Badger, like the rest of South Africa was appalled by the state of our national side. We lost against Argentina, Australia and New Zealand in a row. the Argentina and Aus game we should have lost, if only we kicked better. In the first half against NZ we played excellent, but then we let thing go. if only we kept momentum. The Boks has another two games against Aus and NZ. Then we have our Northern Hemisphere matches against England, Wales, Italy and the Barbarians. 2016 just isn’t our year. Many people have an opinion on things that are wrong. Let Badger also give a penny for his thoughts.
- There are too much pressure. We have a lot of inexperience. We need to gain experience together. We will only see what we want to next year.
- Give Allistair a decent chance. This is not soccer. Where you fire someone after 7 games.
- Coetzee should give players more freedom to express themselves
- SARU need to assign a new President and CEO ASAP. We need to get our affairs together.
- Keep politics out of the game.
- We need a new kicking coach, a scrum coach and a new backline coach. We need to bring in more specialists in certain positions like a scrum half coach.
- Start Jaco Kriel at 6 and bring Pat Lambie back since he recovered from his injury. Rohan Janse van Rensburg is another option at 12
- Unions need to bring more players of colour through the ranks. and don’t lie to us, there a many. Look at the craven week. Then there will be less pressure.
- Sort out the Southern kings once and for all
- Make Warren Whiteley the captain. he is exactly what we need right now.
If Saru and the public just do these things Badger thinks we will be fine.
