  • @50shadesofshark (Comment 139) : Ja I’m onboard with that. Need lambie tactical boot on 10 and an intuitive player like venter inside Mapoe. Willie and Combrinck give us enough options with the boot. Jantjies on impact. Need someone who can keep up with faf. He kind of gets himself isolated quite frequently. Pollard will also give us an extra option at 12 when he is ready again.

  • @Spirit of Rugby (Comment 142) : Jantjies for me still not too great with pressure. Goosen def an option at 15 he had been doing well there. We must get Mapoe a creative inside who is also a good distributor. Good news is we have many options. We must however adress scrumhalf. We need a proper backup for faf someone who can introduce a different style to Faf. The AB will read him and find a way to neutralize then we must be able to keep them guessing.

  • Mapoe has been bad. He was selected as 13. That’s his position. He must own it. This excuse by people that his bad form is because of De Allende is bullshit. He was selected on his own not as a pair. I was calling for his inclusion to the Boks since last year but I see now that I was wrong and Meyer was right.

Looking at their games before this I can see they haven’t been firing on all cylinders. What does it mean for us? RD is only a month and a half away and they won’t have time together So AC will go with combos he picked in this test series, and to me, those combos are still not there.

  • @sudhir (Comment 150) : I think combos are important. De Allende clicked with his WP outside centre de Jongh. Mnisi and Mapoe obviously have an understanding. The same with Thompson/Muir, Bunce/Little, Horan/Little….

    Considering how little time Coetzee had to prep the team, he should have picked in-form combinations. Any idiot can see that De Allende’s game has taken a massive dive so to pick him as Mapoe’s partner, who is the standout 13 in SA in the Lions setup, wasn’t exactly brilliant by Coetzee.

    Just for interest I’m sure in soccer it works in competitions so if a player is suspended for a couple of games in UEFA competition he’s allowed to play in other competitions like International games or English Premier league and his suspension will only take effect in the next UEFA game, similarly if he’s suspended in say the Premier league he can play in UEFA competitions and will only miss the next Premier league game(s). Maybe time rugby take a look at it and also implement it.

    Reinach at the Lions under Ackerman would be a very different player to the kickbot he’s been turned into at the Sharks and Boks.
