Looking forward to the front row battle, are the new props up to it, and the bench. This will be a great test. They never seem to get dominated, Laulala and Hames, by super teams, including the SA teams, only the Saders (AB) front row and Lions (b and I) have put pressure on them. They have been around the block long enough to test all SH front rows. If a SA propping team can dominat them, well done, not sure they will though. (They aren't Saders or Lions) unless they have improved.

Ardie, a bit unfair the critics, not just your Loosie, there's a bit here too. When players like Ofa, (more all round play, and scrummaging) Scott Barrett, haven't seen him move a body yet in Int rugby, seem to get off a bit lihtly

From what I've seen of the Boks recently the thing that has impressed me is that there seems to be a new found spirit and 'team ethic' and they seem to believe in themselves more. That's an important 'engine' in rugby.

Etzebeth seems like he may make a good Capt?

Beast and Kitshoff are lh
Ruan Dreyer th (Started out as a varsity player into Lions. I once told his dad 'there goes your baby' when he got 20 mins first time first team. He had a good laugh.
Etzebeth a transformation as capt. New found responsibility. I think they listen when he talks

lots injuries. ABs too frontrowers and Dagg but Springboks late injury Ross Cronje stomach bug. Setback as he played with Jantjes for the Lions.
Coenie Oosthuizen th and Jaco Kriel openside flank injured.

Hames our loose head has never had a game like this against the experienced Beast, man or mouse moment. He is small for a prop, in modern day, but will be interesting. Our reserve bench props are not top notch atm, Crockett coming to end of time I recon.

Sorry, yep, Beast vrs Laulala will be good, Laulala is a good scrummager, this will be close to biggest test for Laulala, stating to have some great experiences

There is no sentiment in elite sport is there? Feeling a bit for the Boks here.
