A retention of the majority of our WC squad with an emphasis of bringing new youngsters on board and a gradual discard of the old.

Vermeulen has retired, it’s time to bin Mostert, Fourie, Willie, Reinach and Mapimpi now given their ages

At fullback I’d like to see the rejuvenated and in form Fassi invested in. I would have included Gelant but he is 29 and his form has been a bit off.

On the wing I’d love to see Nkosi encouraged to make a come back and investment shown in Tambwe and Green

At centre I’d like to see Moodie invested in at 13 and David Kriel given a run at 12.

At 10 I’d like to see Sacha given a run - he doubles as a utility option as well having played 12 and no doubt would be at home at 13 and 15.

At 9 Nohamba has to be given a run, especially considering his utility value at 10 and goal kicking

At loosehead the impressive Gerhard Steenkamp needs more test matches

At hooker I’d like to see Andre-Hugo Venter and JJ Wessels getting a look it

At tighthead we need to see investment in Wilco Louw and Thomas du Toit, with Thomas equally at home at 1.

At lock I’d like to see more of Jenkins and Moerat and the impressive Ruben v Heerden needs investment . There are a number of useful looking young locks about at the moment.

We have so many good loosie options, selecting who to invest in is one hell of a job. The obvious two are Roos and Elrigh Louw but take your pick from Buthelezi, JL du Preez, Dan du Preez, Ruan Venter, Jason-Dixon, Dayamani, Hanekom, Horn, Tsituka brothers etc

What I would like to see going forward is an inflatable  sea horse. Or Bridget Bardot in her prime.

There must be inflatable sea horses out there?

No mention of AE!?

AE and Moodie from now until the next WC.

That's what I'd like to see.

I count Esterhuizen as semi established and he is 30 next month so while he might make the next WC, I doubt it.

We need to be investing in a young 12 - my choices would be Willemse and David Kriel

But watch out for 19 year old Bruce Sherwood
