A poll re Meyer in respect of 2013
January 07, 2013, 08:52:23

We have seen many an unforuntate, uniformed and disparaging reamarks about Meyer. Some back peddaling i salready happening as in the case of Mike and Sharkbok. It tim et opu t apeg in th eground.

A - 2013 will see the Bok splay bette rugby than in 2012.

B - No th eBoks will remain on the same level. Meyer i sa one trick pony and the boks will plod along a sbefore

C - Meyer is a piss poor coach who makes shockingly bad selections and doesnt understand the modern came. Hence the Boks will be worse in 2013.

A = better. B = the same and C= worse.     Very simple

Now lets place our bets gentlemen and rooitwit!

My call is the Boks will be better = A

Beeno

It is actually unfair to conduct a poll like that before the Super 15 season and before we know what direction Meyer is going to take in  player selection.   A poll would be based on Meyer's performance in 2012 and may do him a disservice.

However, there is no way that a poor showing by the Boks than they had in 2012 would not be a major requirment and I believe Meyer would fit into A as well - but that obviouslywill depend on the upgrading of backline and attacking coaching and his team selection. He did admit he made selection errors in 2012 and that in itself is a good sign

Mike we have had a test season of rugby to assess Meyer so its NOT really any more unfair than any prediction is.unfair.

I am pleased to see you have back peddaled to an A.  Hahahhaha - the light is dawning slowly!

Wonder if ou snapster will do the same.  He is in an awkward spot! If he is consisten he will score a C for Meyer. But surely even ou snapster cant be that dumb! ROTFLROTFLROTFL

A but not by much yet, small improvement, but it wil be incremental, next year will be better still.

Heynecke will as with when he coached the bulls learn with time and improve. Historically that is what he does. He will also make alsot of people unhappy, as he wan't to win and is a pragmatist, so Winning in style while heynecke is coach. Forget it, the boks won't play flashy rugby, they will gind it.

Ek I take it that is an A then

If so we have three A' s for the much maligned coach.   A significant about turn is taking place methinks! Folk are coming around at last and the light is dawning! Light Bulb
