Or just well done. So many bang on about the importance of merit but never bother to mention the barriers that certain sportspeople have to overcome.

When South Africa gives players equality of support then people can moan about quotas.

Siya is a good Captain
His openside fetcher play as nr6 he tends to blow a bit hot and cold
Are there better players in his position colour aside or 50/50 quotas aside , for me , Kwagga Smith from the Lions but then again .. I am a Lions fan and Siya is Stormers which is a team I don't really fancy

Come on the meat eaters! Would love to see them win these games, especially considering so many writing them off.

For the test against Wales on Saturday 2 x Pro14 players were picked
Ox Nche lh and Mohoje looseforward. Exciting to see Ox in there. One of the Pro14 players that deserve it
The 5x NH players joined but will stay for the England tests
Bismark du Plessis and Frans Steyn will join on Monday after the T14 final
For Wales on Saturday centre pairing to be Andre Esterhuizen (Sharks S15) and Jesse Kriel (Springboks and Blue Bulls S15)
Now that Kolisi is staying for England chances are good that Kwagga Smith will be the openside fetcher against Wales
Ox Nche will take lh with 1 of 3 the th (Du Toit, Malherbe or Louw)
Rallepelle will start at hooker and Akker van der Merwe from bench
SH talk is on Ivan van Zyl (Blue Bulls S15)
FB will be Gelant (Blue Bulls S15) with Curwin Bosch (Sharks S15) from the bench

I see, so you want them to win because of some bloke you don't know off a rugby forum, how very strange of you.
If England were playing your lot or the convicts I'd want them to win as well. Why would I support you load of bums instead of England? and by the way I want the convicts to destroy Ireland, see if you can make any sense of that.

Quote:
Flanker Siya Kolisi will become South Africa's first black Test captain in the three-match series against England next month.

The 26-year-old - who has played 28 international Tests - replaces the injured Warren Whiteley as captain.

Pieter-Steph du Toit will captain the Springboks in Saturday's match against Wales in Washington DC, USA.

"I believe both of them will do a good job as captains," said head coach Rassie Eramus.

"It is a huge honour to captain the Springboks and Siya and Pieter-Steph are two honest, hard-working men who enjoy the respect of their fellow players."

Kolisi, who skippers Super Rugby team Western Stormers, made his Test debut against Scotland in 2013.

Chiliboy Ralepelle became the first black player to skipper the South African national team when they faced a World XV in England in 2006, but the match did not have Test status.

I was just having a friendly dig bro, I always back the SH teams. I recall you saying that SA are shite and they won’t get any better soon, or something like that. I don’t really want it to be true tbh, I hope they aren’t as bad as it looks.

It's because you're an Anglocentric British nationalist who struggles to come to terms with the fact that most of Ireland successfully broke away from the Empire.

What a strange place this is, I declare that I want England to win and Ireland to lose, and I get called racist and nationalist, what these have to do with rugby I don't know, you're paranoia has got the better of you fools. Mind you this is the UK, the thought police are everywhere.

Phibes, old boy, being argumentative isn't a problem.

However, calling everyone else on here fools exposes you, my duck.

Goodbye.
