Should Meyer select more overseas based boks in his end of year tour?
October 19, 2012, 14:53:11

 I know the media has been going on about all of the rugby that has been played this season and that the plaeyrs are in desperate need of a rest as wear and tear is starting to show.

I wonder whetehr Meyer could perhaps select the bulk of his starting line up from over seas boks that can still produce a winning team.

We have the likes of 

Gary Bothy
Schalc Brits
Guthrow Steenkamp
Heinke van der Merwe
Bakkies Botha
Johan Muller
Francious Louw
Joe van Niekerk
Ruan Pienaar

Fourie Dupreez
Jacque Fourie
Danie Roussouw

All of whom can add value to the Springboks and ensure that we have a winning touring team but at the same time rest our key springboks for next season.

If these guys are playing well they could help out perhaps.

Gary Bothy (Better hooker than Chilli when he left here)
Schalk Brits
Guthrow Steenkamp (He was a loss to us)
Bakkies Botha (Defintely if he is fit enough)

Francious Louw (Obviously)
Ruan Pienaar (particulary in NH conditions)

Jacque Fourie (Dont think his contract allow shim to play for Boks?)
Danie Roussouw

No we dont need to take steps backwards as all these players are past it, but for Louw and Pienaar.
