Rosko Specman and Aphelele Fassi will make their Bok debuts in Friday’s match against Georgia. Jasper Wiese will probably make his debut some time in the second half.

The team is a good mix of first choice players, Bomb Squad members, players like Ox Nche with his single Bok cap and the newbies.

It will be interesting to see how quickly the team can gel as the Boks will have only the two tests against Georgia before facing the BI Lions on the 24th July.

15 Willie le Roux, 14 Rosko Specman, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Frans Steyn, 11 Aphelele Fassi, 10 Handre Pollard, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Kwagga Smith, 7 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 6 Siya Kolisi (captain), 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Trevor Nyakane, 2 Bongi Mbonambi, 1 Ox Nche

Substitutes: 16 Malcolm Marx, 17 Steven Kitshoff, 18 Frans Malherbe, 19 Marvin Orie, 20 Jasper Wiese, 21 Herschel Jantjies, 22 Elton Jantjies, 23 Damian Willemse

  • And it looks like Fassi just managed to get a Bok try with his first touch.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 3) : imagine fassi at 15 with specman and kolbe on the wings, no one in their right mind would kick it to them

  • Frans Steyn need to take the ball with some momentum already. Georgians have stopped him a few times just after taking the ball from a standing start

  • And when Georgia can’t collapse the maul for fear of another yellow Mbonambi scores.

  • Clever play from the Boks in their 22. Makes it look like a box kick and then the backline runs in a try from their own 22. Reinach scores at the other end

  • This Georgia team would actually give the all blacks a tough match, they don’t relish the physicality like the bokke do

  • If Elton jantjes knew how to pass like a decent flyhalf, specman could have had his debut try

  • What we learned from this “hitup” is that the Bok pack is capable of standing up against anything. No frills last night just some hard graft. The addition of Wiese was successful. I have watched his progress at the Tigers and he is going to develop into a young Thor. Sadly Kwagga Smith is still not at this level. In the backs, de Klerk will be first choice and on this showing Reinach deserves to be on the bench although Jantjies had some good moments. The other one at 10 has learned nothing in France and if anything has gone backwards. Willemse would be a better understudy to Pollard who was a talented boy in 2019, he has come back a very talented man. Specman may be a fine 7s player but has no idea about tackling. Against better opposition he will get murdered. Steyn has played a year too many whilst Kriel would be a good partner for Am if de Allende has not recovered from being braaied in Ireland. Fassi was outstanding. Of the Sale Sharks contingent, the inclusion of the du Preezs is a mistake. They just do not have the intelligence to play at Test level.
