Cape Town - Former Springbok lock Mark Andrews says he would pick Pieter-Steph du Toit and Lood de Jager as his two starting locks for the national team.

According to Andrews, Eben Etzebeth should rather be used from the bench.

“My ideal lock pair for the Boks is Pieter-Steph at No 4 and Lood de Jager at No 5. I would use Eben as impact player off the bench,” Andrews told Die Son.

Andrews, who played 77 Tests for the Springboks between 1994 and 2001, has also been impressed by the performances of Lions lock Franco Mostert.

“In Franco Mostert from the Lions we have a player with a lot of potential. His work-rate is phenomenal.” 

Meanwhile, former SARU lock Gary Boshoff says he would pick Du Toit and Etzebeth as his two starting locks.

“Lood de Jager would be my back-up,” said Boshoff, who has also been impressed by the performances of RG Snyman of the Bulls.
