  • @Danman110 (Comment 1) : Indicates that Bresler has passed him in the pecking order for now IMO.

    Mostert was out for a long time and will in all likelyhood have to work very hard to get back in the Match 22.

  • Mostert needs more quality game time,looked bit out of sorts at times yesterday,but watch out when he gets back tohis best-he is a bok contender at his best.

  • Rather give mostert as much game time as possible in the vc.needs to regain his form.then he will challenge for place in match 22

  • Poor Ross Cronje. Seems like not having a 3rd scrumhalf was considered a better option than taking him.

  • @beet (Comment 18) :
    Poor Cronje? He may be the 3rd ranked scrumhalf, but I don’t think he is at CC level of play let alone S15 level.

    I see no reason take take the guy along on tour at all. I wouldn’t consider him unlucky either, he just isn’t good enough.
