    Where is Jantjies, why is he not selected...

      sean.otto.9 - 2012-08-07 14:21

      He is in the Bok squad.

      His in the Bok Squad.. so i guess he would be travelling and therefore not available...

      If you in the bok squad, does that mean you are not playing currycup this year...

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-08-07 14:34

      By the looks... if they will play CC it will be at the end of the season like every other year...

      Jantjies is a big issue. I don't rate him as a defender, he is poor on defence and his close ball skills at the back of the scrum are also poor. Doesn't hit rucks. Go to Japan

    Where is Mitchell and Spencer? Also in the bok squad?

      Was there a final decision on Mitchel? I know that Spencer and the other chap were dismissed.
