Le Roux has
been around for a few years and I have always thought him to be a player of
real talent from the moment I first saw him at Griquas. You could see the brain
of the man in all the moves that he made. But alas – he was playing for so
called second rate teams and as such he wasn’t rated by the powers that be.
Suddenly this year the Cheetahs have a massive turnaround in their defensive
structures and start winning and lo and behold le Roux is suddenly THE MAN.
Heyneke says that he sees a big change in le Roux in the past six weeks which
just proves my point. Did he know that le Roux existed six weeks ago? I know I
sound cynical but I really believe that our selectors are pretty much useless
and only watch successful teams. There are many more players who miss out for
this very reason.
