I must admit I was (and still is) furious about the Springbok lost in the last minute of the match last week against Australia. I am to be honest fed-up with the box kick tactics.
I am not a fan of kicking your possession away. I played for the university u/20 team in the 1980’s mosly as flyhalf and inside center in a time when Naas Botha was…[Read more]
Very interesting that the ‘pasella’ team from two years back are now suddenly starting to win matches. Two in a row against the two bettter performing franchises of the last two years. Yes it’s early season […]
Depending on Goossen’s form I might consider him on the bench against Wales and Scotland. If it rains in Scotland like it normally does Frans Steyn and Morne Steyn could be good to have on the field.
We are […]
I am not so sure about Franco. I haven’t seen anything from him yet that makes me think we’ve got a world beater.
Will probably depend on who we play but mostly something like: Aplon; Willie le Roux; Jacque Fourie; Jde Villiers; Habana; Lambie (depending on weather and game plan); Fourie du Preez; Vermeulen; Alberts; Louw; […]
Yip Rhule did not have an outstanding year which is the reason I didn’t pick him. He might be the next big star so I domclot honk he will be a bad investment.
Scrumhalf is a challenge with the two incumbents […]
Guthro is bestendig maar lyk of nie hy meer honger is vir Internasionale rugby nie. Coenie is honger en tans die ‘back-up’ vasskop. Hierdie is ‘n goeie geleentheid om hom te vergelyk met ander opkommende vasskoppe.
Ek hou van Rhule en het hom aanvanklik in gehad. Koble is opwindend maar te klein en onervare. Hy sal geteiken word met die ‘high kicks’ naby ons doellyn.
Sy besluitnemimg is ook nog bietjie verdag. Ek sal […]
Met FdP half beseer en ook op die einde van sy rugby loopbaan dink ek daar moet gedink word aan wie gaan nou groot gemaak word vir volgende RWC.
Ruan is duidelik nie die oplossing nie. Reinach het nog baie om […]
Gio Aplon – For his ability to spark something and the pace that he injects into the backline
Patrick Lambie – I’ll prefer Lambie on flyhalf but want Goossen back in the environment. Lambie […]
The S15 has learned the AB teams to play us (to trust their running game and not to get pulled into a kickathon).
The big difference for me between the AB’s and us has been the breakdowns. We are very close […]
Thing is Willie has this ability to get himself in the right spots. It is so good that on both those occasions against the AB no other Springbok was actually close enough to support; demonstrating how much better […]
Yes things is looking better. We are more effective at the tackle ball; a lot more structure and explosiveness at the collisions.
In the process (of improving this aspects) our aerial play, kick-offs and […]
Yes that move is hard to understand. Meyer must have some theory about it because it’s not the first time he subs the front row when the boks are getting ready for a crucial scrum (defensively or […]
Yip they were the smarter team.
You are actually right. Kirschner and Steyn were the guilty parties (in some shape or form) in all the tries scored against us.
Steyn’s defence was a major problem in the Edin park test as well. The AB target […]
Now you’re talking. Jaque will make a big difference.
I have been wondering about Willie le Roux on flyhalf.
Yip we have a problem on no5 lock and back-up tight head. Morne Steyn at flyhalf is certainly not asking enough question from the defence. Hopefully Goossen will be back next year (if not end of the year).
I am actually a big Fourie du Preez fan. I am extremely happy he is back in the team. My intension was not to single him out but to point out specific incidents. I also mentioned Alberts, Engelbrecht and Kirschner […]
