How difficult is it to select a Bok squad?

Its simple, you select the worthy incumbents and you fill the rest of the spots with players who represent the future. What you never do is select a bunch of washed up hasbeens as your back-up players - why on earth would you do that? Where is the sense or logic in these selections? How on earth can one hope to progress and build if your back-ups should be chewing their cud in the pastures?
Hell we have a core in Lambie, JP, Mvovo, Hougaard, Pienaar, Beast, Strauss, Chiliboy, Jannie, Etzebeth, Louw, Alberts and Vermeulen.......thats 13 players.
Add to this core, the future in Ludik, Rhule, Mapoe, v/d Heever, Taute, JJ, Jordaan, Whitehead, F.Venter, Jantjies, Reinach, Groom, Kitshoff, M.v/d Merwe, Malherbe, F.Kirsten, D.Fourie, Steph du Toit, Bresler, JA Marais, Willemse, Daniel, CJ Stander, A.Botha, J.Strauss and Coetzee..................not to mention the return from injury of Habana, Frans, Jan Serfontein, Goosen, Coenie, Bismark, Bekker, Brussouw, Kolisi and Elstadt.
Its that simple
