Watch ex-Sprinbok scrumhalf Joost van der Westhuizen make an emotional return to the Ellis Park stadium for the Rugby Championship clash between South Africa and New Zealand, the same arena in which he won the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

"tempted to take a largely full-strentgh squad for the November tests"...

Meyer should take either Boshoff,JLP or Kurt Coleman as the 10 back up to Pollard/Lambie should either one of them gets injured before the World Cup & then at least we have either one of those 3 exposed to test rugby in England.

Coetzee is not as good as Louw,but still good enough to play off the bench in November if Louw is fit.

Willie needs to play better than what he did or we need other options as 15.Cornal struggling to take down Savea is a worry too that Meyer should look at.And Jannie missing his tackles in the Australia game needs sorting out aswell especially with that slippery conditions in England.
