    Sad news for Juan, I agree that he needs to be with his family. Really glad how PdV responded, top class.

    Jean Deysel, now's your chance...

    Very sad for Juan. Not a disaster for the Boks in terms of rugby because for the last couple of seasons Juan hasn't been our best blindside flank. I agree that Deysel is very good but I'd really love to see Francois Louw or Dewald Potgieter wearing the no. 7 for the Boks. I must say we are quite blessed with loose-forwards. We have more then 10 loose-forwards that are of international standard. Putting Francois Louw in between Burger and Spies would create a fantastic balance, because Spies is more for the running and Schalk is more for his defence. Put in Francois Louw who is fantastic at the break down and you've got a loose trio that has all the bases covered. Great depth for SA rugby

    But when Brussouw comes back from injury I still highly rate 6. Brussouw 7. Burger 8. Spies. That's a fantastic combo.
