    The Rugby Championship 2019

    Jean de Villiers springs to mind. Although he did at least make it to world cups.

    Willemse is a long term option if he gets some time there and can show consistency. Not convinced with Bosch wherever he plays. I just can't imagine him making the tackles Kolbe does.

    I see Swys de Bruin has quit as attack coach. Bring in Robbie Deans

    I have not watched a Bok game in Argentina too recently. Is the audio / commentary still so kuk?

    The Rugby Championship 2019

    Would love for Frans to get a whole half of rugby. Want to see more from him. Perhaps a bit of an unknown entity to the current crop of Argies as well.

    2019 Rugby World Cup

    Before 2015 we would have said Japan was that game. We play to the level of our opposition rather than remain a cut above.

    2019 Rugby World Cup

    Yes, SA though didn't have virtually our entire national team play the entire SR and semis and final of the event. I think that is the main concern for Argentina. They probably just want to test systems rather than have any real opposition. South Africa v Namibia in 2007 comes to mind as our...

    2019 Rugby World Cup

    Their coach has already said they did want a game, but given the Argentine players workload this season they preferred an easier game since they will be based in Australia prior to going to Japan to adjust to the time zone otherwise they would have 36 hours of flights and stopovers if going over...

    Bacon, eggs & lots of tabasco is on the menu for me on Saturday.

    The Rugby Championship 2019

    I have serious reservations about this selection. Four of the starting pack are just returning from injury; Beast, Etzebeth, Lood & PSdT. The loose trio is untested and I suspect a little slow. F. Louw has not been great in a Bok jersey of late. A debut at 9 with a 10 coming from a mediocre SR...

    The Rugby Championship 2019

    I'm more concerned about the back 3 having to field kicks from White, Foley, Beale and potentially even J O'Connor

    The Rugby Championship 2019

    Yeah, lacking some experience in the back 3 as well, but they are all very talented. I hope we don't get exposed there as with Toetie's Boks at the start of games against England in 2018.

    2019 Rugby World Cup

    France is probably also there just to have someone who has actually lifted the Cup before. I believe he is the only one in the squad that has won a RWC. He has proved himself on the big stage. Some wacky drop goals against Australia, some long range penalties in NZ during 2009. B&I Winner, RWC...

    If need be, we'll take up arms to take over this country, says Julius Malema

    Juliaas wants the taxpayer's money. Probably be making Zuma look like a saint if he got to power.
