Boks weren't determined enough on tour

I have been saying this all along we are fielding the wrong players, they were great now just good when we have better options available. This tour was a fantastic opportunity for HM to test out other players. Instead he focused on winning games rather which didn't work out too well for him because his current team is carrying too many passengers. He only gave other guys a chance due to injuries and overseas players not being available. We will not win the world cup - will be lucky to win a quarter final. No disrespect intended for JDV but perhaps this injury is a blessing in disguise. He hasn't been the best person for that position in a long time yes he has had moments and is an awesome captain (apart from not taking points on offer). Here is my plan get rid of Jannie, Victor and Beast, put Bismarck on the bench if he doesn't find form replace him altogether. Get the Lions 1 - 3 on the field - they have had the best scrum for a while now (they can do no worse than Guthro). We need to field hungry players determined to win. Put Marcel Coetzee on with Duane Vermeulen and Jaco Kriel. Tell the coach to stop telling the players particularly 6 - 8 to go to ground with the ball we lose possession so much that way on Saturday we are so predictable and that is why we can easily be defended against. Give Lood and Etzebeth game time together imagine how much better a pairing they would be by now had they been given the opportunity to work on their partnership.
