Sharks prop Jannie du Plessis has already joined the Springbok squad and looks set to start in the number 3 jersey against England. du Plessis’s brother, hooker Bismarck, has joined Bulls prop Gurthro Steenkamp on a plane back to SA. Both players picked up tour-ending injuries in the Boks’ ugly 14-10 win over Scotland this weekend.

The anticipated re-shuffle should see John Smit move back to hooker, with young Chilliboy Rallepele on the bench as hooker cover. Brian Mujati, currently nursing a shoulder injury, should hopefully be fit to take his place as the only prop reserve.

Scrumhalf Fourie du Preez will hopefully recover in time to take over the number 9 jersey from Enrico Januarie.


  • Mmmmmm this is living dangerously…

    Smit has played his heart out and has looked well shattered at the 60-65min mark..Heres hoping that if the match is close that Chilly needs to come on near the end doesn’t happen..

    I also hope Dupreez is back to full fitness.Mujati the less said about him the better..cannot believe that he is even on this tour if one considers what others could be.

  • @PJLD (Comment 4) : Does she really? You know during her whole ‘sex tape’ scandal the only thing I could think of is just how fugly her feet were. I mean she’s a Hilton ffs she should have had some sort of corrective surgery by now on them.

  • Why is Heinke not flown over…

    I agree with Jannie for tighthead…he is better choice than Mujati from the start…
    And Mujati might not even be fit…

    @Hmmm (Comment 10) : they’ve got kak if Mujati isn’t passed fit. No fit prop for the bench.

  • @McLovin (Comment 12) : ‘Ugly’ feet…

    Although far be it for me to critise another person’s looks. 🙂

  • Big feet makes me think of an OOOOOOOOOOOOLD Jan Spies story about a mate of his who had size 12 feet and was an olympic swimmer. Not becasue he really wanted to but becasue he had built in flippers. 😀
