    I am working on a project, you guys have helped me out working out Englands shirt numbers in the past, so I was hoping you could help me do the same for South Africas team? Thanks in advance!

    Same as above. I'd like to add some depth though.

    In SA we number our openside flanks 6 while the rest of the world do 7 and visa versa.

    Damian Willemse has been playing at 15 for the few SA caps he has had but he plays at 10 and 15 for WP / Stormers and my guess would be that all teams will look to play him at 10 more and more. That's a prediction though not current reality.
