Release of Players from squad

After release of 4 players from the squad to play for their provincial teams, who else should be released from Meyer's squad.
The first names to surface are Kirchner, Steenkamp, Pienaar and perhaps also Kruger and Jannie du Plessis. The replacements should in reality be the following:-
Du Toit, SP Marais, Malherbe (if he is fit to play) and Labuschagne should be brought into the squad. Obviously Fourie du Preez would be included as well. However, Meyer would not do that - since it would mean he had to play with new players - some at least on the bench.
Our loosie combination is very poor and will be our downfall again in especially the AB test. You cannot enter a game with an immobile combination and expect wonders - last year in Soweto we suffered badly as a result. For instance the loosies last year in Soweto made 11 tackles and missing 2. That whilst the AB loosies made a total of 31 tackles. And our ball carries by our loosies was a disgrace in bad taste in the said Soweto test..
