Worst Springbok team ever – have your say

As you all may or may not know, the authors and admins behind the scenes here at Sharksworld never stop talking, whether discussing certain author’s lack of hair or discussing a certain rugby match, we talk a lot. This weekend, we stumbled upon a rather humorous topic, which was to make up a team of the worst ever Springboks.

This might seem a bit tedious at first, but as soon as you start putting that memory into overdrive, the names that you come up with will shock you into another blood group. So to allow you all to share in this topic, I have decided to share my own team of rather below average players to don the Green and Gold, and allow you to select your own team.

Have fun!

My team: 1. Wessel Roux, 2. Dale Sandton, 3. Etienne Fynn, 4. Geo Cronje, 5. Quinton Davids, 6. Luke Watson, 7. Hendro Scholtz, 8. Solly Tyibilika, 9. Dave von Hoesslin, 10. Gaffie du Toit, 11. Khaya Malotana, 12. Jorrie Muller, 13. Danie van Schalkwyk, 14. Dean Hall, 15. Ricardo Laubsher.

  • Worst loose trio

    6 Stegman
    7 Keegan
    8 Spies

    I’d take Richard”s loose trio any day rather than the one I wrote here.

  • Gaffie was never a good Springbok, but I thought he was a pretty good player with loads of potential that never had the mentality to recover from some bad coaching and selecting decisions.

  • Guys, Kuun was never a Bok.

    And did Lobberts actually make his test debut?? I don’t think he did.

    I’m surprised no one mentioned the Tiger WOods of rugby>> Earl Rose!

    Bevin Fortuin and Earl Rose have to be in that squad too.

    The loose forwards should be reshuffled and Luke Watson should definitely be replaced with Pierre Spies.

    Derick Hougaard deserves a bench-spot at the very least.

  • Eddie Andrews was way worse than Ettiene Fynn. Robbie Fleck couldn’t tackle and his one off sidestep wasn’t fair compensation. Should get a mention. Louis Koen was a shocker. But then Meyer Bosman wasn’t a great bok either.
