    This is the most settled Bok side I've seen for a long time. All our lists so far, are reasonably similar, with the exception of a few back line tweaks.

    Pietersen I was skeptical about. But he performed reasonably well against England, after a not too impressive showing vs. Samoa. Steyn I'd want in the squad, just because. James at 12 for his physicality, as opposed to at 10...I don't find he controls the game as much as a flyhalf should. Ruan is young, but the Boks would be guaranteed more than a few clean linebreaks with him at standoff. Smit and Os for their experience...same for Skinstad. 4-7 is deadly.

    How can you put Pienaar at flyhalf, James at inside and steyn at outside center?

    Pienaar played brilliantly at flyhalf against Connacht. Plus Du Preez is already my first choice for halfback. I'm not a huge fan of James at 10 to be honest...Steyn, can play anywhere I think.

    what t f are you guys on about van heerden...the most consistant 7 in the world cup was Juan Smith! Never see him miss a beat, and he's probably physically the most complete no. 7 in the world. (more length than McCaw, come lineout time) He's definitely Jake's go -to guy when he selects his loose trio, reminds me of another iron, called Andre Venter...their play is very similar, hard working, and good ball carriers.
