The Worst Combined Springbok Team Post 1999
September 4, 2012 in Uncategorized
At this stage I am so negative regarding SA rugby in general, whether it being the Springboks, Super rugby or Currie Cup. The Lions debacle left a sour taste and Heyneke Meyer is trying his upmost best to see if I can break my big screen tv. Maybe that’s the reason I have not watched any rugby for about 3 weeks now.
This is not another post to bash Meyer or the Lions, but a post about the worst combined Springbok team Post 1999. Laden with controversy it will be, but let’s have a look anyway.
Let’s start with the Coach. We’ve had some real Gems in the past. Viljoen, PDivvy and even Heyneke is making a charge but it is early days for him yet.
The worst coach Post 1999 must be Rudolf Straeuli
15. Zane Kirchner (our current backline coach could also feature, Ricardo Loubser)
14. Dean Hall
13. Jorrie Muller (Grant Esterhuisen)
12. Wynand Olivier (Wayne Julies)
11. Henno Mentz
10. Gaffie du Toit (when he played flyhalf) ( Derrick Hougaardt)
9. Dave von Hoeselin
8. Pierre Spies
7. Hilton Lobberts
6. Luke Watson
5. Geo Cronje
4. Quinton Davids
2. Dale Sandton
The reason for not including props is, most of them play or played on both sides and we struggled to get really useless ones that only stuck to a position. You can include a few if you want.
The list could go on if we added a bench.
What do you think?
