VREDE'S VIEW

Bok attack fails to inspire

The Springboks' attack is in crisis, writes RYAN VREDE from Ellis Park.


Bulls need major shake-up

The Vodacom Bulls have stagnated and are far from the force they should be. Things need to change and their former scrumhalf Fourie du Preez agrees, writes RYAN VREDE.


Du Preez still Boks’ best

No South African scrumhalf has played consistently well enough to unseat Fourie du Preez as the Springboks' premier No 9 for a demanding 2015 Test season, writes RYAN VREDE.


Dobson strengthens Stormers case

John Dobson has earned the right to be seriously considered for the Stormers' head coach gig, writes RYAN VREDE.


Pollard’s growth a boon for Boks

Handré Pollard is quickly developing into a flyhalf of the highest order, writes RYAN VREDE.


Serfontein needs strong finish

Jan Serfontein's immediate Test future will be decided by how he finishes this Vodacom Super Rugby campaign, writes RYAN VREDE.


Stormers need complete overhaul

Yet another season is passing for the Stormers with no signs of progression. They are a franchise in crisis, writes RYAN VREDE.


Hougaard must wing it

There can now no longer be questions around Francois Hougaard's best position. It is at wing, writes RYAN VREDE


Hailing a hero

In coming back from a life-threatening illness Schalk Burger has underlined his status as a national treasure, writes RYAN VREDE.


SA coaches not cutting it

The standard of coaching at the South African Vodacom Super Rugby franchises is a grave concern, writes RYAN VREDE.


Tour to shape Stormers’ season

The Australasian leg of the Stormers' campaign will be critical to their tournament ambitions, writes RYAN VREDE.


Matfield’s stock skyrockets

Pieter-Steph du Toit's injury throws the spotlight on Victor Matfield's critical importance to the Springboks in a World Cup context, writes RYAN VREDE.


Stormers must grow attacking game

The Stormers' famed physical and accurate defence has resurfaced but they need to add a cutting edge on attack to make them championship material, writes RYAN VREDE.


Stormers no longer soft target

The Stormers seem to have found a winning method that is easily replicable and brings with it the promise of less heartache for their supporters, writes RYAN VREDE.


Matfield battling against time

Victor Matfield has looked every bit his age and needs to find his stride to allay concerns about his longevity, writes RYAN VREDE.
