Many Bok players are potential greats, except for one missing element. Now with the news that the Chinese have used the gene editing tool Crispr to modify embryos....we can speculate on the modifications needed to have created a better Bok team at the 2015 WC:
Willie.....the neural pathway for right foot kicking to supplement the left foot.
Habana....another 3 inches to be the perfect high ball chaser.
Jessie Kriel....another 30 IQ points
Allende....another 40 IQ points and peripheral vision.
JP Peterson......10 more metres in 10 seconds.
Pollard.....10% more upper body strength for tackling.
F du Preez.....nothing needed
Beast....10% more in the squat.
Bismarck...5 % less aggression
Fatty Malherbe....same weight, 50% lower fat percentage....less top heavy physique
Etzebeth.....5% less aggression....the ability to run and pass
Victor.....a slower genetic clock, taking him back 5 years, 2% scale up
Schalk Burger....a bullet proof 2004 fetcher's neck
Willem Alberts 10 more metres over 100.
Duane Vermeulen....the ability to convey effort in all the stuff he makes look effortless.
Those changes would have been enough.
