Here it is – rugby time again!

The Bok XV, aka the Dirt Trackers, have arrived in the midlands and will take on an understrength Leicester team, kicking off at 19h45 local time.

Will the lack of established combination, coupled with unfamiliar weather conditions, curtail the Boks’ momentum? Or will a Leicester team missing a slurry of first-choice players fail to live with South Africa’s second best?

Teams

Leicester Tigers: 15 Scott Hamilton, 14 Lucas Amorosino, 13 Andy Forsyth, 12 Manu Tuilagi, 11 Johne Murphy, 10 Aaron Mauger (captain), 9 Ben Youngs, 8 Brett Deacon, 7 Ben Pienaar, 6 Geoff Parling, 5 Ben Kay, 4 Calum Green, 3 Martin Castrogiovanni, 2 Mefin Davies, 1 Marcos Ayerza.
Replacements: 16 George Chuter, 17 Dan Cole, 18 Tom Armes, 19 Dan Hemingway, 20 James Grindal, 21 Greig Tonks, 22 Lote Tuqiri.

South Africa: 15 Earl Rose, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Juan de Jongh, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 Jongi Nokwe, 10 Ruan Pienaar, 9 Heini Adams, 8 Ashley Johnson, 7 Dewald Potgieter, 6 Davon Raubenheimer, 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Danie Rossouw, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle (captain), 1 GΓΌrthro Steenkamp.
Replacements: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Heinke van der Merwe, 18 Alistair Hargreaves, 19 Jean Deysel, 20 François Hougaard, 21 Meyer Bosman, 22 Riaan Viljoen.

Date: Friday, November 6
Venue: Welford Road, Leicester
Kick-off: 19.45 (19.45 GMT, 21.45 SA time)
Referee: Stuart Dickinson (Australia)
Assistant referees: Roy Maybank, Robin Goodliffe
TMO: Andrew Turner, Graeme Hughes

  • @robdylan (Comment 4) : unfortunately i’m with u on the last one. I don’t think that SAXV will be too exciting for him plus back at FH.

    and it looks like he will do the kicking as well- that’s gonna be nerve wrecking :mrgreen:

  • Boks by plenty. Backline to cause havoc. Ruan to land 75% of his goal kicks.

  • @JarsonX (Insomniac) (Comment 75) : As far as I’m aware you don’t need a passport to represent a country. You only need to have served out your three years residency. So if he is legally a citizen in SA he can play for the Boks. Passport or no passport.

  • @McLovin (Comment 77) : He has a residents permit AND a work permit BUT he is not an SA citizen BUT the rules say he can play for the Boks…and that is why he has played for them….now if he is found to be “ineligable”….where does that leave him??? He will he or will he not be able to play for Zim??? He has already played for SA???
    confusing to say the least πŸ™„

  • @Me2 aka Mama Shark (Comment 78) : it’s a south african law that requires an explanation to the Minister of Sport every time a non-national is selected for a representative team. South African law will trump IRB regulations every time. SARU should, of course, have known about this and followed the correct procedure before Beast’s first test… I believe it’s all been sorted out now, though, so fortunately no harm done
