Stormers giving their Springboks a rest. The 9 playing anyway the better of the 2. Senatla could score a few and Stormer loosies if the Lions don't tackle

Re: Springboks NH Tour Ratings Summary : Best to Worst Springbok

Not sold on Wiese. Always seems like he has a yellow card in him Jip. Rules and a player's interpretation thereof rule the roost nowadays. Wiese won a few of those long video reviews specially in the Lions test series whereas the Springboks starting blind flanker and nr8 hardly gave a penalty away.

Re: Springboks NH Tour Ratings Summary : Best to Worst Springbok

When picking the WC squad in a year and a half they should look at our Panelists Ratings ;
Of the 9 players Ave 8 or more : 3 were backs and Frans Steyn is one. So he should be in.
Of the 5 players Ave 6 or less : 4 were backs and WLR and Herschel Jantjies perhaps won't be at the WC
