Very few complaints from me.
My starting 15: Trevor
Bongi or Malcolm in the middle
That is a very large squad, 46 players. Perhaps it will be narrowed down.
It certainly includes pretty much the best players from SA at the moment.
Agreed Chippo...that would probably be the starters.
Not a scrumhalf who can pass adequately. Too many wasted roster spots. No space for Esterhuizen or Serfontein but we get the paper-thin Similane? Marvin Orie nicht gut. Bosch for Willemse. It's pretty much what I was expecting, as we are dealing with Jose. Some more political selections to pad it all out.
Bosch must be concerned that he was not selected, but I suppose he is the 4th choice - especially now that Morne has been the form flyhalf of the SA derbies over the last year.
Bosch could have been a better utility back than Willemse.
Bosch will never be a 10, but was by far the most effective ball carrier in the 2019 super rugby campaign from 15. At 15, he has the potential to be a very, very good Bok. Willemse will be the same player until he retires, absolutely ineffective. And if we were to raise concerns about Bosch's defence, what of Similane at 13? It's a sick joke.
Esterhuizen is certainly a noticeable omission, particularly in such as large squad.
Definitely a few quotas in the squad but this is expected
Scarra = Van der Merwe
Simalene = Serfontein, Ezterhuize
Orie = Botha, Jenkins
But also have to ask what Kwagga is doing in the team. Haven't seen him for a while in action
Orrie is useless. With all the lock talent that South, this plodder should be playing touch rugby.
