Serious question re Rohan Janse van Rensburg. I'm a fan, but will he be able to bash his way over a All Black or English or Irish backline?

Hasn't performed as I'd hope he would. Maybe that long term injury had a bigger impact than we thought it would.

Yank.................Sards even started a thread for you, for it..............................

Maybe because the Lions and Sharks can put a squad together that will beat a Bok squad that includes Stormers, Cheetahs and Bulls players

(off the top of my head) :)

Who would you add from the Stormers, Bulls and Cheetahs (and Kings) to make the squad stronger? Really stronger not merely replace with preferrences


Easy, more than half the team...

15. Gelant
10. Pollard
9. Vermaak
6. Smit
5. PSDT/Lood/Snyman
4. Etsebeth
3. Louw

It is sad when posters turn the Boks into a provincial fight. Now there is a situation of a combined team being better than X, Y & Z team.

Typically they support their own team first then the Boks.

Like Donald Trump would say "SAD"

Yes Chilli, good post. That's why I'm taking it onto myself to ensure everyone's favorite team is the Boks.

RduP was crap again. Hope those calling for his Bok inclusion get back in their box now. I'd take Willemse ahead of him in my team every week. Pollard was very good and should be Bok 10.

13 was an issue before and still is. Midfield is a big issue.

Other concerns are still at 9 and now at 12 as well. Before the season I felt we had so much quality depth but none have really stood out. RjvR has been average. No thanks on AE. Etc. Hope Rassie is considering Frans at 12.

Gelant at 15 and then the wings...will be interesting to see who gets selected there but Right now imo, the only Bok backline certain starters should be at 10/15 with Pollard and Gelant. The rest is up for grabs.

Normally I don't but he seems to have a new lease on life this year. I'm looking at him as pure #5 lineout specialist who offers a bit more than, say, Ruan Botha


Credit where it's due. Played well again against the Sharks. Got through a lot of work and lead the tackle count. :thumbup:

Lood was outstanding. So good to see a lock with such a high workrate. But does need to work on his silly penalties.

If we have to go on ability and not just hype we should have a strong bok team.
Whether Rassie can make them click is another matter

He's lost the first round - still have Proudfoot as an assistant coach. This will not go well ...

Modern SA labour law. AC and Proudfoot must have paid a few good consultants.

But to do that, you need a certain mindset and philosophy. And that is not a mindset and philosophy that I would want around a Springbok rugby camp. Expect some players to shun Proudfoot.

At the end of the day, he's employed and needs to provide for his family. Blame the people setting up his contract at the start.

Agreed. The Bok set piece wasn't bad the last two years. It was the poor running and kicking from the backs that cost us regularly.

Forwards under AC were better than forwards under HM. Not the same quality but better coached.

Cape Town - Dai Young, the director of rugby at English club Wasps, has called on Rassie Erasmus to pick forgotten Springboks Willie le Roux and Juan de Jongh.

Le Roux and De Jongh have impressed in the Aviva Premiership this season and the English club's mentor said he had already spoken to the Springbok coach about the duo's prowess.

"I met with Rassie about both of them and put my point across. I wouldn't be surprised if they feature in the summer (June Tests) for South Africa," Young told the KweseESPN website.

Le Roux has been so impressive for Wasps that Young said he didn't think the player could "do any more".

"Willie has been excellent all season for us and is commanding in the air. He spots great angles and hits space by scanning what is in front of him for opportunities and is playing well enough to put his hand up for a recall."

Young added that De Jongh has been "excellent" and his defence is "outstanding".

"(Juan) does all the small things really well."

Le Roux, who can play fullback and wing, played the last of his 41 Tests in the shock 20-18 loss to Italy in 2016, while midfielder De Jongh played the last of his 19 Tests in the crushing 57-15 defeat to the All Blacks in Durban that same year.

SA Rugby has a ruling which states that only overseas-based Springboks with 30 or more Test caps can be picked for the national team outside a Rugby World Cup year.

It was however recently revealed the ruling would not be cast in stone for Erasmus, which means De Jongh could come into the picture this year.

“Rassie spoke to us about it,” Mark Alexander, the president of SA Rugby, said recently.

“The rule remains, but we will consider every request by Rassie on its merits. The Boks are SARU’s flagship and we will do everything we can to give them the necessary support.”

The Springboks start their 2018 season with a Test against Wales in Washington DC on June 2, followed by a three-Test home series against England.

England’s first Test against the Springboks is scheduled for June 9 at Ellis Park in Johannesburg, with Tests in Bloemfontein (Free State Stadium, June 16) and Cape Town (Newlands, June 23) to follow.

Rassie het tog ampers 'n redelike tyd om 'n span saam te stel. Solank hy so wyd moontlik kan kies kan die spelers gemotiveerd wees en hul bes doen.

18 toetse.... en Rassie sal soort van weet wie hy wil hê, alreeds, hy is/was altyd 'n uitstekende ontleder en kenner van spelers.


Hoop ek ....

Edit : At least the yong Bulls scrumhalf gave a much better performance, Saturday. He was well protected by Lood and Co., had more time, used it - and it showed ..

Cape Town - Dai Young, the director of rugby at English club Wasps, has called on Rassie Erasmus to pick forgotten Springboks Willie le Roux and Juan de Jongh.

Le Roux and De Jongh have impressed in the Aviva Premiership this season and the English club's mentor said he had already spoken to the Springbok coach about the duo's prowess.

"I met with Rassie about both of them and put my point across. I wouldn't be surprised if they feature in the summer (June Tests) for South Africa," Young told the KweseESPN website.

Le Roux has been so impressive for Wasps that Young said he didn't think the player could "do any more".

"Willie has been excellent all season for us and is commanding in the air. He spots great angles and hits space by scanning what is in front of him for opportunities and is playing well enough to put his hand up for a recall."

Young added that De Jongh has been "excellent" and his defence is "outstanding".

"(Juan) does all the small things really well."

Le Roux, who can play fullback and wing, played the last of his 41 Tests in the shock 20-18 loss to Italy in 2016, while midfielder De Jongh played the last of his 19 Tests in the crushing 57-15 defeat to the All Blacks in Durban that same year.

SA Rugby has a ruling which states that only overseas-based Springboks with 30 or more Test caps can be picked for the national team outside a Rugby World Cup year.

It was however recently revealed the ruling would not be cast in stone for Erasmus, which means De Jongh could come into the picture this year.

“Rassie spoke to us about it,” Mark Alexander, the president of SA Rugby, said recently.

“The rule remains, but we will consider every request by Rassie on its merits. The Boks are SARU’s flagship and we will do everything we can to give them the necessary support.”

The Springboks start their 2018 season with a Test against Wales in Washington DC on June 2, followed by a three-Test home series against England.

England’s first Test against the Springboks is scheduled for June 9 at Ellis Park in Johannesburg, with Tests in Bloemfontein (Free State Stadium, June 16) and Cape Town (Newlands, June 23) to follow.


Willie le Roux has never really impressed me. His hop-skip-jump sidestep rarely works. Give me Galant any day.

Hello Bloutoria, bly om jou terug te sien.

Yep stem saam, Rassie moet asb eerder locals kies as chicken runners.

Juan de Jongh is miskien iets anders, sy velkleur kan hom dalk help.

Die laaste 2 jaar het die locals ons niks gehelp nie. Kies die beste spelers en klaar.

I thought AE finally got dominated in a game. It looks like being on the winning side favoured Burger Odendaal as there was no domination what so ever

According to the stats, apart from the points, the Sharks should have won.
