Well since there is no rugby on I would like to make a national team structure proposal from playing staff down to the skills coach. I only have enough knowledge about South African rugby so can't really do it with any other country.

Feel free to do this for your country.

Who do you think will win a game between the following (restricted to starting lineups to free up players for a second team)

The world Champion Springbok starting lineup consisting of
15. Le Roux
14. Kolbe
