Am captains South Africa A

Rassie has taken over the coaching while Jacques Nienaber is still isolation after testing positive for Covid. He has picked a strong South Africa A side which will feature a number of players guaranteed to start in the test team.

Rassie has also requested that the Stormers game against the Lions be replaced by another game against South Africa A. This makes sense as the scrapping of the second Georgia test leaves the Boks without much match practice before the Lions games start.

South Africa ‘A’

15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cheslin Kolbe, 13 Lukhanyo Am (captain), 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Sbu Nkosi, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 Faf de Klerk, 8 Jasper Wiese, 7 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 6 Marco van Staden, 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Trevor Nyakane, 2 Joseph Dweba, 1 Steven Kitshoff

Substitutes (from): 16 Malcolm Marx, 17 Coenie Oosthuizen, 18 Vincent Koch, 19 Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg, 20 Rynhardt Elstadt, 21 Herschel Jantjies, 22 Jesse Kriel, 23 Damian Willemse, 24 Kwagga Smith, 25 Elton Jantjies

British & Irish Lions

15 Anthony Watson (England), 14 Louis Rees-Zammit (Wales), 13 Chris Harris (Scotland), 12 Bundee Aki (Ireland), 11 Josh Adams (Wales), 10 Dan Biggar (Wales), 9 Conor Murray (captain, Ireland), 8 Taulupe Faletau (Wales), 7 Tom Curry (England), 6 Josh Navidi (Wales), 5 Iain Henderson (Ireland), 4 Maro Itoje (England), 3 Kyle Sinckler (England), 2 Ken Owens (Wales), 1 Wyn Jones (Wales)

Substitutes: 16 Luke Cowan-Dickie (England), 17 Mako Vunipola (England), 18 Zander Fagerson (Scotland), 19 Adam Beard (Wales), 20 Tadhg Beirne (Ireland), 21 Sam Simmonds (England), 22 Gareth Davies (Wales), 23 Elliot Daly (England)

  • Morne Steyn just doesn’t inspire me. Clearly Bosch isn’t sharp enough to be third fiddle, but still…Morne Steyn, meh. And there is Coenie on the bench, had no idea he was in the mix. Should I be expecting SA ‘A’ to win? Can’t decide.

  • And toilet peyper checked his bank balance and the checque cleared 2nd yellow in as many minutes for a fair steal

  • SAA now at 13 players. Strange the Peyper allowed the Lions to get away with the same against the Sharks

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 44) : faf, Willie and morne were slightly disappointing. Willemse at 12 is definitely working

  • Comment 48, posted at 14.07.21 22:01:12 by jdolivier Reply

     
  • @jdolivier (Comment 48) : Morne does look a bit too old and slow for this level, but Jantjies is also all over the place. Willemse could deputize at 10, but he has not played there for a while.

    Outside of the squad Bosch is a revolving door on defense, and Hendrikse (I think he will be the future along with his brother) bit young to throw into this level now. Cronje and Swiel probably the most steady performers outside the squad

    We better just hope Pollard does not get injured

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 49) : I wouldn’t mind boeta getting a run, but alas the sharks don’t give him enough time on the field. Willemse to me was always the little engine that could, but his 2 outings so far, he has impressed. Maybe he is finally reaching his potential

  • @jdolivier (Comment 50) : @jdolivier (Comment 48) : Willemse has been outstanding at 12. I’d like to see him start there this weekend, if the SA ‘A’ do take on the Bulls. He was running hard and tackling everything that came his way.

    Morne’s tactical kicking was good and he’s a useful backup option to have in the squad. We definitely need Pollard though.
