Looking at the Currie Cup at the moment, a lot of people are calling it a watered down version, and rightly so, all the Springboks are away at the World Cup. But think about it, where were the Boks last year? They were all playing Tri Nations and only came back for the play-off games. So this is the future of the Currie Cup, the current players are the future Springboks in the making.

So I thought it was a good idea to look at all the players currently involved in the Currie Cup, and select what I would name my Springbok second string team, almost like an England Saxons team, if that makes sense. So here goes:

1.Dale Chadwick – I honestly think he is by far one of the most promising looseheads currently running around in the competition, and has made most of his opponents engage turbo-reverse.

2.Adriaan Strauss – The Cheetahs hooker will also take the captaincy, as he is a strong leader and plays an all round game, from having a perfect line-out throw to scroing tries in the loose.

3.Pat Cilliers – A strong Currie Cup from him so far, he has made that jersey his own at the Lions with some proper performances in the tight.

4.Francois Uys – A fantastic line-out jumper who adds some good weight to the Cheetahs pack, will do even better behind a proper front row.

5.Franco van der Merwe – Again, a solid line-out jumper, has a physical presence around the park and is not scared of getting in there and doing the hard work.

6.Justin Downey – This man has really put his hand up at Griquas so far this season, and looks a completely different player to the one who left the Sharks. Strong runner with ball in hand and big enough to be an extra line-out options as well.

7.Marcell Coetzee – He started with a bang, and his form has kept him in the Sharks loose trio for the entire Currie Cup so far. His form might have taken a dip in recent weeks, but he is still one of the better loosies around.

8.Ashley Johnson/Boom Prinsloo – Who do you pick? Both of them have had amazing seasons, Boom more in the try scoring department, but they have an equal impact at the back of the Cheetahs scrum.

9.Dewaldt Duvenhage – By far the best scrumhalf of the tournament so far, and has shown some real experience and grit in comparison to others who have been tipped to go onto greater things.

10.Elton Jantjies – Another tough decision to leave Catrakilis out, but this man just commands a backline and has improved in leaps and bounds in the last year or so.

11.Danie Poolman – Forms part of a potent back three for Province, and he always seems to get in the thick of things when it comes to scoring tries. He has a decent kicking boot on him as well.

12.Johann Sadie – What can I say? I think we all rate this boy to go on to bigger things. We are all just hoping and praying the Bulls don’t turn him into a meisiekind.

13.Robert Ebersohn – Yet another talented youngster, making his mark with the Cheetahs and seemingly laying well every single weekend.

14.Bjorn Basson – I know this might seem strange, but I will still have him in my team rather than play against him. He scores tries, lots of them, and even though his defence is shakey (to say the least) he makes up for it in five-pointers.

15.Jaco Taute – Made his mark in the Currie Cup last year already, and has come on in leaps and bounds. He has a good boot on him and plays with attacking mindset, something we need at the back.

So there you have it folks, my interpretation of a Bok team based on players in the Currie Cup this year so far. There have been a few tough decisions along the way, but I am sure you will point those out to me anyway.

  • Johan Sadie is an outside centre. Elton Jantjies definitely dserves his spot, he has been sublime.

  • I think after the RWC Strauss has to be around the Bok setup.1 He deserves it 2 He already has a few caps so it won’t be capping some random guy.

    Throw in Strauss and Minnie and we look well covered at loose forward.

  • No Coenie Oosthuizen? Juandre Kruger? JJ Engelbrecht (can’t select Poolman ahead of him can you?)?

    If it’s a form XV then sure, but if the current Bok squad went into hiding and we had to pick a new XV, then a definite no-no from me :mrgreen:

    Wouldn’t mind seeing a Springbok ‘A’ side play a lot more games. Could run it alongside the new ‘Quad-Nations’ or something.

    Imagine if the B-Bok team can travel Europe every year, between the Super 15 and the Currie Cup, and play teams like Russia, Romania, Georgia etc.. It will benefit the Boks and those teams who never seem to play any rugby!

    It seems the only thing we have is that EP Kings side that went to the Emerging Cup thing on the Boks behalf? Who made that call?

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 14) :

    You’d have to use it as a development tool as well, and considering the opposition and what I think players will go in the future I’d probably go more like.
    15 Jaco Taute 14 Johann Sadie – out of position sort of 13 Robert Ebersohn 12 Francois Venter 11 JJ Engelbrecht 10 Johan Goosen 9 Dewaldt Duvenage 8 Nick Koster 7 Jean Deysel 6 Arno Botha 5 Juandre Kruger 4 Flip van der Merwe 3 WP Nel 2 Adriaan Strauss 1 Coenie Oosthuizen.
    16 Bandise Maku 17 Steven Kitshoff 18 Wilhelm Steenkamp 19 Ashley Johnson 20 Jano Vermaak 21 Elton Jantjies 22 Jaco Taute

    Had the hardest time leaving out Elton Jantjies as a starter but I think Johan Goosen is Springbok flyhalf at the next World Cup.

