Sorry, this story is unavailable
@Stellenbosched2 Hmmm good point but then he doesn't know much about the game in general and he must be the only Australian that rates Colin Meads as "a great". He trying to compare Super players of this week with exceptional players of past decades, the man's an idiot.

I think there is something wrong with my computer monitor because i think I just saw trinats list McCaw as one of the greats....
Posted 09:46 31st May 2012
I think Trinats point is that not a single Bok belongs in the list of former greats......

Trinats - and your point is????????????

good selections. keegan daniel just amazes me. far too small to be a number 8 yet he does it somehow and makes a huge impact. just shows that its not always what the scales say that matters. deserves a chance at springboks you would have thought. thought afeaki in his comeback game could have gotten the 3 spot.

Missing Marcel Coetzee's name. Is there anybody that can keep up with him? Schalk Burger move over.
Posted 06:07 30th May 2012
Can everyone please note, that there are 2, yes 2 Force players in the team. I have screen printed and added to my scrapbook.

There were plenty of outstanding performances in the Chiefs vs Bulls match. No SBW in this XV? Ask the Crusaders why their back line is not functioning as well as it was last year.... the simple answer is the absence of SBW.
This selection highlights the difficulty of picking a XV when the quality of some of the matches has been outstanding.

Great team!! I just feel that Gio Aplon should of been fullback in this team,he really did stand up this weekend despite the stormers loss...otherwise I'm loving it! SAVEA IS COOKING,dam I'm happy I'm a allblacks fan now!

Strange list, in that it's mostly no big names, but good to see.
Apart from Pocock, would any of these players start in a world XV ?
When you look at names like the greats of rugby, Horan, Lomu, Eales, Lynagh, Fitzpatrick, Johnson, Campese, Blanco, BOD, McCaw, Farr-Jones, Meads, Hayman, Leonard, Brooke. This team of the week wouldn't even get into the oldies half.
Posted 23:57 29th May 2012
I think SBW, Messam, Latimer and Cruden should be there or at least get a mention...but then again I dedn't watch ALL of the games to know how the others did.
Posted 22:50 29th May 2012
I thought the Beast put in a good performance, surprised not to see him included.
Posted 18:41 29th May 2012
I think Marcell Coetzee outplayed Pocock this past weekend
Posted 17:47 29th May 2012
Only one from the Chiefs / Bull game?
Posted 15:44 29th May 2012
Yep. Thought so.
