Our Number 1
His full name is Retshegofaditswe ‘Tshego’ Nché and one of the most exciting young props in South Africa. He is a good in the scrum, great in the loose and can take a break like an inside centre.
Although Ox is still young and have allot to learn he can add value to the Springbok team even if only as an impact player.
The red head have given up his contract in France to come and play in South Africa and put his hand up for the Springboks. Also one of the mobile props these days but one of the stronger scrumming props in South Africa in the last few seasons.
Kitshoff came through the junior stages and have proof that he can become a great international prop.
Tendai Nihal ‘Beast‘ Mtawarira
He is the man currently with the jersey and a very strong scrumming prop but he is not one that are playing the world on fire. Beast will do what one expect from a prop, scrum, support in lineout and good in defence.
The younger props gives you more in the loose game but Beast will always give you a solid scrum.
Thomas du Toit
Thomas du Toit have been a revelation for the Sharks this year and one of the young props that have shown some great muscle in the scrums.
He is also very mobile and he has a solid defence and surely a player that can evolve in a great international prop.
Our number 3
Dreyer have been the unsung hero in the Lions scrum and does not always seemed to get the praises he deserve as a number 3 prop. Ruan is a strong in the scrums and do much of the dirty work.
His defence is not the best but surely not the worst and he is good in loose play
Frans have been on the injury list for the past two season and have not played that much rugby. He is certainly coming back to his best and a player that can be used in starting lineup and as impact player.
Like most props these days he is also mobile and have a good defence. You know what you have with Frans and he will give you that each week.
One of the the guys that have shown allot of promise but have struggled to firstly find his right position and second with his form. These two go hand in hand and there needs to be decided what side Trevor needs to go down in.
He is a guy that can be devastating in the scrums and gives you some added value in loose play. His game has not improve since he joined the Bulls but with good coaching he can be a great prop for the Springboks.
Adriaanse is a little pocket rocket as a prop and stronger than many think in the scrum. He is a great supporting prop and have some gas to burn as well.
He has been one of the better props the last two seasons.
So pick your props you have until Tuesday when we move to the locks
