After last weeks performance the Grand Slam champions Wales have alot to prove. The Springboks looked very organised and played effective rugby against their out-classed opponents, Wales. Having a new coaching staff, 10 changes to the team that won the WC last year and reverting back to the 'old' rules for the 1st time this year, the Boks looked unaffected and stood up the verbal threats coming from the Welsh camp with a convincing 26 point victory on Saturday, 43-17. The general concensus across Welsh and Saffa blogs, forums and newspapers were that the Boks simply looked stronger, faster, fitter and more 'streetwise'. For the first time in his coaching term with Wales people are doubting Gatland's tactics, doubting the Welsh team, and NH rugby in general. The Boks had an average on 21 international caps, while Wales had an average of 38. The difference is this... http://www.keo.co.za/2008/06/09/southern-h...e-to-hold-sway/ People can call this arrogant or whatever, you can sugar coat these facts as much as you want but much was said on the field on Saturday and this will be shown again in the game this weekend. Personally I'm looking forward to the game this weeked, as it's anyone's guess (AGAIN) what team PdV will possibly play. My bet is he'll probably play the strongest possible side to get some combinations and partnerships going. My pick: 15 - Jantjies 14 - Chavhanga 13 - Steyn 12 - De Villiers 11 - Habana 10 - Grant/James 9 - Januarie 8 - Kankowski 7 - Smith 6 - Watson 5 - Matfield 4 - Botha 3 - BJ Botha 2 - Smit 1 - van der Linde 16 - du Plessis 17 - BEAST!!! 18 - Rossouw 19 - Bekker 20 - Pienaar 21 - Ndungane 22 - Grant/James Admitedly this isn't the strongest 15 but I think he'll probably mix it up again. Not too sure about who the replacement backs are gonna be. I wish Bobo wasn't in the squad... he can only cover 13, and it not even that good at that. If Percy doesn't start he won't be on the bench IMO.
