I am sure that Burger, apart from a niggle with his calf, is well rested both physically and mentally and is raring to play.

Get well soon Schalk!  Please dont take any note of disreputable sharkies like muncher and ou maaaikie who want you retired as soon as possible for very obvious reasons. Others like snapster probably also want you gone lest you heap loads of  egg on them as you did in 2011.

Beeno seeing through it all.

Skulk's past it Hasbeeno, just admit it. Japan's about the only place for him now. How many games has he actually played in the last 2 years?

You are talking rubbish here - insofar as what I said about Burger I have been possitive all along.  

*   I always wished him well in his recovery from meningitis - but pointed out that he will be weakened badly by the disease and would take months to recover his bodily strength and therefore is unlikely to be available to play before September - October.    That is really being realistic.

*   Insofar as he is concerned - I said that after virtually two years of very few games - the constant postponing of his return to playing is bothering me - and I did query it  if he will really return to play Super 15 rugby.   He was first to return in July 2012 - then a further knee operation in June last year, because the first operation did not restore all the damage.   Return delayed till January 2013.   Then bulletins every 14 days - delaying his return by weeks.  Then the further operation on his calf muscles - then meningitis.   Now he is out for at least another 4 to 6 months.  What next?  Question is - does the info on his return not raise serious questions on your part too?

*    I was very clear on his selection for the Springbok team - he must show form and proof that he is selectable,   Also a realistic requirement.

It is only Mozart and yourself that support selection of players on reputation - I don't do so.
