    The demand for standard to be lowered are not because they are female. It is because it is lazy fucknuts trying to lower the standards. As I mentioned in my original reply women CAN achieve those standards, with ease if they work hard... Learn to read!

    I saw nothing sexist in that. He is taking the piss with women demanding to be allowed in historically male professions and then demanding to have standards lowered to accommodate them.

    The 2018 Marriott manne........ South African referee Jaco Peyper has been awarded two Tests in the forthcoming Castle Lager Rugby Championship, while three of his compatriots will also be involved as match officials. Peyper will referee the opening Test of the competition between Australia and New Zealand in Sydney, as well as the encounter between Argentina and Australia in Salta. He also has two appointments as assistant referee. Marius van der Westhuizen (AR in three matches), Rasta Rasivhenge (AR in one match) and Marius Jonker (TMO in three matches) will also be involved in the Castle Lager Rugby Championship. Meanwhile, Angus Gardner from Australia will referee two of the Springboks’ six Tests during the competition – against Argentina in Mendoza and New Zealand in Pretoria. The Springboks’ remaining four Tests will be refereed by Ben O’Keeffe from New Zealand (against Argentina in Durban), his fellow-Kiwi Glen Jackson (against Australia in Brisbane), the experienced Welshman Nigel Owens (against New Zealand in Wellington) and Jerome Garcez of France (against Australia in Port Elizabeth). World Rugby Match Officials Selection Committee Chairman Anthony Buchanan said: “With the Rugby World Cup on the horizon, we are striving to ensure that, once again, we have a top-class group of experienced officials ready to perform at the highest level in Japan 2019. “The Rugby Championship is an exciting tournament that brings with it a suitable environment for reviewing match official performances as they officiate high pressure and intense Test rugby matches. “An experienced group of match officials and TMOs have been appointed for this year’s Championship with the focus on clear and consistent decision-making from officials as teams compete for the coveted Rugby Championship title.”

    I tried to find a piece that you posted a long while back about scrumhalves. I cannot remember how exactly you described it but it was something like being a head up scrum half. In the piece you described it using the difference between Hougaard, IIRC, and Faf and how Faf was actually the one who was the head up scrum half. You ended with something like, “....looks like I have just convinced myself that Faf is the answer...”.

    If no other options go WP.

    Basically, you can see there are few alternatives too, which means Rassie can plug any hole, with just another average player. Except for Marx and Faf, there are no-one else sure of their spot on the team. No other stand-outs. If we lose any of the others they can be replaced with ease... The only real losses will actually be the two I mention (Marx + Faf)

    Some opinionated drivel from me.... Actual Reasons for being selected and / or general comments: (alternatives in brackets) Willie le Roux: Hoping for individual brilliance... (Either great, or greatly kak!) Makazole Mapimpi: Hoping for individual brilliance? Lukhanyo Am: No real idea (All 13s being equally crap, select a quota?) Andre Esterhuizen: SA's consistent selection of crashballer at 12? Aphiwe Dyantyi: Hoping for individual brilliance? Handre Pollard: At the moment the best option, but still lacks in terms of taking control Faf de Klerk: Let's hope for individual brilliance. Warren Whiteley: Must try to keep shit together... Siya Kolisi (captain): Quota player, quota captain, WP (Cyle Brink?) Francois Louw: Try to keep level head, if shit falls apart... (Why not Kwagga?) Pieter-Steph du Toit: WP Eben Etzebeth: WP (RG Snyman?) Frans Malherbe: WP (Someone breathing???) Malcolm Marx: Best in position Tendai Mtwarira: Experience, nothing else. Nothing special anymore Replacements: Bongi Mbonambi WP, Quota, being talked up in press by coach to justify selection (Akker vd Merwe?) Steven Kitshoff: Lost his edge since becoming a Bok. Complacent? Thomas du Toit: There is nothing else it seems??? Marvin Orie: Quota (Insert any name here?) Marco van Staden: Fair selection Embrose Papier: Quota Lionel Mapoe: Quota Damian Willemse: WP, "New hero" in making or some shit like that!? True international level players... Maybe one day

    Probably more likely to get a yellow than to get over the advantage line.

    If you are the captain you are the captain. If you can't hold your place you get dropped, end of. However I have never seen a captain chucked because of injury when he can come back.

    I know that the team sheet says that Kolisi is the captain but it would be interesting to know who is actually captaining the side.

    Pretty much as expected but I would have made Eben prove his fitness. Orie is a surprise on the bench. Erasmus has finally found out that Kolisi is too slow for open side. Still only 3 starters from SA’s best team. Has any Incumbent Bok captain been treated as poorly as Warren?

    The way in which it is presented comes across as extremely sexist in its approach from the onset. While there are factual difference in terms of strengths and weaknesses, properly trained individual (men or women) can fulfill combat duties, if they wish to do so. Gender does not need to be an excuse... For me that is a crap video, because women CAN get to those levels and sometimes with ease... So its not a female thing by a lazy human thing... The one fitness test they speak of, with 52 push-ups in 2 minutes, 45 sit-ups in two minutes.... hmmmm.... we have players with us that can do it in ONE minute. The people who complain about the standards are therefore just to lazy to work to achieve their goals. The way he come across in this video appears to indicate that he overdosed on red pills!

    I often wonder why they wait to literally 48 hours before the whistle to announce the team, surely all week they have been training with the starting line up

    I hope he can produce the goods, he has it tougher than any coach ever has, before there have been quotas, but it was a pretty loose requirement, now there is no wiggle room. Not going to be easy,
