There will obviously be some variants but the Bulls in particular look desperate

The Sharks and Lions look pretty desperate in the forwards. The Stormers have the best balance, but one can really see the effects of the post WC departures.

Useful post Dave.

The Bulls look pretty monstrous.

Our best front row?

The Japanese phenomenon is the most distressing. The players who go to Europe are  involved in top level competitive rugby and easy to see on a weekly basis. Japan was always a nice retirement package, now it's eliminating players in their primes from our screen......like RG Snyman. His development as possibly the premier number 5 lock in the game was of considerable interest.

WP doesn't look too shabby, but PSDT should be used the same as for the Boks...keep him at 7.

Jan 11, 2020, 17:28

PS: Plum, Stormers pack isn't half shabby either....and huge potential in the backs. It's time that the Dup bloodline delivers...last season at Newlands to boot...

I have some differences based on performance:

I am not sure about Bosch at flyhalf for the Sharks - I think it might be Jordan Chait,   I think the Sharks also have Muller du Plessis in their squad,   What they are going to do with him will have to be scene.    Also I think that Wiese will play at lock and not loosie.  Dayimane of the Lions ois likely to be their no 8,  

Anyway next Sunday the four Super Rugby teams will all play and I would see what comes up,  I will post the teams for those two teams on site and we will then see where they are going.

Muller du Plessis not in the Sharks squad and Bosch is highly regarded so will definitely feature at flyhalf for the Sharks - Chait might make the bench.

There are a few worthy players to add to the best I could come up with the 4 sides I chose:


Tim Agaba, Ruan Steenkamp, Ivan v Zyl, Jonny Kotze and Dylan Sage


Johannes Jonker, Frans v Wyk, Dayimani, Marnus Schoeman, Dan Kriel and Stean Pienaar


Ox Nche, Juan Schoeman, JJ vd Mescht, Buthelezi, Mtembu, Henco Venter, Nohamba, Marius Louw, Tambwe


Wilco Louw, Scara, Moerat, Augustus, Dan du Plessis, Ruhan Nel, Sergeal Petersen and Zas

That’s it guys along with those crap signings of Morne Steyn, Jeandre Kruger, Alberts, Jannie du Plessis and Josh Strauss

I'm not holding my breath, I think that it will be between SA and Aus to fight for the wooden spoon, maybe the scum wolves too. 

But looking at the stormers back 3, I just shudder to think how they will be exploited by the kiwi backs.

We have too many pensioners and laities in our teams. It is a pity that we couldn't hold on to all of our World Cup players, or most of them at least. 

That said, perfect time for Etsebeth, Pollard etc to go make a mint while they still have a good 4 years of their prime left.
