Carr showed class in Bok cameo

Heyneke Meyer told the fringe Springboks to stand tall against Italy. Nizaam Carr, however, stood the tallest, writes MARK KEOHANE.

Fringe players needed exposure

Heyneke Meyer's conservative selections for the Italy Test make a mockery of taking a 36-man squad on tour, writes MARK KEOHANE.

Burger made massive contribution

Schalk Burger’s colossal performance against England was as much a lesson to South African supporters as it was the completion of an incredible rugby comeback, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day.

Brutal Boks bashed England

England, despite a three-point scoreline, were never in this Test. Kudos the bruising Boks, writes MARK KEOHANE at Twickenham.

Pollard should have stayed at 10

Not starting Handré Pollard against England represents a missed opportunity in the player’s evolution as a world-class flyhalf, writes MARK KEOHANE in London.

Arrogant Boks took a beating

The defeat in Dublin was the reality check all of South African rugby needed when it comes to the Springboks, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day newspaper.

Awful night for Boks

The Springboks were battered, bewildered and comfortably beaten ... at least the Guinness is good in Dublin, writes MARK KEOHANE at the Aviva Stadium.

Beware Irish ambush

Ireland should have the favourites tag going into Saturday's match against the Springboks, writes MARK KEOHANE.

Southern hemisphere put on show

New Zealand and South Africa’s depth was significant at Twickenham as the Barbarians ran Australia close, writes MARK KEOHANE.

Brüssow can make statement

Seven South Africans will front the Wallabies in the guise of Barbarians at Twickenham, but it’s the 40 minutes from Heinrich Brüssow that could be the most significant, writes MARK KEOHANE.

Lions’ approach was naive

There's a reason it's called ‘finals’ rugby – and the naivety of the Golden Lions lost them the Currie Cup final more than Western Province won it, writes MARK KEOHANE.

Pollard should have played 10

Starting Handré Pollard at inside centre cost the Blue Bulls a chance of reaching the Currie Cup final, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day.

Boshoff belongs with Boks

Marnitz Boshoff is too good to be ignored as a national squad member, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day newspaper.

Boks need perspective to grow

The Springboks' second-half performance at Ellis Park has to be dissected as much as the result has to be celebrated, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day.

Boks just kept on playing

The Springboks showed desire and hunger throughout a classic Ellis Park Test, writes MARK KEOHANE.