    Taking nothing away from a few players you selected though. All good players. :mrgreen:

  • I really think Flip can be a damned good player but truth is he is a bit wonky this season, someone have a chat with him.

    On form he would get any number 4 jumper anywhere.

    Think we’ll see a BIG season from him next year. Hopefully he comes through well, otherwise we definitely need Gerhard Mostert.

    And I’d prefer we stop selecting overseas based players. Too many of them are leaving knowing they’ll still get a place in the Bok squad (like Frans – of course he knew).

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 31) :

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with Ruan. He played behind a shocking forward effort in Australasia, and they actually put a bit of points on the board as well – unlike the current guys. He wasn’t half as bad as people are making out.

    Also remember he won Ulster Players Player of the Year. He just needs a few games to settle in I’d say. Doesn’t bring the same cheek as Francois Hougaard though but if I had to start one I’d start Pienaar over Hougaard at this stage.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 41) :

    Exactly. Tactical appreciation, you’d have to go with Ruan Pienaar. But I’d have Hougaard on the bench because he makes an immediate impact, as he obviously has proven now 😆 Ruan had it tough because no matter what he was never going to take over the 9 jersey from Fourie du Preez. And now his good performances go unnoticed because he doesn’t play in SA.

    I’m worried about Marcell, though… he’s been quiet the last few weeks. Plum tends to do this to his 7s… play them into the ground and then it takes them a while to recover.

    I wonder if Marcell’s carrying an injury

    I’d say Plumtree should give Coetzee a rest, yes. But then give him some game-time at 8 where it’s less forced. Don’t necessarily have to go looking for the ball and can roam a tad more. Would like to see what he can do there, and then hopefully make Willem Alberts into a specialist in one of the positions! (Preferably blindside I think).

  • You can play Chadwick or Herbz but both been struggeling the last couple of weeks same with Coetzee. Hargreaves and Skeate are doing good but not that good. Deysel not were he should be and Daniels keeps losing his cool. McCloud again is not were he should be Freddie is French. Bosman and Terreblance probebly the worst 2 centres in the CC. Mvovo and Sithole doesn’t have form at the moment. The only one I’d play is Ludick but he is up against Taute whom is in sublime form

  • @hendrikp (Comment 11) : I agree accept Jeandre Kruger, I really need to understand the fuss about the man, I feel he is a flank that got pushed into the 5 spot…he is not really an imposing presence,good line out jumper but if it gets tough he goes of the field. I rate young Hendrik Roodt vs Chopper(van der merwe), and then young Bressler(what I like about him is he is almost a clone of Bekker(wish we had him at boks!!) And JJ Engelbrecht is going to score a lot of Bulls try(WTF Province!!!) And what’s up with the Bulls the are picking up Grey Boys like mad!!!

  • @BoerSeun (Comment 80) :

    Don’t rate Hendrik Roodt much at all. He’s a BIG unit but I’d say his conditioning is always going to be a problem. He’s just not what I’d call an ‘athlete’. Marius Coetzer is also no good man. He’s done some good things with ball in hand, but if you don’t rate Kruger then you definitely can’t include Coetzer.

    Arno Botha also outplayed Kolisi as part of that U20 squad. Hasn’t had too many oppurtunities in Pretoria but when he has I think he’s been brilliant.

    Think Killian & Strauss also hit their ceiling. Strauss at Super rugby level, and Killian definitely at CC level.

  • @hendrikp (Comment 81) : @Ben (Comment 85) :

    Clearly the 2 of you watch rugby through thick bottle tops ..

    Killian is a more than useful Superugby player and has proven himself on that stage.

    🙄

    Must i educate u again Ben ..

  • @CoffeeshopBok;-) (Comment 86) : Ha ha! No its fine. Look how that turned out for you when you told me Bosman is so brilliant. 😉

    He’s so much more than usefull as the rest off that squad last year. Remind me where did you guys finish on the log?

    Point is he is far from Bok or even Bok B quality! Also nothing special at SupeRugby. Just my opinion..

    I agree not Bok material ..

    As for Bosman ..i replied a few days ago to you …he is surrounded by frankly averag players ..

    Its sad to see actually ..he asn’t crap last year now was he ..

    Why would u feel the need to bring up log positions ..thats just nasty really !

    CSB the problem with Bosman is his inconcistancy on defense. How can that be the fault of the poor players around him? I agree he isn’t kak on attack but then he needs an Adi outside of him, not a fullback. He needs to sort out his defense then he will be fine.
