Jantjies kicks Pollard down to the bench


Written by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring)

Posted in :The Rugby Championship on 6 Sep 2018 at 07:39

Jantjies gets another chance in the 10 jersey along the re-united centre pair of de Allende and Kriel. Kolbe will most likely make his debut off the bench.

Mbonambi starts in place of Marx who drops to the bench. Kitshoff starts and Beast drops to the bench, but Rassie has retained Malherbe at 3.

The loose trio looks a little more balanced with a bruiser in PSDT at 7 and Kolisi at 6. I am not sure if these guys will be able to compete with both Hooper and Pocock at the breakdowns.

Springboks:

15 Willie le Roux
14 Makazole Mapimpi
13 Jesse Kriel
12 Damian de Allende
11 Aphiwe Dyantyi
10 Elton Jantjies
9 Faf de Klerk
8 Warren Whiteley
7 Pieter-Steph du Toit
6 Siya Kolisi (c)
5 Franco Mostert
4 Eben Etzebeth
3 Frans Malherbe
2 Bongi Mbonambi
1 Steven Kitshoff
16 Malcolm Marx
17 Beast Mtawarira
18 Wilco Louw
19 RG Snyman
20 Francois Louw
21 Embrose Papier
22 Handré Pollard
23 Cheslin Kolbe.

Wallabies:

15 Israel Folau
14 Dane Haylett-Petty
13 Reece Hodge
12 Matt Toomua
11 Marika Koroibete
10 Kurtley Beale
9 Will Genia
8 David Pocock
7 Michael Hooper (c)
6 Lukhan Tui
5 Adam Coleman
4 Rory Arnold
3 Allan Alaalatoa
2 Tatafu Polota-Nau
1 Scott Sio.
16 Folau Faingaa
17 Tom Robertson
18 Taniela Tupou
19 Izack Rodda
20 Ned Hanigan
21 Joe Powell
22 Bernard Foley
23 Jack Maddocks.

  • Look its a strong Bok bench and as much as Rassie needs a win i think he is more giving last chance saloon to a lot of these satrting guys to see if they really should be in his plans or not. So i reckon this weekend is make or break for a lot of guys and even Rassie’s plans. Dont underestimate the Aussies based on those losses to NZ

  • I think it’ll be a long day at the breakdown. Kolisi is not an out and out fetcher and is not a blindside. Whiteley and Duane the preferred no. 8′s, but Kolisi is captain. Makes it very tricky.

    Jantjies needs a BIG game if he wants to stay in the Bok plans.

  • @StevieS (Comment 2) : Still think Kolisi plays like an 8. Vermuelen can be the prefered 7 with PSDT at lock. Would still like to see Van Staden get a run but guess its not going to happen

  • @McLovin (Comment 4) : In what universe is dip shit de Allende the first choice anything.He hasn’t played since Andre smoked him and he comes straight back into the starting line up, coupled with the crab, sideways running Kriel
    .Erasmus is starting to resemble Heynekke Meyer with his dumb selections..
    From 10 to 15 there is not one player who can tackle in that backline.
    Biggest laugh is Jaantjies,his last game was horrible.

  • The last chance saloon seems to be a perpetual thing. These clowns have been last chancers for more than three years and as many coaches now. There really is NO excuse for one to keep bringing them back unless you’re not the great coach you advertise yourself to be and your just grasping at straws. Jantjies has been on the fence since snorre Kriel and de Allende for 3 years or more now? FFS shit or get off the pot is no longer relevant that time had passed a year ago already.

  • Well consistency in selection surely doesn’t look like a priority for Rassie at the moment which can be both good and bad is different ways. Our record in Australia has not been good the last few years so getting a win there will be an upset IMO.

  • I can not make out what Rassie is trying to do here, other than putting the most tried and failed Bok backline together. How Marx, Andre, Am and Beast got dropped but Malherbe keeps his place is beyond comprehension. I know Pollard has been beyond rubbish but I still feel worse with Jantjies starting. I’m not looking forward to this game as I feel with these combinations we have 0 chance on Saturday.

  • @Hulk (Comment 16) : Rassie has clearly stated his objectives. He has to balance winning, with building experience amongst a broader base, and still deal with targets imposed.
    So keep all that in mind, when trying to assess his selections. He has already given players like AM, AE, Mapimpi and Sbu Nkosi chances to show their worth. If Sbu Nkosi, Coenie and JLduP weren’t out injured, they would likely also be in the squad. That said I think Brink has shown more promise than JL of late.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 23) : Well kriel and de Allende I think signed late 2016 or 2017 so they’re probably still covered. However my comment about Rassie deciding what kind of role he is going to play stands. You can’t be a revolutionary and a keeper of the old ways at the same time. He needs to grow balls and follow his conviction

  • @coolfusion (Comment 26) : I beleive Rassie entered this role with the best intentions about what he wanted to do etc. Those thoughts and ideas changed quickly and i believe as much as he tries to say the right things in the media he is a smart chap and is basically doing what is needed to keep his bossses happy in term of playing contracted palyers and hitting other targets. Winning games is an after thought…if he does ok at next years RWC then bosses will be happy. So think we need to view selections going forward with that in mind.

