P divvy announced a strong team to face the “look like a lock, run like a wing” Fijians. Unlikely that the Boks will go down against them, but we said the same thing against Wales.

A big surprise is Bakkies Lazarus Botha. Last week almost had his leg amputated and now he is in the starting line up… There is also a question in my mind regarding Awkward Ndungane ahead of try scorer Francois Hougaard. Is he afraid of the Fijians hurting Hougi or does he just fancy him more as an impact player? And still no pomp man Bismarck in the starting line up. I am starting to wish someone steps on Johns Achilles.

The exciting bit is see Francois Louw and Brussouw on the field at the same time. Its even poetry on paper!
