So what does Rassie have in terms of resources - bloody plenty in fact. Talk is of the need to bring in younger players given the age of our incumbents and Rassie has been pretty vocal about this. So what do we have:


Incumbents - Willemse and Willie (he is old but in good form)

Knockers - Fassi , Gelant, Green, Horn, David Kriel, Moodie and Hendrikse


Incumbents - Kolbe, Arendse, Moodie and Mapimpi (like Willie he old but in good form)

Knockers - Nkosi, Tambwe, Green, Zas and Edwill vd Merwe

Outside centre:

Incumbents - Am and Jessie Kriel

Knockers - Moodie, David Kriel and Henco v Wyk

Inside centre:

Incumbents - de Allende, Esterhuizen and Willemse

Knockers - David Kriel, Dan du Plessis and Hooker


Incumbents - Pollard and Libbok

Knockers - Sacha, Masuku, Hendrikse and Nohamba. I’d add Goosen

Incumbents - Kitshoff and Ox

Knockers - Gerhard Steenkamp, Thomas du Toit and Mchunu

The Door knockers alone, are more than Capable to be our Bok Starter team. …yeah sure we will loose some games in the beginning until this new generation find each other and gel, but come 27 we will have a young dominant Bok team. Important now is to focus on our weak points in coaching….like our structured Backline attack where Rassie should give Brown free reign. Our Forward play is really good, so bring the rest up to the same standard.

Siya Masuku is knocking pretty hard on the door for the #10 jersey.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with our backline play - we score as many backline tries as any other test side

Arendse would not have the test try strike rate that he does if our backs were not being creative enough

It’s an ignorant fallacy that we don’t use our backs to attack

Of counter attack yes, but structured Backline plays, not so much to zero percent.
