    Butch James and Pretorius are our only 2 options.

    Pretorius lights fires. SA need a player like him.

    That is not right, R.Pienaar is a Scrum-half, and that is were he should play

    I like Andre Pretorious as a player and with Steyn being a terrific super-sub. Pienaar should definitely be first choice half back. His kicking game is probably the best out of all half-backs in world rugby.

    On this years form only Butch James can really be 1st choice. Andre Pretorius hardly had any game time in the past 3 years due to injuries and he will not be 100% in the World Cup -- they shouldn't have even considdered him. Back up could have been Peter Grant - as Liefling is 1 dimensional and the Tri-nations proved it this year. Francois Steyn is a better Wing / Fullback and whilst Pienaar might be a great 10 - he hasn't been tested their properly yet on that level.

    If you go back to all the previous World Cup all the winning teams had a great 10 -- We might fall short this year.

    Best 10 in this years world cup is def Carter --- so NZ must be favourites to win

    You can't win the WC relying on only on the Flyhalf. Peter Grant is pretty one dimensional aswell. Morne Steyn made him look average the past weekend.

    pretorious is easily the bokke's best 10, experienced and cool under pressure unlike mr. james

    I don't know man, Pretorius is definitly more creative but I get the impression that he is scared. Almost like Francois Pienaar when the going gets tough he wants off the field.
