Captaincy concern for Boks?
WHO IS THE NEXT BOK CAPTAIN?
ANY SUGGESTIONS – Who is there to pick when Jean gets injured or steps down?
Who do you think could do the job?
Go and read David Moseley says.
Replacing a talismanic leader like John Smit will be no easy task for Springbok management in the years (months, perhaps?) to come. Right now centre Jean de Villiers is doing a fine job with his losing speeches and applauding of the crowd for their fervent support. But the 31-year-old is unlikely to make another Rugby World Cup. Who, then, to lead the Boks into the future?
John Smit left some mighty captaincy boots to fill. Say what you like about his playing ability towards the end of his career, but there’s no denying that the man was the greatest Springbok captain of all time, a leader whose talents may only be fully appreciated as time goes by.
