Lions players deserve Bok call-up

WP have their obvious stars who deserve a call up as for the LIONS team - their scrum can take on the Springboks any day of the week and have more to offer in general play than say Beast and Jannie who are so tired and cannot perform for a full 80 minutes. Their experience is impressive for 5 minutes and that is about it and I really don't think they will measure up against England. I would like to see Whitely and Boshoff in the mix. HM could learn a lot from Ackermann - that his players 6 - 8 can actually learn to pass the ball every now and then that is how you score tries. I would love to see Jaco Kriel get a call up as well. I think there are one or two Springbok all stars who although I am sure would love to play this November are fully deserving of a rest and we should use this end of year tour to determine depth.
