I’ll tell you why … Because both the Cheetahs and Bok
coaches believe Coenie Oosthuizen to be good enough to play tighthead prop at
the highest level. Hence both sets of coaches switching the bullocking
loosehead – enjoying some of the greatest form of his life from the left hand
side of the scrum – to tighthead for the last 20 minutes of the game.
Against Scotland, Beast Mtawarira and Jannie should have
been given the week off, while Oosthuizen, Adriaan Strauss and Adriaanse
started, with Nyakane, Bismarck du Plessis and Herbst on the bench. Then we
might have learnt something.
