Man for man, I’d say as follows: 1. Beast/kits v Vuni/marler = SA 2. Bongi/Marx v George/Dickie = SA 3. Malherbe/Koch v Syncler/Cole = England/Tie 4. Etsebeth v Lawes = SA 5. v Itoje = Eng 6. Kolisi v Curry = Tie 7. PSDT v Underhill = SA 8. Vermeulen v Vuni = SA 9. Faf v Youngs = SA 10. Pollard v Farrell = Tie 12. DDA v Tuilagi = Tie 13. Am v Slade = Tie 11. Mapimpi v May = England 14. Kolbe v Watson = SA 15. WLR v Daly = SA Take all the emotion of win over ABs out of it and SA got the better side. Look curry and itoje are good, but even if they win there positions – SA got the better team. I personally wouldn’t pick curry over kolisi. The Kar er was one of best players in world in 2017 and going to become an absolute talisman leader for boks. Maybe the best captain ever – watch. But that video made me laugh – funny buggers Special shoutout to Am. 99% of players would have went for it themselves and the chance that he would have been tackled short was real. @Timeo: 100%. I was not sold on Am prior to the WC, but he got better and better every game. And was phenomenal in the final. @Bekke: He is like a Michael Du Plessis, greta thinker of the game and a rugby brain… Rassie must have an urgent plan to further build this great team, especially with the retirements. My English colleagues are already talking up the revenge games for the British Lions in 2021. @Bekke: He has already started don’t you wort Worry I mean Timeo You not wrong. Clever player. Hope he develops even more. Kolisi was maybe one of best players in world in 2017 and def best player of boks. Serfontein was the only other one who stood out. That was a big loss. He should be brought back into fold for Lions. Frans Steyn a bit too many pies, but def a good move for this RWC. Comments are closed.
