Proteas need to get tough

I like Graeme Joffe's comment reference to the Gibb's and Kallis's being missed. Slightly stating the obvious, but, the important thing around this is that SA should play with confident arrogance, whereas they should go onto the pitch with an advantage, being the # 1 team in the world, and letting the opponent know that in their body language and  the likes. This time around it seems as if the SA team stepped onto the pitch with their hats in their hands.... It is a shame, for it is OUR HOUSE, and the Aussies actually walked onto the pitch stating that THEY are the team to beat, not the other way around. Time is right for our team to start being aggressive at the right times, and start acting like the # 1 team in the world.... Unfortunately, and sad to say, the leadership is responsible for this, and if you have a weak coach and a weak captain, then this will not trickle down the line, unless you have a special inner strength like AB. We can talk as much as we want to, 'cause we are all pro's it seems. But the reality is that we need aggressive leadership, not irresponsible, neither someone that is in a comfort zone, but a well balanced and confident leader ..... Let AB take the reigns once and for all, and let Russell D do some thinking ref to his outrageous comments, showing his lack of composure and inners strength and average leadership. Sad to say....
