Jean De Villiers looks like he doesn't even lift.

how come 80% of Bok supporters could see the failings of the old toppie squad, but those "experts" could'nt?

I thought it may have something to do with height, Jean being 6'2". But then I saw the pic of Etzbeth below: that animal is 6'8" and built like a brick ****house. Yeah, Jean is just a skinny ****er and needs to start klapping it bru.

No he needs to retire.

JdV should be watching the World Cup from the Supersport studio but here is my counterpoint for the strength vs. size discussion.

Honiball was a beast. The style of those old springbok jerseys and shorts were to look oversized.

Those jerseys were pure 90's dude.

Creatine junkies running around the pitch with their giant waterlogged muscles don't impress me. Bulk for bulks sake doesn't mean much in most positions on a rugby field.

Honiball was just bone and sinew and he could push start a damn tractor.

Can't really compare a photo shoot picture with on-field pics.

Also, McCaw is quite possibly the hardest player in the world - tough as nails, and he's never been massive.

Also, comparing JdV to Sonny Bill is a bit unfair since Sonny Bill is a professional boxer

Yep, and he just has a different body shape. JdV would look ridiculous if he was buff. Conrad Smith is one of the top (if not the top) centres in the world and he's also scrawny.

Pressure to pump is yet another way in which the professional game is ruining rugby. Used to be a time when the game could accommodate anybody - fatties, scrawnies, pikkies, beanpoles, whatever. If Oupa Jean doesn't lift, it's a plus for him, in my books.
