They have a chance. Their forwards are dominating (true Dutchman rugby
). From the maul to the lineout to the scrum they will look to control the game there.
They also have special players in the likes of Spies and Habana. Spies is just a freak with size, electric pace and great feet and Habana is excellent in defence as well as being the ultimate greyhound.
My major concern with this team is the continued faith and love affair with Percy Montgomery at full-back. His lack of pace can see him exposed in defence and his propensity for kicking all the time in open play means opponents can gameplan with complete certainty of SAs strategy. Teams seldom kick to touch as the SA lineout is so strong and they know Percy will but the ball out and give the lineout to them. The words 'running counter-attack' are not something old Percy thinks of.
