This does not happen often, but I wish I were wrong. Reading Leon’s post is very depressing, especially thinking that P Divvy is confident to retain the RWC with the geriatric Jake White troop. Look, they’re not all bad. We have a couple of great (old) athletes. And England did pretty well in 2003 with their ageing squad mind you. So in anticipation of Snor’s announcement tomorrow, I will NOT post my prediction of the squad. Surprisingly, it is similar to the previous post, but that does not reflect on PDV’s predictability. Honest. However, my ideal match 22 will be:

  1. Guthro Steenkamp
  2. Bismarck du Plessis
  3. Jannie Du Plessis
  4. Victor Matfield
  5. Bakkies Botha
  6. Schalk Burger
  7. Heinrich Brussow
  8. Pierre Spies
  9. Fourie du Preez
  10. Morne Steyn
  11. Bryan Habana
  12. Jean de Villiers
  13. Jaque Fourie
  14. Gio Aplon
  15. Frans Steyn
  16. Tendai Mtawarira
  17. Schalk Brits
  18. CJ vd Linde
  19. Danie Rossouw
  20. Francois Hougaard
  21. Patrick Lambie
  22. Juan de Jongh
Yep, I’ll rather go for another Schalk than John Smit. Brits has enjoyed a phenomenal season at Saracens. He can scrum, and can easily be mistaken for a loosie. Oh, one can only dream…
