I think there will be some halftime changes made - like moving Willemse to flyhalf and bringing on Le Roux to replace Willemse at full back. Reason we need cover for Pollard and at present there is none really usable ones.
Kwagga has been problematic thus far and I think Du Toit might replace him rather early as well.
Using De Allende at 13 is another of those changes - he has not played at 13 since 2014 and the back-up position in that position is problematic as well. I think Pollard will also replce steyn ar 12 rather early.
It is also becoming clearer who would be in the quarterfinal team - looks to me that it would be as follows:-
15 Le Roux, 14 Kolbe, 13 Am, 12 De Allende, 11 Mapimpi, 10 Pollard, 9 Faf, 8 Vermeulen, 7 Du Toit, 6 Kolisi, 5 De Jager, 4 Etzebeth, 3 Malherbe, 2 Mbonambi, 1 Mtawarira
16 Marx, 17 Koch, 18 Kitshof, 19 Snyman, 20 Louw, 21 Jantjies, 22 Willemse, 23 Nkosi,
Redneck ... a question ... how did you get Matsushima from your bench to your starting 15 after the Japanese match had concluded? ?
Klown, I'm guessing they did an automatic substitution when the Bok team was announced and Kolbe was excluded.
PS If I click on "My Squad" it still shows Matsushima on my bench and Kolbe starting. It's only when I click on "Points" I see the substitution.
PPS An extract from the rules regarding automatic substitutions:
In the event that your kicker is not chosen to play, the player playing 10 in your team will be chosen in their place."
Doesn't explain why the substitution has happened already rather than at the end of the round, but it would have happened anyway.
I see ... makes sense.
