It’s hard to narrow it down to 60

I know the 60 will comprise locally based players but with squads not counting confirmed that is an impossible task
I’ve missed the giant Saffex Squads !
Any squad that includes Ismael has my approval.
Akker v Marx!!! Hoping to see that.
Some of your locks won't be there Saffex.
We can probably expect Jantjies to do well in that game considering that it should be more free flowing and he knows the defensive patterns that'll be used. In gaming terms, a mirror match is usually won by he with most information.
JVR vs Allende is a great prospect and, if it happens, I can't see it being anything but one-way traffic right over the top of DDA.
I see Davids is one of the coaches
I'm glad to see you didn't select Robert DUD Preez as one of your 10's
I don't see Fat Fransie in your squad, nice choice on Dwebe
Old man Fransie needs to stick to helping the Cheetahs out his days as a test player were over 5 seasons ago!!
I don’t mind Robert du Preez he is the closest we have to Pollard. He had his moments in SA and is playing really well for Sale but is injured right now. Probably better suited to 12 than 10
Do we have any decent 10s at our or in the country.
I guess we have Jantjies, but not sure if he is still in Japan
Oh, and please don't tell me Morne Steyn.
Not sure who old Jake will make his 10 now that Libbok has left
With 60 it's easy...
Lets narrow it down a bit...
Fullbacks : Willie ,( Fassi)
Wings: Kolbe and Mapimpi
Centres: Am and Esterhuizen
Flyhalves: Pollard (Bosch)
Scrumhalves: Jantjies (Faf)
Heads: Wilko,Kitshof (Ox)
Hookers: Marx (Aker)
Locks: PSDT. Eben( Lood)
Loosies: Jaco Kriel, Kolisi (has to be there) and Marcel Coetzee.
Ofcourse you have to select a few more reserves but that's my core selection.
With captains I would switch with with Kolisi and Am to please the both the politicians and ability to captain. I chose both Sharks as centres as it works very well...the Sharks afterall are the best franchise in 2020...I believe without Covid 19 they would or/with the Jaguares challenged the Crusaders for the final.
Green vs Gold or North vs South
NORTH (Bulls & Lions)
15. Andries Coetzee
13. EW Viljoen
4. Ruben Schoeman
6. Jaco Kriel
8. Arno Botha
16. Grobelaar 17. Gerhard Steenkamp 18. Marcel vd Merwe 19. Walt Steenkamp 20. Carr 21. v Zyl 22. Mollentze 23. Similane
SOUTH (Stormers & Sharks)
12. Marius Louw
4. Ruben v Heerden
5. JD Schickerling
8. Jaco Coetzee
16. v Vuuren 17. Ox Nche 18. Thomas du Toit 19. vd Mecht 20. Notshe 21. Nohamba 22. Willemse 23. Rickus Pretorious
South would win it
Saffex, no room for JJ at 13, 14 or 2 in that mini squad?
He'll be disappointed!
Who is JJ Chip chip???
Dave I believe in reality and made some changes to the 60 player squad you posted - bearing in mind potential retirees and squad-building for the 2023 WC:-
