While some are all...

excited about Meyer's new inclusions, I'm not. Meyer's Bulls fixation was sickening and he's only now starting to make the selections that was obvious to many in this forum.

It's also obvious  that WooliBulli Kirchner is not Test standard, I guess it will take awhile before it  registers with Meyer. Pienaar, is another I'd like to see replaced, he's been around for a long time and I've yet to see him make an impression or add some me he is just ok and nothing special. Jantjies is also not Test standard and I wish they'd give him a run so that he can justify his selection.

Meyer went with what he knew best to begin with. However Denny I am sure you will agree a weeding out process is underway.

Pienaar has been a bit of a disappointment to me even from the WC days.  He has another opportunity on Saturday. I also have doubts about Juandre. Has he the physicality to be an international lock. He is okay but to me not quite enough. Kirchner lacks a good head on this shoulders. I think the full back berth will be taken by Taute or even Frans eventually. Flyhalves - Goosen and Lambie. However I am not as yet ruling out Jantjes. I think criticism of him has been on the harsh side. Time will tell.

As long as we are moving forward I am happy. Frankly there is irresistable talent bubbling up and their time will come.
