Is it even worth releasing the top boks to play in the currie cup this season?

After long drawn out Southern Hemisphere competitions I wonder if it’s even worth releasing the Starting boks to play in the Currie Cup. Meyer has been hamstrung by all the injuries to key players such as JP, Bismark, Burger, Juan to name a few. Any more injuries would surely make it much harder for the coach to field a competitive team for the end of year tour and return leave the players with little time to recover. Would it not be better if we gave these guys a break and allow them to come back stronger for the end of year tour? The question is who should be omitted from the currie cup and who should be included.

the logic is sound but you are dealing with an illogical coach

I agree Kingcorn Meyer should select his sqaud and they should not play in Currie Cup. They cant play in Currie Cup and then tour. They have already been mismanaged and are running on empty.

world chump Meyer has no say apart from persausion in whether the Boks play in nthe Currie Cup. The franchise coaches are likely to think of their own intersts and play the Boks. Hence our need to get the Bok squad centrally contracted etc.

WP can really benefit from having decent locks - they lost line out throw after line out throw last week.   Vermeulen would be a big improvement amongst the loosies.  As to the backline - De Jongh is useless and De Villiers need a rest - so does Habana.   

The Sharks can do with Burden and the props as well.   Lambie would help as flyhalf - Viljoen was atrocious in that position and Bosman not really better.   The loosies will be improved by Coetzee and Alberts.

The Bulls was better off with Kirchner not around - they need some improvement in the backline though.

The Lions can do with Taute and Mapoe, but they need Jantjies like another hole in the head.

Coenie need some game time and Strauss would help as a hooker.
