GAMEPLAN vs the Poms
May 28, 2012, 02:26:13

I want to suggest that we don't go down the "Blue Bok" road of box-kicks, drop-kicks, kicks for territory,kicks for kicks etc. RETAIN POSSESION. We have the brutal forwards capable of mauling any side in world rugby to death and if we hold onto the ball the dangerous English backs will be reduced to tackiling Alberts and Bismark all day-good luck with that! Once we've worn them down we can release havoc on them as Geo, Lambie can run riot. If we play the slow methodical kicking game, the English will have a chance, but they cannot hang with us on the hard quick fields in SA. So lets crush them and then run them off the park!

I also wish they'd given us a warm-up game and/or that we named our squad earlier. I give the English a chance in Durbs, simply because we will be an unsettled team with a new captain.

Greetings an dwelcome Benjamin.

You echo my thoughts exactly.

Problem is will we pick the right pack, We had ten years of picking the most unphysical lock ever to represent SA in wee matfield - 107 kg. Now oaks are talking about Juandre Kruger, Spies, daniels etc etc showing they have no clue whatsoeve rabout Bok rugby and wha twe need to do.

They then expect us to dominate at forward like they expected our tight 4 to dominate when victor was trying to star in the backline. Hahahahahhahahahahaha

The simple truth is our competitive advantage lies with our pack. Foul that up and we are done for. With the talent we hav etoday we can also file a very nice backline. Truoble is ouLoubscher of the bulle has been chosen as thebackline coach. The guy is not the Super 15 bulle cioach as Slapschips Pieter Rossouw holds tha tpost. But we have t ohav e abulle man so pick loubscher.

If matfield is no tcaptain pick SFourie Du preez. if its not him is Spies. if no tspies its Morne etc etc.

I only hope I am wrong but Meyer with his 14 bulle in the sqaud and a completely bulle coaching staff, some very poor selections for his sqaud is undermining the hope I had in him. Hopefully he pulls himself together and I also hope Rassie can talk some sense into the oak - if they talk at all.
