IRB Junior Champs: Boks (42) vs Ireland (26) F/T

The Baby Boks take on Ireland in their second match of the 2011 IRB Junior World Championship which takes place in Treviso tonight, with kick off at 20h10 South African time, which will be televised on SuperSport.

The team sees nine changes from the squad that faced Scotland in the opening game of the tournament, which the Boks won 33 – 0. This is expected as the matches are quite close together and this gives all the members of the squad a chance to get some game time. The strongest possible match 22 will be required when they face England in the last of their pool matches.

The Natal interest in the backline, Paul Jordaan, has been demoted to the bench to allow Bradley Moolman a chance to play at outside centre, while Nic Schonert also sees himself on the bench. Ex-Glenwood boy John Roy Jenkinson gets to start this match after coming from the bench in the game against Scotland.

We wish the team all the best for their match tonight.

South Africa – Ulrich Beyers, Courtnall Skosan, Bradley Moolman, Francois Venter, Wandile Mjekevu, Johan Goosen, Lohan Jacobs, Arno Botha (c), Cornell du Preez, Nizaam Carr, Eben Etzebeth, Ruan Venter, John Roy Jenkinson, Micheal van Vuuren, Stephan Kotze.

Replacements: Bongi Mbonambi, Nic Schonert, Jean Cook, Siyamthanda Kolisi, Pieter Rademan, John Welthagen, Paul Jordaan

  • can’t wait to see Jorries Jordaan rip them a new one when he comes on in the second half… hopefully in place of Wynand Venter

  • what was you thoughts on the sharks players in the team last week?

    me personally , i think at TH Schonert was brilliant , extremely strong chap

    Kleinhans at 6 i thought too had a brilliant match making big tackles and winning a few balls

    at 13 i thought Paul Jordaan was unlucky as every move he either got skipped or the inside players cut inwards, thus all he could do was tackle tackle and tackle

  • Will watch this game later. See Jordaan is on the bench. Pity, would liked to have seen him have another game.

    @sharks_lover (Comment 10) : Agree, the inside centre and fh played as if Jordaan was not even on the field. He got skipped most of the time. Now was hoping he would get another chance, not to be, see he is on the bench. Pity.

  • @sharks_lover (Comment 16) : Yes I did. Now wonder why he is also on the bench? You think this coach just not taking Ireland serious, trying others out? I would have kept a settled team that beat the Scots.

    Anyhow, we sure do have some good young talent coming through.

  • Scotland saved by a strange call from the ref.

    England knock 10m from Scottish line on the near side of the field.
    Adv Scotland

    Scotland get the ball back but knock on almost at the same ruck. England get the ball and with about 4 passes get it to the far side of the field and as they are about to score get called back for “No advantage, scrum Scotland for the 1st knock”

  • Referee gives both captains a chance to speak to their teams regarding constant little infringements, if it continues he will have to take it to the next level he says.

    hehehe was that a tackle by jordaan :mrgreen: :lol: his face went straight into the bush hehehe…..and francois venter had a good game i nearly broke my tv when we had an overlap and he decided to kick he is calss at 12….
    Skosan was disapointing also the hooker Micheal van Vuuren is not better than mbonambi…i expect to see juan schoeman back at prop again…the front row struggled today…

  • @Megatron (Comment 123) : I agree with the first 2, Etzebeth and Carr were terrific. I thought du Preez had his moments. Jury still out on F. Venter. With the ball in hand, I’m still not convinced he makes the best decisions or has good lateral vision. I try to visualise Heimar Williams in place of Venter, getting the same good quality ball and I believe HW would have done a lot more for the team.

  • @Ben (Comment 135) : That Irish winger Conway was really good. I like the way the clubs coach up their backs to be illusive in close contact. Saw the same thing with the England u18 last year. If you can stay on your feet for just a second longer, it’s often the difference between another phase and a turnover.

    To be fair to Paul, the try was already a certainty whether or not he made the tackle.

  • @Muzi (Comment 146) : I agree Muzi. Once upon a time 7s was helpful to developing a young players passing, catching and awareness skills. Now the skills you learn there don’t seem to benefit you that much and you lose out on valuable 15 man rugby development time in the process.

    Sadly my feeling remains that if you’re a good centre coming out of school, the best place you can go to is the WP

    I also feel that some guys shouldn’t be fast-tracked. They will get there anyway. Just have to be more patient with some guys. Sias has had far less 1st class game time than Robert, but it’s not that noticeable. A guy like Coenie O has been thrown in the deep end. People expect him to be the best scrumager around, meanwhile a player like Julian White only reached his prime in his late 20s but was still regarded as one of the world’s best props for about 4 years from that point onwards.

  • they should try Venter at 13 with Jordaan at 12…

    Can’t help feeling they’re wasting Paul’s time a bit here… playing him out of position at13 , then sending him on at wing… Must say, though, I’ve seen little to suggest that he’s going to be a Currie Cup player in 2011, but perhaps that’s unfair given that he’s had zero game time in his regular position.

    Wow, but that Nizam Carr is one hell of a player. Don’t think I’ve ever seen hands like that on a loose forward.

    @Ben (Comment 141) :

    It was about 6m from the tryline (probably more) and against the touchline and he just slipped off the guy’s back. A good tackle around the waist or upper legs would have seen the guy forced into touch. Instead he was like water on a duck’s back.

    If we are to pay any attention to the hype around the guy then he should deliver.

  • @robdylan (Comment 160) : Agreed, but Jordaan got there with enough time to perform the tackle he just didn’t perform it properly.

    If he hadn’t got there I would have had no problem with that as he was marking more than 1 man and the overlap was huge, but he got there and then didn’t tackle.

    Maybe I’m being a little harsh on the guy but if you are good enough to get there then use the oppertunity when you are there.

  • I must say that watching the bokkies play is really great. It is such good, clean and flowing rugby that you cant help but enjoy every second. Some stand out performances last night must include the play of Ulrich Beyers, Francois Venter, Arno Botha, Nizaam Carr and Eben Etzebeth. Watchout for these guys in the future. Especially Francois Venter. I quite enjoyed the way he played the last 2 games.

  • Its a pity they only played Paul Jordaan from the bench last night. I though he had a great game against Scotland on Friday. Did a lot of the hard work on defence and hit the rucks to slow down the ball. At age 19 he is something for the sharks to protect for the future.
