S15: Rassie sweats as the Boks begin to fall

Rob Houwing, Sport24 Super Chief

Cape Town – shoulder injury to SA rugby player of the year
Peter-Steff Doit It must have been in front Springbook
Instructor Racy Erasmus After watching Super Rugby Derby between the old
Yariv the Stormers and Bulls in Newlands on Saturday.

Was the most significant "cloud" in another dazzling fall
In the afternoon, though there was another reason to see wrinkles
Erasmus as another stalwart test, outside the center of Caryl, also left
The battle is lively enough before it's over – the Stormers deserve it
Who live 24-23 – with a lower foot or ankle problem.

Details on the two obstacles of the Boks (if they even end up being on
All) are only expected to be known at the beginning of the new week.

It's unusual for someone like Do-Toit, as hard as the Tic-customer, to
Leave the park prematurely (after an embarrassing aerial collision and then
Falling to the court in the second half) for reasons that are not routine
Substitute, while Kriel is usually someone blessed with consistently
Good fitness and avoiding personal accidents.

They sport 86 test appearances were part of the first team
Furniture for most of the time of Erasmus responsible so far.

Others – naturally, including their respective coaches and franchisees – will
Be hoping that hopefully possible layoffs in both cases are saved
To a minimum: Boks start their run into the vital business of the RWC
2019 in Japan at the end of September by entertaining Australia on
Shortened Rugby Championship at Ellis Park on July 20 … just under
Three months away.

Even before the recent north-south confrontation,
Erasmus will have concerns about another Springbok, Warren Whiteley,
In recent days.

The eighth can not go against the Crusaders
36-10 drubbing at Christchurch to finish their Australian tour because of
Damage to the knee, whose severity has not yet been confirmed.

Whitley's condition is relevant because at worst
This event is du twit – such as Revelation since specializing as
Blind closure – requires a long absence and even misses 2019
Test activity, moving Dwayne Vermeulen strong to not 7 with popular
Skills and leader lions being deployed at eight would be a realistic option
For the Box.

Also on Saturday, the Bulgarians are strong and reliable
In the middle, Burger Odendaal was forced to leave the derby in the air
To end, the potential to leave the losers (and now no more conference
Leaders) with distress and difficulty in their next trip, against
Waratahs at Loftus next Saturday – an important bounce back event for

It seems that the Stormers always want it more in this game,
Perhaps also motivated by the memories of the first round 40-3
Dubbing in Pretoria.

Acting Bulls Captain Hundra Pollard
Later admitted that the hosts would hit them hard and decisive
The first 20 minutes, and the Wilders did not succeed
Re-catch an adequate foothold after it despite staunchly partly in part
The Stormers areas could have been expected to dominate more clearly –
Like scrums, where Lizo Gqoboka and Trevor Nyakane put in admirably
Guards by force.

In a blessed event for the Capitan loyalist,
There was a spark of line-up from the Sturmers, the slippery Dayline Lids
Leading the cargo but others like the Damians – Willemse and De
Allende – also pick up all the fun round games.

Everything that the final score was misleading, as Robbie Falk did
Were not satisfied because they tried to launch ambitious long-term
A raid after the siren in pursuit of cherry point a reasonable bonus on
First and foremost, possession of the place was transferred to Bollas and Mani Libok
Spread away to try to convert that gave them, however, the
The luxury of losing bonus point are hardly worthy.

How important is this last ditch "gift" from the Stormers proving to be in the race for a knockout bunk?

It is open to intriguing speculation that the SA conference only seems
More and more like a mess of confusion, perforated by alternating
Hot and cold performances from the teams.

Even with
Jaguares due to deal with Brumbies at a later stage, closing game of
In the current round in Buenos Aires, sharks can not now be prevented
Be new leaders of the group for at least a few days.

On time
Their more refined brand of features remain close and does not exist,
Exciting men had good value for their tour, starting from a 23-15 victory
About vortas, marked with an intense physical approach, and when
They were placed under some very long periods
Garlic protection.

The Crusaders are irresistible
It seems very likely to bring little shark reward at the starting point
But if they can raise the level of focus and the rate of unified work
The more humble leaders, a week later, may be sharks
Even come back with a healthy 2/3 of the journey and be right at home
The races for a victory in a conference in a few weeks …
