  2. I was spot-on with the starting line-up, but got three wrong at the bench. I have some critics however, Basson’s defence is suspect, Pierre Spies’ handling behind the scrum and on the ground, so too his cross defence and tactical placement on the field is not good. Willem Alberts is just that meter to slow for a Nr7 and Jannie du Plessis went backwards (or upwards) in every scrum he packed in this year. I have confidence in the team though.
