Boks brace for Ireland

2012-11-06 08:49

Check out pictures from the Springbok training session ahead of their game against Ireland in Dublin.

Backs:
15 Jaco Taute, Defensively sound and good under the high ball. Will also still be young enough for the next WC
14 JP Pietersen, One of the best in the world. His work rate is second to none.
13 Juan de Jongh, Proved how good he is in the CC final
12 Jean de Villiers (captain), We are short at centre, and there is no obvious replacement on tour.
11 Lwazi Mvovo, Fastest man in the squad.
10 Patrick Lambie, Morne Steyn has had his chance. Its time to start getting the squad ready for the WC
9 Ruan Pienaar, There is nobody on tour who comes close to him. He also knows British conditions

Forwards:
8 Francois Louw, Has not put a foot wrong since being called up
7 Willem Alberts, Without a peer in SA at the moment
6 Marcell Coetzee, Another promising youngster for the next WC
5 Juandré Kruger, Giving youth a chance and some experience in British conditions.
4 Eben Etzebeth, Needs to forge a partnership with Kruger for the next WC
3 Jannie du Plessis, As with the beast, is peerless for 60 minutes to soften up the opposition
2 Adriaan Strauss, After Bissie, he is the best we have. Will need to sort out his lineout work though.
1 Tendai Mtawarira, Good for 60 minutes to batter the opposition into submission before bring on fresh legs
 
16 Francois Hougaard, Versatile impact player for the last 20 minutes
17 Lionel Mapoe, Impact player
18 Elton Jantjies, Best of a poor bunch at flyhalf. Not sure he is good enough for the international stage, but he has to get his chance.
19 Flip van der Merwe,
20 Gurthro Steenkamp,
21 CJ van der Linde,
22 Schalk Brits, Playing great rugby in Britain, so deserves a chance, even if only for his experience.
23 Duane Vermeulen
