Moz the trouble really is public opinion. The reality is tha tbeside injuries some players need a rest and should b eleft behind as well. Meyermay be wondering how well three lossss will go down.
That aside he should play thsi one with next year in mind - in other words build his squad for the future. Rest players needing it.
Players that should be rested in my view are Beast, Jannie, Etzebeth Hpugaard, Morne, Jean, Habana and Kirchner.
Then we must look at player swho have been overplayed - eg Kitshoff.
The only other acceptable alternative is agree these players start latter in the Super 15. Next year we must thump these overated abs.!! We cant with dog tired player who have been overdoing it year after year. That Jean is still standing is remarkable. Tha tMorne imploded was bound to happen. I ask you how would Carter be playing now if he had played the matches Morne had!!!!
You cant win running on empty no matter what strategy you have. I would go for the fesh players and ones knocking on the door.
I also wonder if guys like Bakkies and Danie Rossouw could offer some assistance. - are there overseas guys to consider? CJ Stander rope him in.
