  • @Ice (Comment 2) : I’m starting to think Wynand Olivier must have sold his soul to the devil at a crossroads at midnight; only rational explanation for hem still being in the reckoning (albeit remotely)

  • Some of these guys will have to hope for 3 injuries in a position before they get the call.

    Issuing this list is a bit of a waste of an exercise in my opinion. :oops:

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 6) : I suppose it’s a ‘sorry you just missed out’ list. Its not like these players are going to do anything different because they know they’re on the standby list.

  • 2 locks on stand bye for a Squad that has 3 locks and 2 loose forwards that can easily play lock. :roll:

    I actually think Greyling will become a fixture in the side in a few years.
    He is a goodie.

  • @robdylan (Comment 20) :

    I hear what you saying, my comment could be misinterpreted.

    It was meant as a compliment and indicated that Chadwick could be a Bok one day..

  • @Ben (Comment 13) : Yip as someone has already said, this is a consolation list so that we don’t have players doing the “Hosea Gear” and announcing that they are now open overseas options.

    Even with THAT being the criterea for the list there is a name or 2 on there that shouldn’t be there.