    What I don’t like is his habit of including his old W.P pals straight from injury into the test arena without even a Currie cup warm up game, first Ethebeth who was horribly unfit and now donkey DeAllende,

    What makes all the more bullshit is that no attempt was made to include them after they recovered from their injuries.
    Imagine Bismark coming on to sub Marx with 20 to play a coach’s dreamland any suggestion he is over the hill must be balanced against the selection of Britz.Equally Frans on the bench covers so many backline positions.

  • On a seriaas note. Rassie has clearly explained the Brits hooker situation more than once. As far as Bismarck & Fransie goes I’m certain there’s a very good reason(s) for their non- selection/ availability, and it’s got f-all to do with provincial bias or and other tin foil hat conspiracy spewed by some.

    Calm down ladies. Rassie is on it.

  • Personally I would think bissie Akker and burden should be Hooker options. I do think there was interference with steyn and bissie missing out I can’t fathom how they can’t be your players of choice bissie for his strength and fetching abilities and smooth lineout handling steyn offers the kind of versatility that cannot be ignored he would have had center full back and even flyhalf options now which is a sore lack.

Id put bakkies in and Jannie and bissie if they have been active and can be effectively used. All black seem indomitable because they have such a strong backbone if legacy players supporting while Young blood is brought in. We either don’t bleed the new talent in gradually or panic and go to all old men. It’s about finding the balance I think. And making the hard calls making the squad elite in all respects. That’s when people fight to get in. If you can beat bakkies you can get the spot. If you can lift Kieran Read you can be the new nr 8.

  • So here’s a question for everyone – as long as we have discrepancies in ‘pay grades’ will the best, on form, players be played? E.g. (and I don’t know figures so this is purely hypothetical) if Beast is paid more than The Tank, but The Tank is playing more in form rugby, it seems that The Beast will get preference to start games and get more game time so as to warrant the extra spend. Is my assumption true? If so, is this not an issue with choosing the best, most in form players?

  • Rassie must be starting to regret his decision to coach the Boks by now. I see he is also taking heavy flack for replacing Mbonambi so early.

    If we look at the consistent garbage our teams deliver in Super Rugby over the past few years, how do we expect any coach to get something out of this sorry lot? We just end up recycling coach after coach, but there is no coach in the world that can put a rabbit out of the hat.

  • Rassie not doing much better than Coetzee at the moment and could end the year being much worse. Until the Boks/Sa teams learn to pass the ball to each other more we are always going to struggle against the better teams. Making 1 pass and then taking contact isnt going to break through any half decent international defense. Cannot believe the number of stupid/naiive decisions they make on the field…and im afraid that is down to leadership. As for their gifted 7pt try…who the hell made that decision and then Kolisi too afraid of being tackled so just leaves the ball…what kind of captain is that. I really felt for Mbonambi as Kolisi is the one that should have been hauled off the field.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 172) : Firstly I think Rassie needs to take major blame for this performance. I am not clear exactly what the plan was on attack. The Boks seems to think variation is when 9 passes to 13 instead of 12 (who then drops his head and bashes it up). Rassie selects a scrumhalf on the bench he does not seem to trust. When your star nine starts losing it and gives away stupid penalties, you need to be able to yank him and replace with your reserve.

    However no coach can make gold out of cow dung. That is pretty much what we have available in SA at the moment. Rugby is a game of many skills and instead of our players gaining some (like knowing how to pass players into space) we have now even lost some of those (e.g. lineout) we used to be very good at.

    Then decision making just totally lacking – Faf calls another 3 Boks to pile into the first ruck (with already 5 Boks lying in there) of the game in order for him to execute the most useless box kick ever. Wallabies run it back on the right edge of the field while a bunch of our players still trying to extract themselves from the ruck – gaining plenty of metres.

  • Faf and Willie have been terrible for these last two tests. The problem is when they don’t perform, we have absolutely no creativity on attack.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 174) : We saw glimpses of this during the England series when they either were subbed or in the last test didnt play well. Faf returned from the UK and was doing the basics well but as time has passed he has fallen into his same bad habits. And Mallet put it perfectly when he said Willie is playing no contact rugby

  • @The hound (Comment 162) : It came as a shock to me thats for sure.

    I was honestly expecting our joint worst franchise to beat an international team away from home. We can also look forward to the mighty Kolbe replacing Mapimpi this weekend. Where is Juan De Jong and Dillon Leyds they must be close to a return.

    On a serious note though how bad are WP scrumhalves that they cant make this bok side? if they could even pass 10 meters Rassie would pick them.
