Two pundits make predictions as to who will be in the Boks match 22 versus Ireland.

Some oaks here will find it surprising who they choose at center. Also Moodie doesn't make the match 22

I don't have to much qualms about the pack selection. The selection problems come more among the backs. So difficult calls.

The team should be:

15. Willemse

14. Kolbe

13. Moodie

12. de Allende

11. Mapimpi

10. Libbok

9. Faf

1. Kitshoff

2. Mbonambi

3. Malherbe

4. Etzebeth

5. RG Snyman

6. Kolisi


8. Wiese

16. Fourie 17. Ox 18. Nyakane 19. Kleyn 20. Kwagga 21. Williams 22. Willie 23. Esterhuizen

My concern is can Eben or Snyman play a full hard 80 minutes.

You back three looks less flimsy with Mpimpi there along with Willemse at 15. If Moodie is running into problems Willemse moves to 13.

Good selections Dave I cant really find any serious issues.

I think poor Deus will have a breakdown given these two pundits selecting Allende and Kriel at center. Deus and Mozzzz have fallen for the own propaganda and now think these two are useless. :D

Yeah it’s an easy side to select

I’d be more than happy with Arendse ahead of Mapimpi

If Pollard was in contention for selection I’d have him on the bench

He will definitely feature against Tonga

I don't think Pollard will be in the match 22.  He might only get a run off the bench against Tonga. There must be no slip ups against Tonga.

No Pollard is definitely not in contention against Ireland, Rassie has said that already

They want him training and getting up to speed first

He played off the bench for Leicester on Friday which is good

Where's  Bismark? 

Sep 18, 2023, 21:43

Bismark is on the farm

Sep 18, 2023, 21:52

Bismark Duplessis is 39.

He would still be able to throw the ball into the lineouts, scrum, and tackle - not sure about anything else.

Kwagga gives you all the versatility you need.

If it's gonna be an arm wrestle...pick Willemse at 23 and have 7/1 split.
