Should Heyneke Meyer listen to the Fans?
June 5, 2012 in Uncategorized
A lot of people, me included, was dumd founded by some of HM squad selections.
The main reason being their is no real selection criteria visible for the fans to follow. Other than he went with plaeyrs he likes on a personal level.
I mean Kanko has hardly played rugby this year and has never really preformed in the Green and Gold.
Jano and JJ isn’t even regular starters for their franchise.
Willem, Zane and Elton has had very up and down seasons. Zane best matches was at altitude.
Potgieter was injured for 4 weeks.
Olivier has never preformed in the Green and Gold that said HM has never coach the Green and Gold.
So his criteria can’t be experience or Super Rugby form. One criteria that is apparant is that Size Does matter. The only exception being Kegan. Another criteria is that it looks like he will go with a kick and chase game plan. (hence Zana Bjorn ect.)
Well this is some of the reasons us fans our moaning a bit or are worried a bit.
Should HM listen to us?
The short answer is NO!! He has been given the task of coaching the boks and it is his beacon that is on the line if the Boks does not preform. He should be able to field the whole Bulls team if he feels like it. And as long as he can keep on winning we should not and will not complain.
We do have the right to question some of his less obvious decisions. And we can feel bad for players who deserve to be at the training camp in Durban but is sitting at home watching the Junior world cup.
I (and I suspect most bloggers) will judge HM on his results and results only.
I can’t wait for Saturday 5 pm!! Will be at a conference and will be watching it on a big screen with loads of beer.
(just hope I do not have to drink it to drown my sorrows. )
Ps On a side note us Stormers fans should be happy their isn’t to many players in Bok squad. The S15 is still long and the players need the rest. I for one hope they use Etzebeth sparingly – only because he looks to be injured and playing with an injury. He is still young and playing with injuries now may hurt him in future.
