Post Springboks for Australia
We making the quota but serious questions on the wing , a 88kg ? when you have one of the best in business in Ruan Combrink available and the option of moving the quota player somewhere else. Bring in Ox Nche and the likes of Rosko Speckman that will make the team on merit and "qualify as a quota% players". Is anyone in SA a better fetcher with speed to the breakdown than Kwagga Smith? This is where quota eats us...that weak link. The likes of nyakane and chilliboy on bench again ... big quota pocketers ... This quota Bok team is still good enough for Aussies though but for ABs next weekend I am not so sure. We had quota wins before over both Aus. and nz so nothing impossible

Teams:

South Africa

15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Dillyn Leyds, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Jan Serfontein, 11 Courtnall Skosan, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Ross Cronje, 8 Uzair Cassiem, 7 Siya Kolisi, 6, Francois Louw, 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Eben Etzebeth (captain), 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Malcolm Marx, 1 Tendai Mtawarira

Substitutes: 16 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17 Steven Kitshoff, 18 Trevor Nyakane, 19 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 20 Jean-Luc du Preez, 21 Rudy Paige, 22 Handre Pollard, 23 Damian de Allende

Australia

15 Israel Folau, 14 Marika Koroibete, 13 Tevita Kuridrani, 12 Kurtley Beale, 11 Reece Hodge, 10 Bernard Foley, 9 Will Genia, 8 Sean McMahon, 7 Michael Hooper (captain), 6 Jack Dempsey, 5 Adam Coleman, 4 Izack Rodda, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1 Scott Sio

Substitutes (from): 16 Stephen Moore, 17 Tom Robertson, 18 Allan Alaalatoa, 19 Rob Simmons, 20 Lukhan Tui, 21 Ned Hanigan, 22 Nick Phipps, 23 Samu Kerevi, 24 Henry Speight

6 quotas. :D You realize the more you post that, the less support you'll get for ditching it. And if it bothers you so much, watch something else.

Mate, you'll get far more respect here if you just quit with the quota talk every sentence. Everyone already knows they exist, so no need to tell us every post(6x). All the kiwis want you lot to get better, the boks after all, are one of, if not, our major rival. When you bring it up all the time, it reeks of making excuses, and boks don't need excuses, we know the situation.

you guys are really lucky to strike a team with all these quota players
Lleyds, Skosaan, Jantjes, Cassiem, Kolisi, Mbombani, Nyakane, Ralepelle, Paige, de Allende
One player is on merit Beast, pity Bok supporters to see him as a quota

a team on merit :
Coetzee/Ruan Combrink/RjvR/Kriel/Galant/LCronje/RCronje/du Preez/Kwagga/Etzebeth/Mostert/Louw/Dreyer/Marx/Beast

Springbok team on merit were only picked 2007-2010, 1995-1997, years before 95

Wayde van Niekerk is given the honour of handing out the Springboks jerseys
His coach 81 yr old Tannie Ans will be the South African flag bearer at the national anthems. She is head coach athletics University freestate

Wayde's the guy who broke the longstanding Michael Johnsons 400m record (which was carefully planned in 10m split-second frames by US best coaching). Tannie Ans Botha stunned the world with her comment that she had Wayde worked on 100m x 4 and only warmed him up in Italy month before :)
