Change of (Bok) plan, now!

Oem Ally, I know it hurts you and the players whenever the team loses but trust me we as the public hurts too if not more. Yes, SARU wanted a black coach but know that I for one believe in you. No coach can be decent in fact more than decent in Superrugby if you are not a coach of some pedigree. Here is the thing though, you WILL BE fired (replaced) even if it is after 8-10 years. So what I fail to understand is that you keep on farming the same way with the same ox’s (just a new breed).

I KNOW ‘stamp-kar’ rugby is not in your blood. Where you come from they don’t play rugby like that, you did not play rugby like that so why go against everything you believe in. Don’t you want to leave behind your own legacy? Ask Saru permission (if you have to) to select the players you believe will better fit in with your vision and way of playing. If you pick a player who is second or even third best in a specific position, but more suited to how you want the team (YOUR TEAM) to play I and many a supporter out there will understand. We don’t mind losing, just do so with some fight and dignity.

Go on your gut feel and pick Elton/Kolbe, hell man take the risk of playing Willie le Roux at 10 with Ruan as your goal kicker. We will miss a few to posts, but we will score tries which will more than make up for it.

Let’s go for it, be brave!
