Baby Boks to make wholesale changes:
June 8, 2012 in Uncategorized
After a very disappointing opening match against Ireland, the U20 Bok team will have different look when they take on Italy tonight.
To have any change to advance they need beat Italy and England with bonus points,
As has been mentioned before, the game plan attempted by the U20 team on Monday night appears to be in line with what Meyers wants to see this Saturday vs. England from the senior team.
However as was evidenced on Monday night, if you don’t win the collision and get our box kicks spot on, this tactic can unravel and leave you looking a bit silly.
So much for Bok rugby moving forward after the World cup…
Anyway here is the likely team for tonight’s match. (only 3 of the forwards that played in the opening game remain)
PE boy Jason Thomas gets a start at hooker, good on him!
Below the team likely to start tonight:
15 – Marias Schmidt
14 – Tshotsho Mbovane
13 – William Small –Smith
12 – Jan Serfontein
11 – Travis Ismaiel
10 – Handre Pollard
9 – Vian van der Watt
8 – Braam Steyn
7 – Wiaan Liebenberg (c)
6 – Khaya Majola
5 – Ruan Botha
4 – Paul Willemse
3 – Oliver Kebble
2 – Jason Thomas
1 – Steven Kitshoff
Oh , and go Bokke!
