I don't believe it, Snyman on the blindside wing this time and Percy still
there.  Will someone phone Du Plessis and tell him once and for all

A. Percy isn't good enought
B. Snyman is NOT  a winger

AAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please tell me, please, please. someone.... what makes this ***ing
Montgomery keep his place in the ***ING TEAM!!!!!!! ahead of
Mulder????!!!!!!!!!

Why???!!!!
He is shit in the WP team as well!!!!!!!!!!

Has Carl du Plessis, conquerer  of the mighty Tonga, lost his ***y
mind??!!!!!
Did he ever have one??!!

And if Montgomery scores one good try in the next 5 years I suppose it
will be used to justify his continued inclusion!

Must we watch Bunce once again running over and around
Montgomery???!!!!

As for Joost. We must now resign ourselves that he will be in the Bok
team for the next 5 years notwithstanding.
He will be picked because he is: "Joost van der Westhuisen, the best
scrum half in the world."

And we will see Justin Marshall running past Joost van der Westhuisen,
the best scrum half in the world.

We will see the NZ flanks tackle the bejesus out of Joost van der
Westhuisen, the best scrum half in the world.

We will see Joost van der Westhuisen, the best scrum half in the
world's kicks being read and either charged down or caught by the
defence.

We will see Joost van der Westhuisen, the best scrum half in the
world, missing his backline with 1/2 his passes.

We will see Joost van der Westhuisen, the best scrum half in the
world, dither on all the good balls before he either gets tackled or
rolls it out to the hapless De Beer.

Someone pointed out today that this past Saturday Os du Randt at times
had to cover at the back of the maul for Joost van der Westhuisen, the
best scrum half in the world, and that his passes to De Beer was
generally better and more accurate than that of Joost van der
Westhuisen, the best scrum half in the world.

....let us all sing the national anthem while the ship goes down.....
For those not in the mood, sing anything you want.

If they don't win on Saturday, and win well,  a shit storm of
unprecedented proportions will probably await them back in SA.

Does Carl du Plessis know this?

Do the players know this?

Does he know that die hard rugby fans are slowly turning away from
caring what happens to this team?

                 Good on you , Koos ! You're catching on fast. There was
time when it was more difficult to leave a Welsh international team than
it was to get into it ! We called the hangers-on "seagulls". They were
just hovering around waiting to see what scraps they could pick up.

Koos,

One of these days you will say something I don't agree with.

I look forward to it immensely.

Despite what Joost thinks of himself Koos, he is not even the 2nd best
halfback in world rugby at present.  He may have been rated number one in
1995 but he hasn't been since.  I've got no problems with Gregan being
rated as such although I might disagree.  This season even Matt Dawson has
made Joost look decidely average.  Maybe Joost should keep his mouth shut
and let his game do the talking.  Roll on Eden Park.
