10 overseas Boks to consider

CRAIG LEWIS identifies 10 overseas-based players who Rassie Erasmus should consider adding to his Bok plans for the 2019 World Cup.


SA rugby must move forward

Allister Coetzee’s axing was inevitable and overdue, but the real work starts now, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Rassie already taking charge

Although there has been no official confirmation from SA Rugby over the Bok coaching setup, Rassie Erasmus’ work is already well underway, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Boks need overseas boost

SA Rugby must review its policy and approach to selecting overseas-based players in order to aid the Springboks' cause in 2018, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Flyhalf competition is building

South African rugby’s flyhalf stocks are looking a lot healthier heading into 2018, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Expectations must be managed

The inevitable delays and lack of clarity around the likely restructuring of the Springbok coaching team means that expectations have to be realigned ahead of the 2018 season, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Boks need new coach approach

SA Rugby must strive to add a coach with a different way of thinking to the Springbok setup from next year, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Stop blaming ‘quotas’ for Bok woes

Misconceptions and prejudices related to the subject of so-called ‘quota’ selections must be eradicated if we are to move forward as a rugby nation, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


SA rugby suffering from brain drain

The loss of South African rugby’s intellectual property is just as damning as the chronic player drain, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Boks’ No 9 conundrum

The lack of Test-quality depth at scrumhalf remains a major concern for the Springboks less than two years away from the next World Cup, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Bok changes on the horizon

No matter what the results may be over the remainder of the Springboks' end-of-year tour, considerable changes to the current coaching and player group must take place, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Opportunity knocks for De Allende

Damian de Allende must make the most of his starting opportunities in what should be a watershed tour for the 25-year-old, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Duane, Steyn would bolster Boks

The Springboks have missed a trick by overlooking the value that Duane Vermeulen and Frans Steyn could have added to the end-of-year tour, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


SA would host special World Cup

World Rugby's decision to select South Africa as its preferred host for the 2023 World Cup is the good-news story South African sport has been desperately crying out for, writes CRAIG LEWIS.


Boks must stick to strengths

The Springboks should take cognisance of Western Province’s precise and powerful playoff performance in Saturday’s Currie Cup final, writes CRAIG LEWIS.
