Plenty of youngsters turning out for our sides and it’s good to see some class players back playing in SA
Wilco Louw is a beast in the scrums MOM against Cardiff
Seeing Aker vd Merwe back is good to see.
Really like young Hanekom at 8 for the Bulls he is a star in the making - Gatland already has his eye on him, he has a Welsh grandparent, but thankfully contracted with the Bulls for another 2 years
Young lock Ludwig looks the real deal, high work rate and looks to have bulked up this year
David Kriel is really good at 12 and I like Gans at 13, very elusive thanks to his 7’s skills
Sebastian de Klerk is a good addition to the Bulls on the wing who has also played plenty of rugby at 13.
Sharks are struggling but I like their young lock pair of Emile v Heerden and Corne Rahl
Dylan Richardson back at hooker is a beast - what a waste that he has that single cap for Scotland but qualifies again for the Boks in 2 years
Was impressed with Fassi’s defence - he fronted up big time, he looks to have filled out as well
Sacha has been brilliant for the Stormers - this kid oozes class, playing 12 but probably better suited to 10 but who knows
It’s good to see Gelant back in SA
Ruben v Heerden at lock is a future Bok.
Theunissen and Jason-Dixon add to our loosie depth as does Emmanuel Tsituka of the Lions
Big fan of Nohamba at 9 for the Lions
158kg tighthead Ntlabakayne is a pleasure to watch, how he gets about being so overweight is beyond me but what a player - just imagine how good he would be at 130kg
Horn at 8 is one of those players that always goes under the radar
Am enjoying the new talent and seeing the likes of Wilco, Aker and Gelant back
