To start against France which will call for some risky decisions none more so than leapfrogging Am straight into the starting side ahead of the robotic Kriel.
This call is a no brainer if Am is fully fit which would be measured in training in his ability to step.
We have to attack the French scrum and in order to better facilitate this we have to start the stronger, bigger and far more gifted RG ahead of the bog ordinary bloody Mostert. We need RG on the field for a minimum of 50min not the 30 he gets off the bench
Pollard vs Libbok is a tough call but I agree that scoreboard pressure is tantamount so Pollard has to start
On the wing we need the size of Moodie on the wing ahead of Arendse
At 8 it’s a close call between Wiese and Vermeulen but for me Wiese has had more of an impact
Willemse has more than proved his worth at 15 and is a must
The side has to be:
12. de Allende
5. RG Snyman
16. Fourie 17. Ox 18. Nyakane 19. Kleyn 20. Kwagga 21. Williams 22. Libbok 23. Esterhuizen
Willie vs Esterhuizen is a close call on the bench as is Reinach vs Williams
