Super Rugby Team of the Week 15
Your favourite panelists are back for the second week in a row. Yes, wage negotiations were successful and we’re back in action.
Let’s be honest, it wasn’t a great weekend for SA teams. Le sigh… AGAIN. One out of three. I’ve been noticing that NZ teams make a lot of changes before playing SA teams, should we see that as a tell?? Ek weet nie.
But as far as SA supporters go I feel everyone was looking forward to who will be presenting the half time shows. “Victor, of course, the stand-in for Naas because: Bulls and poor English”. NAAS one hey! (dankie Justus)
In other news, Rassie Erasmus picked his first squad as Springbok coach. Or is it as Director of Rugby? Weerens ek weet nie.
43 Players in the once-off game against Wales, and the 3 Test series against the Rose. Bokke love Rose.
It is concerning to think 17/43 (39.5%) of the squad is uncapped. A total of 627 caps. Heaven forbid we lose Beast, as that will drop the total to 529 caps. A bit worrying en fokken scary. Only 18 games to the Rugby World Cup…
