The first Springbok side of 2013 is a very exciting one, and one that mixes continuity in selection with rewarding form show in Super Rugby this year.

Francois Hougaard, for a couple of reasons it seems, has had a season to forget, and while Frans Ludeke has chosen to start him in recent games, Meyer has gone with the crisper service and sharper pass of Vermaak to service the inform again Morne Steyn at flyhalf, and that makes sense. In fact, many might argue that Vermaak’s form has played a big part in Steyn returning to form, making the retention of the combination at national level an even more astute move.
