Dont forget Bjorn Basson is good in the air aswell and can play at 15 .He is lightning quick,but he had struckle at international level before,but he is a try scoring machine.

the only reason why andre taylor is keeping cory jane out of the 15 jeresy is because Mark Hammett wants Jane to play 14 not 15, Hence why he isnt playing 15. Plus Jane is playing good rugby at 14 so he should stay there

Bjorn Basson is a fluke... I don't rate him at all. Give him the ball in space with nothing but a defender or two to beat and you'll probably get a try - the guy is lightning quick and has a good chip kick. But that's where his talents end. He is not nearly as complete a rugby player as someone like Gio Aplon - and certainly not Springbok material.
Personally I think JJ Engelbrecht is a far better wing and rugby player than Bjorn Basson... and that he will be seen as the best wing in South Africa soon. Don't argue with me - just watch that boy...

"... the barret-perenara-taylor combo is incredible, future allblacks backline coming out of the canes, again. hammett isnt nuts afterall."
jonesy2 ... I guess Hammett had enough brains to give contracts to those 3 young, extremely well coached (by Penney, Tietjens et al) players who were all standout NZU20 reps (esp when he could do it more cheaply than well established players).
Same goes for Ngatai ... though all but Barrett were already in the squad when Hammett turned up if memory serves me right.

brilliant to see so many chiefs! retallick was immense, man of that match. thought dan braid and big kev had really good games. you guys should do a bench as well, as in who the best players to come off their respective benches, eg sam cane. i really want to see big ben in a AB shirt soon, hopefully against ireland, give them a real headache, in more ways than one. the barret-perenara-taylor combo is incredible, future allblacks backline coming out of the canes, again. hammett isnt nuts afterall.

Bismarck should defintely be in. Why is Brussouw in? He get penalised on numerous occasions...Well only some of the penalties were fair...

Taylor is not keeping Cory Jane out of the No.15 Jersey. Jane stated at the start of the season that he only wants to play on the wing. Lawyered..
