VREDE'S VIEW

Perspective needed on WP success

Currie Cup success for Western Province should be seen in isolation. Thriving in Super Rugby should be the measure of any coaching staff worth their salt, writes RYAN VREDE.


Spotlight on Carr

Nizaam Carr's form has put him on the Springboks' radar but he has to show his mettle in knockout rugby, writes RYAN VREDE.


Boks build strong base

The Springboks have built quality in depth in key positions ahead of the World Cup, writes RYAN VREDE.


Potent Pollard a Bok gem

Handré Pollard has announced himself as a Test player of immense potential, writes RYAN VREDE.


Victory critical for Boks

Failure to beat the All Blacks would mean the Springboks have regressed significantly, writes RYAN VREDE.


Hailing Dad’s Army

The value of veteran Springboks was exhibited in full at Newlands on Saturday. Critics of their selection should shut it, writes RYAN VREDE.


Springboks need big response

There is immense pressure on Heyneke Meyer and the Boks to salvage what has the potential to turn into a failed season, writes RYAN VREDE.


Spotlight on Hougaard

Francois Hougaard's aptitude will come under the microscope once again in the Springboks' last two Tests of the Rugby Championship, writes RYAN VREDE


Pollard’s selection puzzling

Handré Pollard faces the toughest test of his short international career but his selection is a gamble Heyneke Meyer didn't need to take, writes RYAN VREDE.


Some balance on Steyn, please

Morné Steyn's error against Australia must be seen in isolation and not indicative of him being a useless player, writes RYAN VREDE


Boks must be more like All Blacks

The tackle offload must become a key feature of the Springboks' attacking evolution, writes RYAN VREDE.


Forget about World Cup

The Springboks' form at present has absolutely no relevance to their prospects at the World Cup, writes RYAN VREDE.


Believe in Pollard but pick Steyn

Handré Pollard would have learned valuable lessons from the Springboks' Rugby Championship opener but Morné Steyn is the man for Salta, writes RYAN VREDE.


Move closer to completing Bok puzzle

This is a critical Rugby Championship in terms of the Springboks settling on their core squad and strategy for the 2015 World Cup, writes RYAN VREDE


Kick flawed perceptions out

With the Springboks poised for another Rugby Championship assault, let's bury the rhetoric that tactical kicking is a bad thing, writes RYAN VREDE
