Kriel looked in good form on Saturday. I find myself increasingly impressed with him in the 13 jersey.

7 Bok regulars in that side so would definitely smash the current boks if incumbents replaced the current lot e.g. Bongi replacing marx,
Notsche replacing Duane. JD replacing Mostert. Ginger replacing Beast . Wonder child replacing Pollard. Ruhan replacing Kriel.

I thought Lukhanyo Am was fantastic at 13 for the Sharks. Ditto Akker at hooker.

Should have followed Rugbypass's lead :)

As we’ll give this gong to Malcolm Marx many times before the end of the Super season let’s go with Akker van de Merwe (Sharks). Two tries in sultry Singapore as the Sharks went into a feeding frenzy.

Jens, I watched the full Lions game the next morning (without knowing the outcome), and was sure we had lost that game. Marx and Schoeman had great performances, but the back line was woeful. Voster was great on defense, but that was it.

It's the work he does off the ball which is so impressive for me. He has a real rugby brain. I don't think he'll ever be accused of standing in the backline waiting for something to happen.

I begrudgingly have to agree. Good outing from him *spit*

His real strength of late is organising the defense, which he didn't even have to do on Saturday. Will be interesting to see if his attacking game has really evolved when he plays against a more organised defensive outfit. I hope it has because it looks like he is here to stay.

Am was very good as well. Glad he is fit again. Some good competition at 13.

That's a refreshing sentence for a Saffa!

I hope they can both stay fit until the world cup.

It's crazy how bad our coaches have been at finding a settled centre combination.

Over the last 10 years we have had 31 different centre combinations!

Team of the Week – Round One:

15 – Israel Folau (Waratahs):
He made plenty of metres – well into triple figures – and was a real threat on attack.
Bubbling under: Jordie Barrett (Hurricanes)

14 – Jack Maddocks (Rebels):
It was not just the tries – which were both great scorers and one was a match-winning effort – but was constantly involved in the game.
Bubbling under: Manasa Mataele (Crusaders)

13 – Braydon Ennor (Crusaders):
The Crusaders seem to have unearthed another gem in the midfield, even though he is equally at home on the wing.
Bubbling under: Jesse Kriel (Bulls)

12 – Anton Lienert-Brown (Chiefs):
Many will look at the result and wonder how we could select a player from a losing cause. Apart from having beaten 10 defenders, he also made nine tackles.
Bubbling under: Billy Meakes (Rebels)

11 – Rosko Specman (Bulls):
SpecMagic was on display in all its glory. The first try was something special.
Bubbling under: George Bridge (Crusaders)

10 – Handre Pollard (Bulls):
The Springbok need to hope he stays injury free. His game management was from the top shelve.
Bubbling under: Quade Cooper (Rebels)

9 – Will Genia (Rebels):
Wise old head on those shoulders. Was instrumental in the Rebels win, even if his defence let him down on occasion.
Bubbling under: Aaron Smith (Highlanders)

8 – Duane Vermeulen (Bulls):
Carried strongly and often, beat defenders, made plenty of tackles and won two turnovers.
Bubbling under: Akira Ioane (Blues)

7 – Ardie Savea (Hurricanes):
The contest between Savea and Michael Hooper as intriguing as the final result. Not much in it.
Bubbling under: Michael Hooper (Waratahs)

6 – Marnus Schoeman (Lions):
Three tries, including a magic moment off the back of a scrum. His tackles went well into double figures and he won two crucial turnovers.
Bubbling under: Tom Robinson (Blues)

5 – Lodewyk de Jager (Bulls):
The line-out steals stole the headlines, but he made plenty of carries and made 15 tackles.
Bubbling under: Matt Philip (Rebels)

4 – Scott Barrett (Crusaders):
A string of big hits and clean-outs helped get his team over the line when it seemed an upset was on the cards.
Bubbling under: Luke Jones (Rebels)

3 – Carlu Sadie (Lions):
There was that monster scrum, his tackle count was into double figures and he won three turnovers. May just be the Lions’ most astute acquisition this year.
Bubbling under: Tyrel Lomax (Highlanders)

2 – Armand van der Merwe (Sharks):
Another energetic performance from the livewire hooker, who was rewarded with two tries.
Bubbling under: Nathan Harris (Chiefs)

1 – Dylan Smith (Lions):
Provided his direct opponent with plenty of ‘air miles’ in the scrums. Didn’t shirk his duties outside of the set pieces either, making 12 tackles and winning a turnover.
Bubbling under: Joe Moody (Crusaders)

Our boks are looking good and in top form. Very encouraging signs. Very comforting to see us Saffers dominating the team of the week. Although you could argue it was against the bottom dwellers of Super rugby except the Lions opposition

As they said on Rugbypass
Quote:

Two tries in sultry Singapore as the Sharks went into a feeding frenzy. Perhaps the ARU is checking Anaru Rangi’s (Rebels) passport as well as he was the best from their teams.

Agree about Am at 13. He was good. That being said, can't read much into his or Kriel's performances yet given the competition from this past weekend.

That's Craig Lewis's picks...cant be taken seriously. The dude was talking up Ruhan in the article. He is basically Rassies press agent. Look for a Kiwis team of the week.
