There are some injury enforced changes in the team to face New Zealand, with Gerhard Mostert getting his test debut for Flip van der Merwe and Pat Lambie coming in at fullback to cover for Gio Aplon.

Other changes see Ashley Johnson dropped to the bench with Danie Rossouw moving to 8th man, and Jean Deysel coming in at 7. Wynand Olivier is also moved to the bench with Juan de Jongh and Adi Jacobs taking the 12 and 13 jersey’s respectively.

Deon Stegmann has been given another chance in what seems a much more balanced loose trio, while Ruan Pienaar and Morne Steyn have another opportunity to find their balance and form a stronger partnership. Odwa Ndugane comes onto the bench to provide cover at wing and fullback.

Team for Saturday:
15. Patrick Lambie, 14. Bjorn Basson, 13. Adi Jacobs, 12. Juan de Jongh, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Morne Steyn, 9. Ruan Pienaar, 8. Danie Rossouw, 7. Jean Deysel, 6. Deon Stegmann, 5. Alistair Hargreaves, 4. Gerhardt Mostert, 3. Werner Kruger, 2. John Smit, 1. Dean Greyling

Replacements:
16. Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17. CJ van der Linde, 18. Ryan Kankowski, 19. Ashley Johnson, 20. Charl McCleod, 21. Wynand Olivier, 22. Odwa Ndugane

  • I agree, there’s improvement…

    Now if Ruan Pienaar moves and passes quicker…and if the ball reaches JdJ…then we’ll do better than we did last Saturday.

    We need a better performance from the front row as well…

  • Better team but our backline is so much smaller than the NZ’s backline. It’s going to be a long day at the office for the centre’s I fear.

  • Much better team. Glad to see Deysel getting a start. He was one of the better players last week and got over the advantage line. Would have prefered to see Lambie at 10 but 15 is an improvement from the bench. GO BOKKE!!!

  • Like it or not these 22 guys are selected to represent our country in a test match! I will back them all the way and reserve judgement for after the game as should everyone else as I can promise you that all those people criticising could not do better! Give them hell guys and i hope we knock a few chunks out of the All Black armour!

  • SharonvanWyk: PdV has heard your cries for 3DPat :grin:

    On 1DMorne: ‘Some tough decisions will have to be made before the World Cup and for him [Steyn], as for any of the players on the park on Saturday, it might be a last chance or the chance or the only chance, so we hope he can rediscover the form that made him so invincible in 2009,’ said De Villiers.

    on 3DPat:
    ‘Patrick has a chance to showcase his talent. I’m very excited to see him in the team because he is not only talented but he is the future of rugby in South Africa,’ he said.

    Backline coach Dick Muir agreed with De Villiers’ sentiments. He [Lambie] is an incredibly versatile player, he can play a number of different positions and he has had a taste of test rugby and he has come out on the right side,’ Muir said. ‘He’s a lovely kid, he’s well balanced and he has all the skills needed to be a world-class player.’

    They are they paid professionals if they don’t do the job expected from the they should except any criticism directed to them.

  • @Letgo (Comment 41) : I do get your point, and im not saying dont ever criticise. But rather after the game than before when they havnt even got onto the field. By all means if they play and cock it up judge them on that. But dont judge them on past performances and say they crap this weekend.

  • If Ruan Pienaar has a good skip pass our backline may just fire this coming weekend :mrgreen: .

    Seriously though, really hoping Lambie joins the backline as he did in the Bull’s game.

    And for Megatron’s enjoyment I offer up the following: Keegan should have been there instead of Steggman :twisted:
