Graeme Henry went into a 2007 World Cup with 2 All-Black teams -each of which was beating test teams.
They had so much depth - but then suddenly they went into a tight test match and it was clear they did not have an A-team combination.
It was unclear in many cases who the first choices were, so the All Blacks had 2 B-teams, with no clear A-team.
The combinations had not developed, because of chopping and changing the starting team to accommodate 30 players.
With the Springbok backline, so many of the positions are unclear as to who is the preferred starter.
With so many different combinations being tested, it is unclear
I feel it would be better to follow a similar approach to most teams in this World Cup, namely to start each game with the best team, just tweaking combinations and the bench to give some extra people game time.
This gives the backup players some game time, but focuses more on getting the A-team peaking as the tournament progresses .
Hopefully, RassNabber proves me wrong, but if things do go wrong for the Boks - questions will be raised.
