I know the 60 will comprise locally based players but with squads not counting confirmed that is an impossible task

I’ve missed the giant Saffex Squads ! 

Sep 17, 2020, 07:53

Any squad that includes Ismael has my approval.

Akker v Marx!!! Hoping to see that.

Some of your locks won't be there Saffex.

We can probably expect Jantjies to do well in that game considering that it should be more free flowing and he knows the defensive patterns that'll be used. In gaming terms, a mirror match is usually won by he with most information.

JVR vs Allende is a great prospect and, if it happens, I can't see it being anything but one-way traffic right over the top of DDA.

I see Davids is one of the coaches :D

I'm glad to see you didn't select Robert DUD Preez as one of your 10's

Sep 17, 2020, 11:58

I don't see Fat Fransie in your squad, nice choice on Dwebe

Sep 17, 2020, 12:47

Old man Fransie needs to stick to helping the Cheetahs out his days as a test player were over 5 seasons ago!!

I don’t mind Robert du Preez he is the closest we have to Pollard. He had his moments in SA and is playing really well for Sale but is injured right now. Probably better suited to 12 than 10

Sep 17, 2020, 13:15

Bok Green v Bok Gold

Sep 17, 2020, 17:10

Do we have any decent 10s at our or in the country. 

I guess we have Jantjies, but not sure if he is still in Japan

Willemse

Bosch

Oh, and please don't tell me Morne Steyn. 

Not sure who old Jake will make his 10 now that Libbok has left

With 60 it's easy...

Lets narrow it down a bit...

Fullbacks : Willie ,( Fassi)

Wings: Kolbe and Mapimpi

Centres: Am and Esterhuizen

Flyhalves: Pollard (Bosch)

Scrumhalves: Jantjies (Faf)

Heads: Wilko,Kitshof (Ox)

Hookers: Marx (Aker)

Locks: PSDT. Eben( Lood)

Loosies: Jaco Kriel, Kolisi (has to be there) and Marcel Coetzee.


Ofcourse you have to select a few more reserves but that's my core selection.

With captains I would switch with with Kolisi and Am to please the both the  politicians and ability to captain. I chose both Sharks as centres as it works very well...the Sharks afterall are the best franchise in 2020...I believe without Covid 19 they would  or/with the Jaguares challenged the Crusaders for the final.

D van der Merwe

Fassi

Wings:

Mapimpi

Kolbe

Nkosi

Centres:

de Allende

Jessie Kriel

Serfontein

Am

Fly halves:

Pollard

Willemse

Bosch

Scrumhalves:

Faf

Jantjies

Nohamba

Props:

Wilco Louw

Malherbe

Thomas du Toit

Kitshoff

Ox Nche

Pierre Schoeman

Hookers:

Locks:

Etzebeth

Lood

JD Schickerling

Ruben Schoeman

Ruben v Heerden

Loosies:

PSDT

James Venter

Ackerman

JL du Preez ?

Dan du Preez ?

Notshe

Jaco Coetzee

The players of 30 and older - who have not established themselves as Springboks already or are wanabees  should not be in the squad,.  I moved Willemse to flyhalf and Van der Merwe to full back for that reason.  

That leaves 39 players of which some would fall by the wayside.. .   I suspect the Du OPreez twins may be two of those - hence the question marls.
