Mapoe is the second best 13 we have, one of the best centres we have. A very smart and positionally sound player with leadership ability. It's a mistake to discard him.

Second best 13 my arse

He was handy in his day but at 31 forget

His best is long gone, hence making no impact and moving to a 3rd division club

On par with Frans Steyn

Wonder what is going to happen to Stassen - there was supposed to be a hearing scheduled for early nest year due to the Cod19 pandemic - but I think the time of ban would be the only issue to be dealt with.  

For the rest the good players always are retained by the French and they try and improve their squads, while they are always considering improving their squads,  The damage to the club by Meyer is obvious and one of the elements were that the SA players Meyer protected are gone as well.   Meyer had no idea about player selection anyway and that was the reason for Stade Francais getting rid of him.
