I like your first side - but the second one is similar to the team sent by Erasmus to Washington in 2018 - which was not successful and caused Mozart and other Erasmus haters to go ballistic.

The second side is an A side to play against Wales A

Jun 09, 2022, 12:58

Can't argue too much with any of your picks Saffex, but I suspect Rassie will pick Duane Vermeulen for the test team and we know he doesn't rate the du Preez twins so I doubt we'll see either in the A team . . . perhaps one on the bench.

Jun 09, 2022, 17:48

Agreed Rooi Vermeulen will be at 8 as will Willie at 15

Leaving Roos and Gelant out means we will certainly be missing a trick

Roos is Vermeulen on steroids and Gelant is just one clever bag of tricks

Jun 09, 2022, 18:57

It will be a major mistake picking Willie instead of Gelant....Willie has not been inform since WC 2019....the same with inclusion of Jesse Kriel in Pretoria camp, where 2021 season showed that these guys don't belong on this stage anymore...Guys like Rickus, kurt Lee Arendse, Tambwe, Zas are inform and deserves to be there....Not to say Pieter Stef is not a good player, but the guy hardly played any Rugby and his Form is a mystery...Evan Roos, Marcelle Coetzee, Butilezi, Thsituka etc. Are inform and should be picked....but out of sentiment R&N will pick the players that they know....whatever happened with bringing inform Players in and creating player Depth for the WC 2023/ Future? You don't have to be a rugby Master to see that this is very short sighted.

Fucking weak as usual. quotas and big jolly fatties. Point to me the biggest fatty that is going to carry the ball like a tractor and the little quotas who is going kick. Thats all we need to fecking know about the Boks. Fucking having a laugh with the list of names.

Nice Avatar Redrose... The Boks made you their bitch, so much so that you have our cup as your avatar...

Jun 10, 2022, 07:22

Sharkbok, Red Rose is just a lifeless little attention-seeker pretending to be a Pom. He's not bright enough to realize what a poor job he's doing of it and how many times he gives himself away.

Jun 10, 2022, 07:48

Our friend Clean Cut in drag?

Red Rose has got a few interesting views of the world in general...a bit of dark humor and unfiltered responses is refreshing for a change...hope he hangs around some more.

"Our friend Clean Cut in drag?"


Jun 10, 2022, 08:13

BTW, at some stage I thought RR was a Rooi-alter.

Jun 10, 2022, 10:37

I'd select a similar side except I'd switch Esterhuizen for De Allende, start Mbonambi to keep it an all Sharks front row and I'd drop Kwagga for Vermeulen on the bench. Willemse is injured so I'd have Zas on the bench in his place.

Duh Allende covers inside and outside centers. Kolbe can cover 15 and at a pinch 10 so Zas comes on at wing if Pollard or Gelant go down.

Jun 10, 2022, 14:08

Like your reasoning Xavi...nice Stormer flavour to that team.:D:D:D

Jun 10, 2022, 15:41

Needs must DB:angry: but its ok. We'll turn them into Sharks soon enough with our pay book.:angel:

Jun 10, 2022, 16:12

I'm talking about everyone who've worn the jersey, past 'n present.:D;)

Jun 10, 2022, 20:53

Truth hurts doesn't it? Too bad. Who is the bitch guppy? who has won three of the last four tests huh??? World chumps. Fatties and blackies. 

Jun 10, 2022, 21:36

Jun 11, 2022, 13:44

Mpower, are you really that fucking stupid??

Jun 11, 2022, 14:19

Jun 11, 2022, 14:24

The exact reaction you suspected huh? You didn't sound that clued up before when you asked like a vacant dough bag. Man up you moist fanny, enough of this "hater" bullshit. 

Jun 11, 2022, 14:36

" Duane Vermeulen and Frans Steyn are the notable omissions. The incumbent Bok No 8, Vermeulen is believed to have been rested for the series to undergo surgery on a knee complaint, while Steyn appears to have been ruled out with the quad injury suffered during a Currie Cup match in Kimberley two weeks ago. " - Sa Rugby Mag....I think these 2 will  be a part of the World Cup Squad for 2023....very happy for Roos and the rest of the guys.
