Re: Springboks not man enough to play the RC

No matter how you dress it up, SupeRugby and International rugby between only 2 sides is not a great product and will get old fast, but if that's all that's on the table, it will have to do.

With the 3-time and reigning RWC champion Springboks not taking part, it's at best a stopgap measure.

How is Kobus van Wyk going? He scored two tries yesterday, although they were both from close range and more about his inside players getting him the ball than him creating something from scratch. Overall he has been good in 2020 for the Hurricanes, I'm just not sure why we are developing a winger ...
