Boks for Tri Nations opener announced

The Bok team for the Castle Tri Nations opener against Australia has been announced, with three run on debuts for Ashley Johnson, Werner Kruger and Dean Greyling, while Charl McLeod might earn his off the bench.

Sharks hooker John Smit will earn his 103rd test cap as he leads the side and he’ll have another Bok captain in Johann Muller joining him in the second row. The rest of the pack has a distinctly light blue tint, with props Greyling and Kruger, lock Flip van der Merwe and flanks Deon Stegmann and Danie Rossouw all Bulls players. Only Johnson, named to make his first start at number 8, adds a little Cheetahs flair to the mix and his selection, one feels, is well deserved after a strong Super Rugby campaign.

The backline has an experienced look to it, with Ruan Pienaar and Morne Steyn old friends in the 9 and 10 jerseys respectively. There’s continuity in the 10-12 channel as well, with Steyn’s Bulls teammate Wynand Olivier offered yet another opportunity to prove that he might actually be a test-quality player. Juan de Jongh, Lwazi Mvovo and Bjorn Basson complete the three-quarter line and while all three are low on test caps, they have all been in fine form in Super Rugby and won’t let the side down. Gio Aplon is at fullback in what should be an exciting, attacking back three.

Sharks fans will be pleased to see that the bench is pretty much all black-and-white, with five Durban players looking to improve the side when they come on in the second half! Apart from potential debutant McLeod, Jean Deysel, Al Hargreaves, Adi Jacobs and Pat Lambie all stand to add to their respective test cap tallies, while CJ van der Linde and Chilliboy Ralepelle add some experience as well.

The Boks have overtaken Australia in second place on the IRB rankings, following their hosts’ alarming loss to Samos at the weekend. They’ll want to maintain that position by winning in Sydney.

15. Gio Aplon, 14. Bjorn Basson, 13. Juan De Jongh, 12. Wynand Olivier, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Morne Steyn, 9. Ruan Pienaar, 8. Ashley Johnson, 7. Danie Rossouw, 6. Deon Stegmann, 5. Johann Muller, 4. Flip van der Merwe, 3. Werner Kruger, 2. John Smit (Captain), 1. Dean Greyling

16. Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17. CJ van der Linde, 18. Alistair Hargreaves, 19. Jean Deysel, 20. Charl McCleod, 21. Adi Jacobs, 22. Pat Lambie

  • this team can go all the way, very nice backline except for Morne “kick everything” Steyn. That backline with Lambie at 10 and Adi at 12 would have been very very exciting.

  • If i look at each player individually then it looked a fairly decent side. But there are new combinations everywhere, from the front row,locks,loosies,half backs,centres and even the back 3! Im just not sure of this team is going to gel..or how long it will take to gel! The Aussie side looks pretty good! But its make or break time for some of these players!

  • 9 players return from the bok 22 that beat England last year… that’s actually better than I thought it would be.

    I’m worried about that loose trio, to be honest. Tight five also looks pretty green, but let’s see how they go. Don’t be surprised if Greyling does on to become something of a legend in the green and gold. Really rate that chap.

    But this is the future of the Springboks and I have faith that the guys will compete well under the guidance of one or two legends…

    Go Bokke! Do it for Madiba!

  • Excited to see a Bokke game again! Even if it is a ‘second’ side. If you look at it player-by-player, in regards to who these guys are ‘replacing’( Johnson vs. Spies as an example ), seems quite good.

  • What a pity Lambie is on the bench. Would have liked to have seen JdJ at 12 and Adi on at 13. With Morne and Olivier doubt JdJ will see any ball.

    Also not sure why the heck Stegmann is there :???: He hardly played well for the Bulls and mostly gives away penalties. Would rather have seen Deysel at 6.

    Anyhow if this team can keep possession and not kick everything away, we could put the Aussies under pressure.

    Doubt this side can play the kick and chase game. We do that we gonna get a thrashing.

    If you are talking out and out fetching ability I might agree but Keegan is a much better player all round.

    Anyway you’re just fishing! :grin:

  • @Megatron (Comment 80) : Keegan has proved beyond doubt lately that he is a great 8th man, its been pointed out numerous times on this blog. Him and Ashley in the same loose trio would be less than ideal.

  • @Megatron (Comment 80) : I think Keegan’s Man-of-the-Match trophies speak a little louder than your troll comments, ol’ chap.

  • @Franshark (Comment 35) : Why not give Lambie a go at 12? He played well last year in that position in the short time he was their in the Currie Cup and I am sure he will not let his team down. Since Morne will probably only ever pass straight to his inside at least he will have someone their who can be creative with the ball, unlike Olivier.

    Steyn-Lambie-De Jongh sounds a lot better than Steyn-Olivier-De Jongh to be honest.

    Steggman selection still baffling… Kanko could also have played in the No8 jersey with Johnson shifting to flank. That would speed up the loose trio quite a bit and it would be competitive.

    Let’s see what they can do though…
