Has Bok written all over him

He destroyed the Sharks tighthead yesterday and did the same to the Bulls before that

Strong looking lad who is a scrumming powerhouse

23 years of age - 120kg

Thanks - is he a tight-head or a loose-head?

Loosehead - he is a meneer

I saw how the Cheetahs destroyed the scrumming of the Sharks and  Bulls and being very firm against the  Stormers but did not recognize the props..  We really need a replacement for Beast in the Springbok team - so I will keep an eye out for that one.

We have Kitshoff to replace Beast, Beast was great but Kitshoff is even better

Other good options at loosehead are

Thomas du Toit

Ox Nche


Boan Venter

Gerhard Steenkamp

Dylan Smith

and Pierre Schoeman if Rassie is savy enough to cap him before Scotland do

There is also the very impressive 19 year old JJ Wessels at the Bulls

Rassie is wanted to be Director of Rugby and not Head Coach so that he ha more direct links to players coming through the system and ensure progress in their development so that they can become  candidates for Springbok selection.  

There is no doubt that Kitshof is the actual replacement of Beast in the team - I was more thinking of replacement in the squad when I mentioned  the Beast's replacement.

Boan is indeed a toughy - but the Cheetahs struggled against Kitshof and Malherbe, but so did the English in the WC and every other team as well.

Yep that Bok front row is something else
