Williams and Watson dropping out of the 23 completely!!! I guess the only potential further change is if Biggar fails his HIA.

As ever you can see the sense in the selection calls given the type of game you use Murray’s experience and bring Price on from the bench. Mako was brilliant when he came on so no issues there, and Harris adds some muscle to the backs.

Naming a 15 a week before KO means the other team can anticipate and plan accordingly with plenty of time.

Much better team from a Bok perspective this time around. I like Koch, not exactly sure why he has fallen so far down the pecking order.

It's clear that tactically under Rassie and Jacques, there is only going to be one way - I don't agree with it, but they transformed a team of losers into world champs. I think it sells a lot of the players short and might not be the best way to win all the time, but they've chosen their style. They're a lot smarter than the fans (me included) and there's a good chance they'll continue to get success. I can't understand how Cornal Hendricks, Johan Goosen and Marcell Coetzee for example aren't even in the squad. Am really strong on defence and de Allende can break the line from time to time, but that centre combination couldn't be more dull to me. Goosen is the ultimate utility back and would be gold dust in this series. I'm not accusing them of being Heynecke Meyer, but when there are quality players in the pool, it is a little unfortunate to always overlook them.

Snyman and Vermuelen are massive losses as well - two guys that up the physicality hugely
