Morne needs the rest.

  • I’m happy with this team, would still have loved to see a few guys be given a chance, none the less, I’m looking forward to a competent game by the Boks and more game time for Lambie and Keegan or Alberts.

  • @wpw (Comment 12) : Remember those wins against Australia and New Zealand he secured with that very same ‘unreliable’ boot?

    I have it on good authority that he actually has been practicing his kicking since that 2007 final.

  • @Letgo (Comment 15) : Imagine a backline with Lambie, Frans Steyn & Juan de Jongh… and then through Aplon in the mix… all players that play what’s in front of them.

    I reckon we’d even give the Wallaby backline a go in the “talent” stakes.

  • I just hope Keegs get more gametime. He really deserves it. Very worried that Hilda is going to pull another over Keegs, just like what happened to Shaun Sowerby. Get 1 test cap…… And can’t play for another country, like France, where he is an absolute hero. :oops: :oops:

  • This is a very capable team and we should be good for the win.

    Having a dozen frontline players out and still manage a team like this ..we are sitting pretty imo.

    If I have to find fault I’d have Mvovo on the bench. Although Basson didn’t really put a foot wrong I felt he didn’t look to get involved a bit more and was guilty on the odd occasion of ball watching.

    It being he’s debut I guess he can be forgiven.Its also paramount that if Alberts is fit , he is on the bench.One of the most exciting appearances for me in a longtime in the Green and Gold.

  • i am quite happy with the team. the tight five is pretty much the first choice.
    you can have an argument whether john should not be a first choice hooker due to his captaincy and I think he is valuable as such. Matfield sometimes gets irritated with refs and I think it is to the prejudiceof the team.

    loosies – fine. would have kankowski instead of spies though. or actually alberts can play 8 if fit.

    would swop 12 and 13 or put steyn as 15 and benched aplon.
