Bokke horingloos!

November 12, 2012 in Uncategorized

Die magitge All Blacks het net soos verwag was, die Skotte se rompies laat rondwaai. Ses driee bewys maar net die reuse verskil as dit by aanvallende spel kom tussen die werledkampioene, die Wallabies en Bokke!
The Springboks came back well after trailing 3-12 at halftime vs a pumped up Irish side, trying to stand tall together, but could not forever. The Boks won 16-12 and that was about the only good thing from it. The Springboks again looked clueless, boring and serious questions should now be asked about Heyneke Meyer’s vision or lack of vision. Still no depth & angle running nor starter moves from first phases by the Bok backs is an embarrassment!
One dimensional Zane Kirchner has to go. Juan de Jongh must be given a go and Francois Hougaard should be replaced by a specialist winger. Maybe Jano Vermaak should be given an opportunity as Ruan Pienaar is not a threat around the fringes. Patrick Lambie did not control or made any big impacts; however, he must be kept there to grow in confidence.
Heinke van der Merwe was a little surprise packet and surely this must be the very, very last tour that CJ vd Linde’s name must be in the group.  Steven Kitshoff would have been a much better option to take on tour with a view for the future.
The Frenchdemolished the world’s number 2 team by beating a lack luster Wallaby side by 33-6. If players like Ben Tapaui and Anthony Faainga are rated as good enough for tests centres during this season, then surely de Jongh is good enough for test rugby. The Wallabies have a bigger problem as they have to accommodate Mike Harris in the team for his kicking abilities. The same problem the Boks had with Morne Steyn. Injuries to the Wallabies can’t be used as an excuse as this same team stopped the All Blacks a few weeks ago in Brisneyland.
The Pumashas picked the fruit of being part of the Championship and for the first time in 11 years puffed out the Welsh dragons in Cardiff. A great display of support running and offloads in the tackle was too good for the Welsh men.
Italy won a close encounter against Tonga, but as for the Boks, a win is still a win!
It is very important for all teams to win these tests as the World Cup 2015 pools will be based on the IRB rankings in December.

  1. Hi Kevin

    Could not agree with you more….

    I think it is time for Kirshner to get a break, maybe as HM said,give Taute a run at 15 and bring in de Jong at 13…I think currently even Mvovo might be a better option than Houghaardt at 11. I think he has more :bang” as an impact player.

    Juandré Kruger’s off the ball niggles is concerning me a bit, and as you mention CJ’S time is over, he missed numerous tackles and clearly is not up to match fittness…

    Heinke van Der Merwe was a pleasant surprise when he came on, while Flo and Etzebeth rendered good performances again. Think Lambie has room for improvement, but playing behind a struggling pack will always make it difficult…

    My team for next week”

    15,14,11 Taute, Pieterson, Mvovo
    12,13 JdeV, De Jong
    10 Lambie
    9 Vermaak
    8,7,6: Vermeulen, Coetzee, FLO
    4,5: Etzebeth, Franco vd Merwe
    3,2,1 Du Plessis, Strauss, Van der Merwe (Matawarira on bench if fit

  2. Ruan Pienaar’s try seems to contradict that arguement.

  3. Wat jy sê is vanaand ook op Super Rugby TV program ook gesê (Naas Kobus en Breyton),alhoewel hulle reken Lambie het seker die eerste helfte onder indtruksies gespeel.hulle was ook teleurgesteld met die Bokke se vaardighede,wat onaanvaarbaar is op hierdie vlak.
    Die spel patroon is nog steeds die skop en storm,daar is nie iets nuuts nie,ons het spelers met die nodige vaardighede,hulle moet net geindentifiseer en gekies word en n nuwe spel patroon moet gevestig en ge oefen word.
    Ek is teleurgesteld met hulle spêl en kan nie juus aan iets goed dink om te sê nie,hoop dit gaan beter volgende week teen die Skotte.

  4. No not really. that try was a once off. I refer to no.9’s that break regulary form phase play etc. Ruan is a kicking scrummie and that game plan is oudated and must stop! once try don’t make a difference

  5. Like your team. wont have a problem with it at all!

  6. Morne ek is bly om te sien dat ek nie al ou is wat reken Juandré Kruger moet liewer aan sy spel aandag gee as om met ander dinge betrokke te raak,ek het ook al gereken hulle moet Franco vd Merwe n kans gee,hy kan nie swakker as Kruger wees nie.
    Nog n speler wat op sy spel moet kosentreer is Jannie du plessis, hy kan meer doen as om net te skrum en geniepsig te wees.

  7. HI EPK

    Ja Ek het ook opgelet dat Jannie die gewoonte het om so semi-met n skouer te loop en glad nie sy arm uit te steek nie…

    Ek verstaan aggressie is nodig, maar sit die aggressie op die bal en los die res in my opinie…

  8. Ek sien die koerant berig dat Meyer dit oorweeg om Juan de Jongh dalk op buite senter teen Skotland te speel,nou weet hy nie of hy Taute of J de Villiers moet saam speel nie.
    Meyer weet nie wat hy doen nie,wanneer n afrigter die dag nie weet dat binne senter n spesiale posisie is nie en dat soos die geval met stutte,loskop en vasskop,kan nie enige senter binne speel nie.
    Op die oomblik het hy vir lambie op losskakel wat onervare is,nou is dit eers belangrik om iemand met ondervinding en vaardighede langs hom te hê om rigting te gee.Meyer moet bietjie dok Craven se boeke gaan lees om te sien wat spelers se primêre en sekondêre take is.

  9. Kevin ek stem heeltemal saam in jou stelling dat kitshoff saamgeneem moes word met die oog op bou vir die toekoms. As jong skrumwerker het hy my beindruk en kan hy nog net beter raak in die toekoms. Alhoewel adriaan straus baie goed gespeel het wonder ek nie of die bokke Bizzy se teenwoordigheid mis nie. Flo speel ou wel goed, maar met die oorlogskip daar dink ek ons sou veel beter af gewees het. Dit bygese, met sy besering was dit ‘n gu;de geleentheid om Deon Fourie touwys te gemaak het. Schalk Brits is al 31 en het nog basies net so 5 jaar maksimum oor in die tenk. Hoekom nie eerder bou met ‘n oog op die toekoms nie? Juandre Kruger lei vir my aan ‘n boelie sindroom en ek dink hulle beter baie gou hom vasvat anders gaan hy die bokke nog duur te staan kom in die toekoms.

  10. Andre wat jy seg maak baie sin. Bizzy sal ek nogsteeds enige dag bo Adriaan kies alhoewel lg sy beste rugby ooit speel. DV en Willem is nie uitstaande nie. hul speel hard en vas maar die Bokke kort meer offlaods uit hul baldraers.

  11. baie waar EPK, baie waar

  12. I agree entirely that once a game is not enough, but what I meant, although I didn’t state it, is that I think it is more to do with the gameplan than Ruan’s lack of ability. If HM let him play his normal game then he would do it more than once a game and cause more problems for the defense, but HM wants him to kick (especially since HM stated he doesn’t think Lambie has the kicking ability).

    If you put Ruan Pienaar in a NZ or Aus team he will make a lot more breaks.
