Let's assume it's as advertised by Gavin Rich:
Etzebeth, Kruger, Coetzee, Alberts....Sussspies(die Slim).
Where is the leadership in that group, where is the mongrel, where the experience. Some of this was unavoidable with Bakkies and Victor going. And I rate young Marcel Coetzee.....but given how his mates did in the U 20s, one has concerns. With two new locks, the tigerish Brussouw could have added a lot. Are we better off with Coetzee than Brussouw? I doubt it....Coetzee is a heady player, but is he physically up to tests at this stage.
We have all talked a lot about Aplon and de Jongh, but the absence of Brussouw may be a bridge too far.
