Springbok fullback Willie le Roux and No 8 Duane Vermeulen were named among five candidates for the IRB World Rugby Player of the year.

All of you criticizing Willie or anyone nominated for this award is born under a rock. How can anyone say something like "I don't know how Willie le roux made into the shortlist." or "Willie Le Roux???? Unbelievable....Falou is a much better choice" if you are such a master of rugby how come you not play for the springboks or NZ? So please just support the guys selected for this award because if they didn't deserve it they would not have been on this short list. As the saying goes, jealousy makes you nasty. ??
