Take a look at who's playing this weekend before you make your Superbru and Fantasy League picks.
The view that players are solely to blame for poor performance is nonsense. Astute coaches are critical, writes RYAN VREDE.
No South African-based scrumhalf has advanced their Springbok cause, leaving Fourie du Preez as the most likely selection for the mid-year Tests, writes RYAN VREDE.
Kieran Read, who is poised to win his 100th Super Rugby cap, deserves every plaudit that comes his way, writes RYAN VREDE.
Jean de Villiers will win his 100th Super Rugby cap on Friday, but getting him through to the World Cup in one piece seems unlikely, writes RYAN VREDE.
Jake White has backed South Africa's forgotten man Ryan Kankowski, and that combination could prove to be the inspiration for his Springbok return, writes RYAN VREDE.
The Bulls are facing a season that could get uglier than their diabolical 2008 campaign and Frans Ludeke seems powerless to stop it, writes RYAN VREDE.
In the context of the Stormers' game plan, Demetri Catrakilis is an infinitely better option than Elton Jantjies, but don't expect him to be the piece of the puzzle that ends their title drought, writes RYAN VREDE.
The Springboks are undoubtedly a stronger all-round side than in their last meeting against France in Toulouse, but this Paris Test will be more important, writes RYAN VREDE.
With JP Pietersen on the brink of his 50th Test for the Springboks, it's important to reflect on his career with praise and questioning, writes RYAN VREDE.
Heyneke Meyer has moved closer to his vision of his ideal match 23 and has not taken the Springboks backwards with his selections for Wales, writes RYAN VREDE.
The void that Victor Matfield left will be felt once more when the Springboks set off for their European tour without a specialist No 5 lock, writes RYAN VREDE.
With Bismarck du Plessis cleared to join a strong pack, supplemented by the power of Frans Steyn, the Sharks have the physicality to put the Western Province defence under pressure, writes RYAN VREDE.
Every player's career is marked by a series of different chapters. Frans Steyn's next one will be decisive, writes RYAN VREDE.
There cannot be a uniform approach to reintegrating the Springboks into the Currie Cup, but the selection of some in desperate need of rest is ludicrous, writes RYAN VREDE.
Allister Coetzee and Brendan Venter's comments since the Springboks' record 57-0 loss to the All Blacks are as concerning as the performance itself, writes SIMON BORCHARDT.
The Springboks’ blowout against the All Blacks on Saturday is simply a microcosm of a far greater problem facing South African rugby, writes CRAIG LEWIS.
The Springbok coaching team, as well as the players must be held accountable for the worst Test performance in South African rugby history, writes JON CARDINELLI.
