  1. Don’t follow SA rugby closely enough to make a meaningful comment but on the basis that in the Premiership last season Willie le Roux was the best FB and Faf de Klerk the best SH I’m guessing they are going to be a formidable challenge !

  2. As a Springbok fan, pretty happy with that team – only question mark would be around Mbonambi, who has hardly played this season – but I guess there was no one else really, with BdP and Marx injured, and Strauss retired.

    Excited to see what that backline can do!
