    Fairly good looking side… although from the little I’ve seen Taute won’t be threatened by Kamana…

    Don’t rate Cilliers at all… far too lightweight…

    Going to be interesting to see just what the opening 22 will be…

    That Pretoors injury going to hurt them…

    Biggest mistake in that side is Waylon Murray.
    Should be replaced with a centre ASP.

    Nah he should just receive the ball sideways and he’ll be dynamite!
