Look, I'm all for getting the season off to a good start, but PDV is making the exact same mistake he made last year. http://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/Matfield-to-replace-Bekker-20100602 Johannesburg - Springbok kingpin Victor Matfield could be heading for Cardiff today to cover for the injury to lock Andries Bekker ahead of Saturdayâ€™s one-off Test against Wales. Gallery: Boks train in Cardiff A decision will only be taken this morning, but Matfield has been informed to be on standby as Bekker struggles to shake off an injury he sustained in the Vodacom Super 14 final last weekend. While he was given the all-clear on Sunday, he has not trained in the two sessions the Boks have had in Cardiff thus far and sources close to the team say Matfield has been asked to ready himself for a possible trip. Matfield was supposed to have a week off after leading his team to their third Super 14 title in four years, but may be packing his bags sooner than he thinks. Team doctor Craig Roberts told local media Tuesday that he had high hopes that Bekker would be fit. â€œHe is struggling but we have a lot of time to get him right.â€ Springbok coach Peter de Villiers told SuperRugby on Kyknet Monday night he would only make a decision Tuesday night on the fitness of Bekker, as well as Dewald Potgieter and Juan de Jongh, who were also struggling with injuries. That decision seems to be delayed to Wednesday morning when more clarity would be given. â€œThe three of them are doubtful, but their chance of playing is bigger than not having them,â€ he told local media Tuesday. Now, what my problem is is that he's trying to force these guys who have played 15 games of Super Rugby and have injury niggles into the team straight away. This is the root cause of long term injuries which then obviously causes games to be lost. Now, no disrepect to Wales, but this really is not an important match. Wales have only beaten the Boks once ever! Bekker, Matfield, Dewald Potgieter and Juan de Jongh should not be playing this game as they have just come off a long season and are struggling with minor injuries. This is when you rest the players! But no, the exact same thing will happen as last year. We'll start off really well winning all the time, but by the end of the year, the few first-choice guys that aren't injured are going to be too exhausted to play properly. This will then result in yet another disasterous end of year tour just like last year. PDV really doesn't learn. I'd rather lose a game to Wales that doesn't really mean that much (again no offence) then lose all the games on the end of year tour. Give the guys some rest!
