Every team has it's injuries.
WP should have enough depth and talent to smash a fairly mediocre Lions team.

Dobson isn't the Messiah.
I don't think that the boardroom shenanigans can be helping the players much.

All teams have injuries. WeePee specially have depth and can't use it as an excuse.

Dobson is more a worry. Expect a lot from him but seems that Varsity Cup was his highest level as coach. He keep pushing his Bishops Souties like Fleck.
Oom that is a bit harsh. I am no Bishops lover but other than Tim Swiel (in due to injury) and Lleyds off the bench, out of a squad of 26 for the last game. besides the two Bishops boys in the team, not one from a Cape Town Southern Suburb school. My feeling is that he is relying too much on the "Boks", particularly at forward to do the job. Only one player who has pulled on an Ikey jersey, so there is absolutely no bias. My feeling is we are missing the flair that Ikeys and Southern Suburbs bring to games.

OK, so more Souties. Dobson better get his act together. WeePee is playing far below par at the moment.

What do Rassie/Nienaber see in Kade Wolhuter and Dobson missing?

He can play 3 positions and his kicking compare to Pollard.

I suppose if the Bulls General Steyn Morne' is a V8 and the Freestate General Steyn Frans is a Straight six then Swanepoel the Lion King is a V16 1000 horses

And yet, to say that the Free State and the Eastern Cape have contributed nothing to the South African cause would be wide of the mark.

The value of these regions lies in their schools and junior structures, and ultimately the players who they routinely offer up to the South African system. The bigger franchises and the Springboks have reaped the benefit of these structures over the past three decades.

A study of the 357 players who have been capped since the Springboks’ return from isolation yields some interesting findings. The table below provides a representation of where these Boks went to high school and where they were based when they eventually received their first Test cap.

Kade is talented but my feeling is he is not ready for this level. I forgot Chris Van Zyl went to Rondebosch but he is not good enough to play for WP, hopefully he does not get a contract next year. I just feel our style of play is very conservative and based around a dominant scrum. The jury is out on Dobson.

That is a very quick and attacking backline. Defensively I am a little concerned about Lleyds, Swiel and Haznar (he is not provincial quality in my opinion) but against the Puma's we should have a lot of ball and I can see us counterattacking a lot from the Puma's kicking game.

He's not ready to play at CC level? And where is he going to gain experience at this level if not at this level. Fok, if he's not ready for CC level rugby then he's hardly that talented.

I have a feeling this is all related to the USA expats who want to buy WP. The press are reporting that they are now also talking to the Sharks about buying in and you also have Kolisi rumours flying around. My feeling is this is being used to put pressure on WP to accept the offer. It is an old negotiating tactic.

Pollard played his first senior CC game at 19 and had his first Bok cap at 20 after one Super Rugby season. I'm with you on this one oom. The kid's ready for this level, if he's not he'll never be.

Ja I agree. I don't see it happening with Kolisi, but it's a good way to get reactions from people.

Eish, that Bulls backrow. Going to eat us alive at the breakdown if we don't try something different.

Marco van Staden will walk into the Bok team at the moment. Goodbye Kolisi, we need a new captain.

Thats a mean machine there. Reminds me of 2008 Cheetahs squad when Duanne played with Brussow and Juan.

For want of a better word, backrows like that are basically just unfair.

The kick-off time for the highly-anticipated Currie Cup match between the Sharks and Vodacom Bulls has been changed due to expected thunderstorms in Durban on Saturday night.

The game at Kings Park was scheduled to start at 7pm on Saturday, but it has now been confirmed that the kick off time has now been brought forward to 2pm due to an expected storm later in the evening.

Great. Planned an early braai so I could catch the game. Now I'll be slaving in front the coals during the match :x
