Boks v OZ: Match-ups

2012-09-27 14:54

All the key match-ups between the Springboks and the Wallabies.

Is Heyneke Meyer not all together there? Can someone please tell me why Craig Burden is with the Springboks and Pat Lambie for that matter.

Craig has not see 1 minutes play let alone warmed a bench in the 4 weeks that he has been with the Boks, I am sure you will recall the early stages of this years Currie Cup that Craig was having a superb tournament and was in fine form for the Sharks. How is it that he has still not being given a chance yet Liebenberg who in my opinion could only dream to run in Craig's shoes, continues to be favored as a replacement.

You can't even compare the sheer grunt, skill and pace Craig has to that of a sluggish penalty giving loskop from WP.
I feel Burden should either be given his chance or sent back to the Sharks to continue adding value to a team that appreciates his abilities. What is he actually doing there, carrying the bags?

Don't even let me get started on Lambie, what is it 10 mins in total game time for the Boks?, what a joke. let hope that Lambie does not decided to leave SA for other opportunities elsewhere.

Zane the best fullback in the country at the moment? Excuse me while I choke with laughter.

I am certainly not saying I could do a better job with the selections but what happened to the theory of picking the best in-form players.

I am sure most supporters will agree, some selections are certainly suspect, others truly deserving. Lets hope that those who have been so patient finally get their opportunity to shine.

Go Bokke!
