    Steinhoff...........

    A few R1.50's might give a reasonable return...or not. I'm tempted too.

    Vlag, I get what you are saying and I know that injury layoff of almost the whole season will take it's toll, but I get a bit agitated by repeated insinuations that Eben is getting picked on reputation only, or because the coaches are biased in favour of WP players. I agree that there were dips in his form, as with all players, but he has a proven track record. This is starting to have the makings of a Beeno-Matfield-banjo-tune.

    Lol, moving the posts again I see. I asked you repeatedly who is better than a fit Eben. The best you came up with is Mosterdt...a 5. I'm saying a fit Eben is the best 4 in the country.

    I don't let others decide what I must think and believe...and you are deliberately twisting the issue. Are you actually saying a fit Eben should be discarded and Mosterd should be picked as Bok 4? Not even you can be that daft.

    Springboks 2018

    Mostert is a 5... and you detest WP, so comparing my statement with the "race card" is plain silly.

    First bold: Yes, that is a part of his game he can work on, but there is much more to his game than those ball carries. Hies open field tackles are better than most loosies. Second bold: Entitlement or perceived entitlement?

    That goes without saying, every player should prove their form and fitness after injury, but there is a reason why experience is held in such high regard by all the top coaches.

    No, I agree that all players' form fluctuate. I'm saying that Eben's form has consistantly been the best in the country over 6 years and that he should be picked for the Boks when fit. You are apparently saying he should not be picked ahead of whoever will be the flavour of the day when Eben is fit again. I have repeatedly asked you who is clearly better, but you have deliberately ignored that question. It looks like you are hell bent on having an argument against the selection of probably the most consistent Bok over the last 4 years. Perhaps its your provincialism preventing you from seeing the big picture.

    The "gone backwards" is your opinion. Form fluctuates and fitness levels too. Most of the time a less than 100% form Eben is better than the next in line player. I ask again, who is clearly better?

    Springboks 2018

    Nope, Meyer predominantly picked Eben during his tenure as Bok coach and you can't call that a provincial bias pick. AC just continued and added the captaincy because Whitely was injured. What other 4 is clearly better?

    Springboks 2018

    The coach said he played like a blindside, but if you watched the match, it was clear that he played openside. You did not ask how good he played.
  20. DbDraad

    Springboks 2018

    He is playing flank and is the captain. No.6 normally plays openside flanker. Some SA coaches rather play their flankers left and right, but up till now Kolisi mostly played openside. I thought you watched the match?
  21. DbDraad

    Springboks 2018

    Well, when he is fit and playing, he has consistently the best 4 in the country for the last 6 years.
  22. DbDraad

    Springboks 2018

    Nope, I did not say that. I said the fact that people agree with a statement does not make it right...fools never differ. In the case of Etzebeth, I believe that when fit, he is one of very few automatic pics. I will put Marx in the same box as Eben.
  23. DbDraad

    Springboks 2018

    That does not make it right. Lots of people get it wrong all the time.
  24. DbDraad

    Springboks 2018

    Ja right, typical loose statement. Probably the best new Bok in the last 7 years and you compare him with Kolisi. Flaunting your provincialism.

    To get you worked up. They weren't picked to play now, were they?
