De Villiers could be out for Samoa

June 19, 2013

In what could arguably be called good news the Bok skipper could miss the Samoa test.

The guy who kept on running into defenders with his back first could miss the Samoa test… surprisingly not because he hurt his back running into defenders… but because he injured his shoulder and rib… which is strange seeing as he never hit any defenders from the front.

In good other news Pierre Spies was also hurt, and Jannie Du Plessis may finally get some rest having also been inured…

Willem Alberts has returned to training from Monday and is looking good for inclusion this Saturday.

This incoming series has played havoc with the Boks with four selections already out long terms in Francois Hougaard, Janno Vermaak, Pieter-Steph Du Toit and Arno Botha.

Even before the series started we lost Frans Malherbe, Pat Cilliers, Duane Vermeulen, Cobus Reinach, Johan Goosen, Jaco Taute, JP Pietersen and Frans Steyn from last year!

    Geez
    Aside from Morne Steyn and Bryan Habana this is an all new Bok backline we’ll be seeing this weekend…

    Injuries are not good at all no matter your opinion of the player.

    Mugs bought this up last week that he and Alberts should be rested.

    I hope we see more attacking backline players and not crash ball merchants. They are going to need big defence this weekend.

    Beast is looking tired and Jannie too.

    Jandre does not seem to have enough mongrel either.

    I hope the ref is not kak and blind.
    Biggest worry against these thugs is the dirty stuff, every RWC we played against these pigs they have been extremely dirty bordering on insanity.

    You’re damned right hey…

    The Samoans and Tongans and Fijians treat the Bokke like it’s their job to soften us up for the All Blacks…

    Given their foul record it’s stunning none of them have been red carded playing against uys…

    Wonder if it’s the old firm of Lawrence, Barnes, Owens and Rolland refereeing them?

    The cross a Bok captain has to carry -
    never good enough.
