SOunds like you are more intrested in arguing with Safesex than you are with making valid points.
J Strauss provides many more options that the incumbent number 8 for the Boks does.
Strauss, at 2m tall is quick enough, strong enough and has a fantastic workrate for the full 80!
He has the skill attributes which a good number 8 requires.
He may not be flashy, but neither were many of the great Boks that have come and gone in the past 20 years.
I say, the best way to shut people like you up is to give him a run!
Let him show us who is right and who is wrong.
Lets put him in a half decent side....
I bet my entire salary that he would consistently get a 7 - 8 out of ten after each game!
Unlike Spies who puts in a 7 out of ten every 20 games!!
Give him a chance (10 tests is a good barometer) and lets comment after that!
I bet you he will have an incredible impact on the side!
HE also commands respect from his opposition!
...and as a captain, don;t you think he looks great sipping on the sponsors energy drink during the post match interview? He makes it look so natural!
Only Keagan Daniel comes close to him in that department!
