Look I have daily problems with my job and every now and then thinking why do I do this but I can honestly say I rather take all that my job can throw at me and more before I want Rassie Erasmus job.
The poor guy has not even selected his first side yet and he are already on the backfoot.
In one weekend Erasmus has lost one of the best performing players in this years Super Rugby through injury in Lood De Jager.
On the list of maybes or definitely out we have Whiteley, Etzebeth, Jaco Kriel, Marx and Lambie.
The there is uncertainty about fitness an availability of Malherbe, Ross Cronje, Bismarck, Vermeulen, Frans Steyn, Serfontein and Willie Le Roux.
Maybe these players are not part of Erasmus plans but we can expect that he will want more experience in his team to face England than pure new blood.
The last few months I starting to see that people are not too worried that we do not have a certain captain yet, which is a huge worry for me.
Whiteley plays the most important part in this rebuild of 18 months we have before we go to Japan.
To bring a Vermeulen into the frame from France just to gel the players as a captain will not work in my view.
Kolisi is so out of form at the moment that he made Tiger Woods comeback two years ago look great.
Pollard is not certain of his position yet and to make him the captain of the Springboks is a risk.
Neither the Sharks or Lions captain now is good enough which makes Whiteley being ready for England as one of the most important milestones for Erasmus.
It is an close book on what Erasmus plans are on how many overseas players will be part of his group.
Also sounds are being made how good Kriel (for the Bulls) and De Allende (for the Stormers) have been in the midfield.
The first question for me is are they actually good enough at international level?
Secondly will they be better under Erasmus as what they were under Coetzee the past two seasons?
Stats in Super Rugby can only take you so far…the player need to be good enough at international level and able to evolve and that is question on De Allende and Kriel I can not answer.
We have serious problems at nine and it would be interesting to see if Faf comes back into the frame or will Erasmus go with the current options in SA.
There are so many questions that we want to be answered and will only see when Erasmus name his group.
And as they say in the Dragon Den….” For that reason I will not want invest ” well for now that is…
