Matfield a better captain than De Villiers

Jean de Villiers was a bad choice as captain to begin with. Never won a single cup! Not a Currie Cup, not a Vodacup, not a Superrugby cup. Province won the 2012 and 2014 cups without him and when he (and Schalk) played in 2013, they messed it up for us. I'd pick Victor Matfield as captain. He won the 2007 RWC as vice captain and Currie Cups and Superrugby cups. He is the best choice as captain we have. Don't even think about Fourie du Preez.
