As you will know, Heyneke Meyer will announce his Bok squad for the England series on Saturday night, after the Bulls and Stormers have kicked 7 shades of excrement out of each other at Loftus Vesveld.
I’m not going to claim any particular level of deep insight into his thinking, or anything, but given the injuries he’s been forced to contend with, a fair few of the selections are likely to be pretty simple to predict. Assuming that Meyer picks a squad of 32 for the 3 tests, here is my prediction of who will make the final cut.
Tell me where you think I’ve got it right or wrong, but let’s also revisit this thread after the official announcement to tally up how far off I was.
Beast Mtawarira, Dean Greyling, Bismarck du Plessis, Adriaan Strauss, Chilliboy Ralepelle, Jannie du Plessis, Werner Kruger, Flip van der Merwe, Eben Etzebeth, Juandre Kruger, Johann Muller, Heinrich Brussow, Marcell Coetzee, Willem Alberts, Pierre Spies, Keegan Daniel, Ryan Kankowski
Fourie du Preez, Ruan Pienaar, Francois Hougaard, Morne Steyn, Pat Lambie, Frans Steyn, Jean de Villiers, Juan de Jongh, Wynand Olivier, Bryan Habana, Lwazi Mvovo, JP Pietersen, Bjorn Basson, Gio Aplon, Zane Kirchner.
