Meyer's Mission - Makes every Bull a Springbok
October 31, 2012, 15:07:06

The following Bulls have all been in the squad or have in facy played for the Springboks:-

15 - Kirchner

14 - Hougaard

13 - Engelbrecht

12 - Olivier

11 - ???

10 - Steyn

9 - Vermaak

8 - Spies

7 - Potgieter

6 - Botha

5 - Van der Merwe

4 - Kruger

3 - Kruger

2 - Ralepelle

! - Greyling

Now to find the missing players - very, very difficult - that would soon get the opportunity:-

*   Since Basson was injured and only came back - he is certain to be the enxt top choice

*   Venter - A bit on the younh side as yet

*   Spies Injured - but Arno Botha is already in the squad

*   Kruger - made the mistake of signing to play abroad.   If he stayed 100% certainty for next years squad

Did I leave anyone out?  Don't think so.   I was amazed that there were only hints about Meyer's preference for Blue Bulls players - the so-called blue-tinted specs.   Looking at the above it is definitely more than blue-tinte specs - it is an established program of getting Bulls into the green jersey.   Meyer also picked the entire Bulls support team as assistant coaches as well.

Under the cir[removed]stances it is suggested that we do not call the team the Springboks any longer - but Meyer's Blues - with in the away games the team being called Meyer's Pinks.   Springboks they are not - they constantly disgraced the Springbok tradition and name.

No - I am a Sharks supporter - with a sneaking regard for WP.
