Boks place kickers doing excellently at training
October 03, 2012, 13:17:13

Lous Koen says the Bok place kickers are kicking very well in training.Morne Lambie and Frans have all been kicking above 80% in training which makes their dispalys in the tests puzzling for Koen.

Morne has been the best kicked 620 kicks at traing and managed 88% success which is in line with his test record. No wonder Meyer believe h ewould snap right.

Pienaar has done the les tamount ofgoal kicking at training. he has kicked 200 kicks and succeded with 65% the lowest average o fthe place kickers. Koen says Morne;s technique i sfantastic and beleives his problems are more mental - well that again is the old story of how this guy has been played into the ground.

Koen believes Morne will be very useful in the wet UK conditions with his tactical kicking etc.

Info  ex Busines Day.

I still think the abs used weighted balls etc at Dunedin?  Now they are blaming the strange behaviour of the balls on playing under cover etc. Very, very  tricky customers the abs - you have to concede that. Hahahahahahahaha

Where did you get this from and what was the date?   Frans is out with a serious ankle injury - how can he continue kicking at goal..   Meyer said today that they are going to see this afternoon whether Goosen can start kicking at goal again - or whether his slight injury will prevent him from kicking at goal on Saturday.

Forget about your daydreaming of ball doctoring.   Cruden used the same balls and also missed a kick.   Morne's record this year was atrocious in any event - in training it may have been better - but  the problem is probably psychological.

 Why is Morne even kicking. He is not even on the bench.

As far as I know he is still in the squad - that is why he may still be around.  Meyer is thinking of taking him on the End-of-Year tour sncce the heavy playing conditions in England may suit his style of play
