It promises to be an incredible battle, mostly because ever element of the game has world class match ups, with both teams bringing a lot to the field. But enough intro jibber-jabber, let’s assess this properly.
Rugby takes centre stage this weekend as the SupeRugby semi-finals take place. SupeRugby is a bit like a long distance relationship, you do enough to keep it going, lose interest at times, but when it comes together, it comes together!
The Proteas are also back in action against the Sri Lankans, so let’s get into what this weekend holds.
The Boks scrapped through against a spirited Welsh in the end on Saturday, but in doing so the ‘fatigue’ question pops up again. Heyneke Meyer is not one to make excuses, and generally keeps his thoughts to himself if they have a tinge of controversy about them, but even he remarked about the players being over played.
So what to do about the Scottish test? Well there is still a way to make this a win-win experience with the current squad.
If the Bok players were cars, many would have ‘service now’ flashing on their display panels. The annual issue of ‘management’ and ‘player rotation’ continues to be neglected, and with that comes greater selection posers each time.
So, with 3 Test ahead for Heyneke Meyer, what is he to do with his core players, many of whom just need a decent sit down.
