One can’t help but think Heyneke Meyer has missed a chance to blood
some talented youngsters on this tour. Guys like Pieter Steph du Toit,
Jan Serfontein, Scarra Ntubeni and Johan Goosen were chosen in the team
but did little more than make up the numbers.
Instead the Springbok coach played it safe and stuck with the tried
and tested Boks. On the plus side it means we won our games comfortably.
The negative side means we may get found out in terms of depth if we
lose too many players to injury.
Heyneke Meyer’s final team to face France was very strong. He
obviously packed the Springbok bench with forwards to counter the French
physicality and their strong pack. He wants to grind them down.
I don’t know if the Boks will win this one as this fixture has proved
a pitfall for South Africa, who haven’t beaten France in France since
