Just replace Steyn already..you only as good as your last game

I listened to Nic Mallets comments last week and then read this article about the conversion rates of the flyhalves and I think if sentimentality was not an issue..Grant or Jantjies should be taking up that spot. It’s clear Meyer has quite abit to think about but let’s see how creative he can actually be. Based on Steyn’s last performance and the stats he should be the number 3 or 4 in contention. Based on Meyers big boys are better theory along with kickers get you points, we should the top kicker in that position.
Onto top kickers…I saw one of the most consumate performances from the Super Mario last night..all the arrogance and bravado that goes with a top striker..followed through with some excellent finishing..The second goal was something special..it was a simple goal to take but the way it was finished left even the German goal keeper applauding it..There was absolutely nothing held back…he thumped the ball so clinically into the net it has most spectators stunned at the audacity.It is clear that this 21 year old is clearly misunderstood and misrepresented in the media as a villian…the fact is he is still 21.
Seems that there are some losers today scratching their heads about how it is they managed to lose, the Germans I think would be quite simply understood..on the other hand..Rafael Nadal I am sure is not sure what hit him. Getting knowcked out of a major tournament so early can only be good for the rest that it would bring..but oh how his ego must be battered having to write off a loss like this..
