    AC you gave guys a second chance and they screwed it up. Give the guys who won the game and looked hungry to win the opportunity to represent the boks with pride.

  • Much like Robs article. I don’t have much to say about this bok team. Wait and see is my motto for now. Very bland. I must say one thing, in my mind Whiteley should be the starting player for most games he has the intelligence for the modern game. Maherbe and Louw don’t seem to be the quality we need. De Allende seems to be impact more than anything else. Personally I think the all rounder Keegan Daniel needs a call up. He will provide fire.

  • With thor and whitely possibly both out for the 3rd test the suggestions for a number 8

    best options would be Carr, nonthe or maybe shift kolisi to 8 the played well there before

    I wouldnt play a half fit whitely

    8 carr 7 kolisi 6 kriel

    louw on the bench

    psdt could help out at blindside if needed in the game

You need to soften up the Irish defense in the first half and retain the ball.

  • The first 60min was the same timid Boks we saw last week. Its very concerning that a Bok team coming out at Ellis Park isnt fired up and aggressive. The last 60 with Whiteley and Combrinck the catalysts the Boks speed of play and aggression significantly improve their play and also made the Irish look poor. The only reason DeAllende broke that last tackle was because the Irish were struggling to keep up with the pace and aggression of the Boks attack. Im not sure what changes if many will be made but surely Combrinck will need to start. Id probably bring in Notshe for Kolisi too to up the pace. Hopefully Whiteley is fit to start too. I see Lambie ruled out of the 3rd test

Maybe Notshe for Vermeullen, but where would that leave Whitely?

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 219) : Ok I see, did not realise he may be injured

    @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 220) : Lwazi was beyond terrible on Saturday, he was extremely poor and I think Ireland have shown the rest of the world how to attack him best. To be honest, besides taking two high balls the previous week, he was also very poor in the first test, he ruined a certain try, with a two man overlap.

    Based on this last test, I am afraid that SA rugby seems to be in a deep dark hole. We must remember, 6 starting players for the Irish are not here, two flanks, flyhalf, both wings and fullback – and these just happen to be their best players, could you imagine it was us missing 6 of our best.

    Our pack seems weak, we are getting thumped by the Irish in the scrum and they are mauling us at will. Are we really the power house we believe we are? Up to now, I can only comment on two tests and what I have seen, but Coetzee is not getting the best out of the players. He said there would be consequence for poor showing, now is the time to prove it. I am hoping to see whole sale changes to this side, with the likes of Marx ( bench ), Kriel, Mostert Combrink Whiteley ( all to start ) And as much as I sang Jantjies praises during Super Rugby, he is not delivering at test level, bring in Goosen.

    Thank heavens we were not playing the ABS, Aussies or England this test series, it would have been beyond embarrassing.

  • @Zibbie (Comment 228) : I went with speed in the pack (barring front 3). I just felt that the Irish struggled when the tempo was picked up by the Boks so the more mobile locks and loose trio can really pick up the tempo. Then once run ragged there is the bulk off the bench which will be hard to stop late on when bodies are tired.

  • All poloitics aside, picking the best side for Saturday assuming the 3 in doubt are available I’d go with:

    1. Beast 2. Strauss 3. Redelinghuis 4. Etzebeth, 5. Mostert 6. Kriel 7. PSDT 8. Whiteley 9. DeKlerk 10. Jantjies 11. Combrinck 12. DeAllende 13. Kriel14. JPP 15. Willie Subs: Kitshoff, Mbonambi, Nyakane, , Lood, Vermuelen, Paige, Steyn, Mapoe

    I’d also give Jantjies a limited time to impress. If he’s not going to get us running (as he is touted to do) I’d bring on Steyn. Jantjies poor kicking form is putting us under to much pressure without the positive trade off of a devastating running game. It may be unfair to judge him as the game plan may not suit him but if he can’t deliver the game plan select someone who can. This is probably harsh on Mapoe but Kriel needs to be given a chance to showcase his talent, Mapoe hasn’t done anything great so lets see if Kriel can.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 226) : Having Kriel , Notshe and Whiteley as your loose trio sounds good in theory but I don’t think it will work . You’re sacrificing too much weight at international level for a loose trio . Think they should go with either Kriel / notshe at 6 with whiteley at 8 and a heavier guy at 7 like PSDT or Kolisi or even Vermeulen .It would be a really exiting loose trio ( having Notshe,Kriel and Whitely) but we would battle in scrums and defending mauls etc. where pure weight is needed.

Kolisi is surprisingly only 104 kg so I was wrong with him but there’s a clear wheight difference between PSDT ,Vermeulen and Kriel ,Notshe . Even Willem Alberts wheighs 120 Kg which could be a option at openside and then having a lighter but more skillfull Kriel/Notshe and Whitley at 6 and 8

  • @schrodingers cat (Comment 239) : Ah ok. Interesting to see what the weights are of the NZ and OZ loose trio? I get that we need some bulk and grunt but at the moment that isnt helping us at all. So perhaps its time to try the quicker and lighter guys as the Irish seemed to struggle when the pace was upped but seemed very comfortable tackling the big slower guys.

  • @schrodingers cat (Comment 245) : Kaino just there for weight?? You must be joking. He is one of, if not the best loose forward in the world. Reid is also not a small man, 110kg is big.

    @SheldonK (Comment 254) : I agree with you on the side of pace. To me, size is not overly important, as long as the flank is strong enough to make the yards over the advantage line.

    Take the best loose forward who ever played the game, R Mccaw, by no means the biggest, actually, not nearly the biggest, but he was brutal, tough and extremely explosive – not all about how much you weigh. Ask yourself this, would Vermeulen have been able to score the try which Whitely scored?? Rugby is ever evolving and to me, it looks like the lighter, more explosive player is currently winning.

Then i look at the lighter guys and how they just seem to combine better and play at a higher tempo which the Irish seemed to struggle with. For me as you say its about strength and power more than just weight. We have tried the heavier guys…lets try up the tempo massively in the last game and even if we go PSDT at 7 id play Kriel and Whiteley with him. Although if we want to pick on form id play Kriel, Notshe, Whiteley with Mostert and PSDT at lock. Thats speed from 4 to 8.

I can’t imagine him or Duane being able to sidestep and attack space as much as a Whitley/Notshe/kriel can. They are more fond of using there momentum to get over A-line. Saying his only there for his weight doesn’t mean his a bad player he could arguably be one of the best looseforwards in the world

  • My 2 cents… you need all of the above. Rugby is a game where you need a diverse bunch of players. Having a crash ball carrier and a fast space finder and a pilferer is the best loosie combination IMO. It gives you options, makes the side unpredictable and extremely difficult to defend against. Against a well oiled defence fancy footwork doesn’t work alone. The aus vs eng game seemed to show this happen for 80 minutes.
    We were lucky to have PSDT crashing the ball up so well and puncturing holes in their def to let guys like Whitely just enough space to exploit.
    Unfortunately for the rest of the world ABs have had this type of balance for too long.

  • @50shadesofshark (Comment 262) : agreed! Don’t get me wrong about his skills but when he did crash it up he got the Boks forward momentum and forced Ireland def to go back and reshape.

    I’m also in no way suggesting he be moved to flank. Either our blindside flank / 8th man needs to be able to do what PSDT did.

  • @gregkaos (Comment 263) : He played 7 in 2012 when the u/20′s won the wc.

    I think his best position would be 7, frees him up to play a more mobile game.
