|Bakkies Botha is probably the most valuable player|
but the Bokke will be fine without him on Sunday.
Bryan Habana, Victor Matfield and Bakkies Botha are the only “first choice” players who will probably not start the game against the Red Dragons of Wales on Sunday. Where’s the crisis in that?
Don’t get me wrong these lads are very valuable but we are playing Wales. As much as they are said to be our biggest challenge during the group stages, these guys only beat us once in a hundred and five years.
Most of the players who were injured on the day of the Bok world cup squad announcement are ready and will be in action on Sunday. Francois Steyn and Patrick Lambie took a full part in training without any negative reaction to the injuries they suffered in the 18-5 victory over New Zealand in Port Elizabeth a few weeks ago.
The South African the team consists of thirty players and not just three players so let’s have more than just a little faith in the boys that will be on the pitch on Sunday and know that we will beat Wales.
