Coenie hurt again....enough already

 If I was a family member or close friend of this young  chap, I would get him to a doctor away from the rugby community, for a second opinion.

There is something very wrong here.   Oosrhuizen's lower back was injured as a result of a tackle by Etzebeth.   However, whilst he was on the field of play the scrums were in fact shambles.   I gained the impression that Oosthuizen was reluctant to enter scrums and that caused collapse of the scrums on a continuous basis.

This could either be the psychological result of his neck injury ot alternately the effect of him not being matchfit at all.   Be it as it may  - there are serious problems here and I am sure he cannot be selected for the Springbok team under present circumstances.

 He may also not be a tighthead prop. Very few props can play on both sides of the scrum very well
