44% - Jean de Villiers
21% - Schalk Burger
11% - Pierre Spies
7% - Victor Matfield
6% - Bismarck du Plessis
6% - Chiliboy Ralepelle
3% - Andries Bekker
3% - Keegan Daniel

What Sport24 readers had to say about the prospect of Jean de Villiers being named as Bok captain:

Lance - "Jean's on/of-field demeanour is right for captain. His cool, calm attitude is what the Boks need and his respectful manner in which he speaks to refs is a a big plus as he communicates with them in an unconfrontational way which I am sure they appreciate. He is also a senior, experienced player who I am sure all the Boks respect."

Lionel - "Wouldn't our friends from up North just love this: and some even dare mentioned that meisiekind will wear the Bok jersey before Jean this year!"

Patrick Cawood - "Play Jean at 13 then by the time the PE test comes along, Frans will be getting married and Jean will be injured!"

Real Tokolos - "We all know that the brilliant Mr. Spies is going to be our Bok captain and deservedly so too!"

Blouste Blou - "Ek persoonlik dink weer Jean is die beste op die oomblik."

Saffa - "He will be fine at 13, and is most certainly the player with the most leadership credentials amongst the names being touted."

Ltjvanrensburg - "Please Heyneke bring in Francois Steyn, he should play 12 come next world cup, let Jean move on...and please Jean de Jongh on the outside."

Christo - "I really dont care who the captain is as long as he is the best in his position and we kick Pommie butt 3-0."
