  • @Bokhoring (Comment 2) : AC heard he signed for the Sharks – made him a definite no-go.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 5) : It will be a bloodbath of epic proportions – won’t ever happen, lest AC is shown-up to be the rubbish coach he truly is.

    Would be fun though.

  • mvovo isnt the best winger, he hasnt eclipsed his best years. Kobus deserves to be with the boks. Combrink, de alende, du jonge are all returning from injury. serfontein shouldnt be there and Esterhuizen hurt his own chances with that ban. Happy for am.

  • @Dunx (Comment 8) : Combrinck did not even look like he just returned from injury – he was in red-hot form on Saturday

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 9) : He was playing the bulls, the blind team would be the turnstyles. The bulls are looking for 2 locks……………………………
    1 for the back gate and 1 for the front gate

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 14) : You mean he wants to make sure his son is eligible for England at some point – although the A-team does not count as far as I know

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 15) : ‘parrently they’re counting again – eligibility has changed (or will soon be changing) from u/20 back to SA-A

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 15) : Nah, just lamenting on him not being considered for either of the squads and I cant imagine his father pushing for him to be there. The England thing may not be so far off a thought though. Why the hell not keep your options open.

  • Not sure how much say Ackers had in the team selection but this is a proper SA A side, not the SA Barbarians side of last year. Maybe because WR changed the regulations that the Bok u20 side cannot be the designated second team anymore from 2018 they decided to re-institute a proper shadow Boks team
