This is not my take on the certainties and possibles it’s what I perceive is how Rassie sees it. The should be considered is my take on who should be considered and regrettably won’t.


Fullback: Willie

Wings: Nkosi, Mapimpi and Dyantyi

Centres: Kriel, de Allende and Am

Flyhalves: Pollard and Jantjies

Scrumhalves: Faf

Props: Beast , Kitshoff and Malherbe

Hookers: Marx and Mbonambi

Locks: Etzebeth, Mostert and Lood

Loosies: Kolisi , PSDT and Vermeulen

Of the certainties Beast, Mostert and Vermeulen would not make my squad and PSDT would be at lock not flank.


Fullback: Gelant and Willemse

Wings: Kolbe and Lleyds

Props: Wilco, Thomas, Nyakane, Koch and Nqoboka

Hookers: Aker and Brits

Of these Whitely, Frans Louw and Brits would not smell my squad.


Fullback: Coetzee and Fassi

Wings: Duhan vd Merwe, Ismiel, Skosan, Senatla, v Wyk, Petersen and Combrink

Centres: Serfontein, Odendaal, Frans Venter, Vorster and Rohan Janse v Rensburg

Loosies: Jaco Kriel, Kwagga, Ackerman, Jacques du Plessis, Jaco Coetzee, Liebenberg, Wiese, Carr, Arno Botha and Marcel Coetzee

It’s going to be really tough narrowing it down to 31

Arno Botha? He doesn't even start at Munster, Cloete plays over him. 

May 08, 2019, 22:06

Crap Cloete is a 6 Arno a 8 and is on the bench behind CJ.

Ive watched him playing for Munster where he has been very good. The commentators always speak highly of him.

Always been a talented player hindered by injury but has had an extended run at Munster

May 08, 2019, 22:12

Botha came off the bench for Cloete in the last two matches, would have been three but Cloete missed that one. So instead Botha replaced Cloete stand in. 

May 08, 2019, 22:16

Because Cloete starts as an openside, Arno is primarily an 8 who no doubt can cover 6 and 7.

You would never start Arno at 6 only at 8 but that is not going to happen just yet with CJ in the side

Anyway this is not about fucking Arno Botha move on for fuck sake!!

May 08, 2019, 22:22

Cloete is still keeping him out of the side, if Arno was deemed better than Cloete then Van Graan would play CJ at 6 and Arno at 8. 

There are other questionable additions. Carr, Kwagga, Andries Coetzee and Goosen to name a few.

May 08, 2019, 22:38

You are fucking stupid since when was CJ an openside huh?

As for your questionable who gives a shit what you think?

If you can’t see the merit in a player like Kwagga as a perfect sub there is no hope for you.

Stick to another sport - I’ve heard it all CJ replacing Cloete as an openside.

Cloete is NOT keeping Arno out the side they specialise in completely different positions you fool

May 08, 2019, 23:10

I understand its not straight forward but don't put words in my mouth. 

CJ can play both positions to a decent standard, he's played both at test level as thrived. If you were the coach you'd pick your best to start, if you think Arno is better than Cloete then you'd start him at 8 and play CJ at 6. Comprende?  

Kwagga is a sevens player, union isn't for him. 

May 08, 2019, 23:37

CJ never as an openside he mostly plays 8 or blindside. No coach would be stupid enough to play a 115kg player as an openside. Cloete on the other hand only plays as an openside - your rugby knowledge sucks.

Kwagga has been great in the 15 a side game so much so Rassie capped him and he was MOM playing for the Barbarians.

As I said you know fuck all about rugby.

Your best post yet CC

Thank you.

I was going to point your ignorant picks out to you  ... but then realized that there are so many ... and I no longer felt like explaining things to you ... again.

What's the point of going around and around with a fool who's rated the useless Jantjies ... JJ Engelbrecht ... Coenie at tighthead ... Kwagga as a quality test loosie ... and, and, and ... the list just goes on and on ... ?

You are clueless in so many ways ... and my corrective post would end up being a lengthy one.

Been there ... done that ... many times ... and even though I've tried to help you over the years, you're still as thick as always ... so I thought it best to leave you in your little dream world ... you seem happy there ... and who am I to spoil it for you.

Last week I helped an old man cross the street ... this week it's showing a kindness, a little patience to a moron.
