Why so conservative, Meyer?

I was totally confused as to the reason for the team composition. the average age was 29, close to 1000 caps - why? this was a nothing game, a warm-up for more inconsequential games... let's be honest, if we lose to wales, we should be very worried... Why not blood some youngsters with a view on the world cup next year? HM said he does not want to give away Springbok jerseys... well, this game did not count as a test, so this was the ideal situation. So what - we won. Woop de doo. Did that mean anything? it's like winning a warm-up game before the start of Super rugby. rest the players who are tired. Having said that - maybe he wanted to see if the likes of MS and Bakkies still are up to it. MS looked slow, unsure of himself, and totally out of form. Bakkies was his overly aggressive self, and is lucky he was not binned for a few of his transgressions. We need som guys with experience, yes. But to have an entire team of geriatrics seem silly.
