  1. He usually swaps between fly half and full back. He brought more to the game than kirchener did last Saturday as well.

    1. I thought Kirchener was pretty ineffectual really. It will be interesting to see who Lancaster picks at 15 this week.

  2. I still think Brussouw should be in the team, we need a guy that can compete on the ground..doing that I’m sure we can take most teams to the cleaners!

    1. That’s a joke right? SA won but not convincenly against a young England team on tour in SA. Played at Twickenham England will win and that’s before you come up against the All Blacks, Australia and Wales

  3. SA won (not convincenly) you say against an English team that had more time to prepare and more matched leading up to their first test in SA. The boks did great to win!
    Lambie is a better attacking player than Kirchner. You going to see a far better Springbok side in the 2nd test.
