Yeah. Januarie is poor, and it seems like every SA player who refers to themselves as a no.10 has had a go in the flyhalf shirt. Butch just happens to be the best tackler of the lot.They won't win a world cup with Butch James & Januarie in the halves tho. They were playing in an armchair against us and Lund and Gomarsall were still able to put Januarie under a fair bit of pressure.
Chilliboy isnt bad and he is young but he cant make the Bulls side. Everyone is behind Smit as Springbok hooker but the fact he has the same number of International caps as Gary Botha is just wrong.Heard Chilliboy was quite good TBH, even if he is still young.
Well I suppose Chilliboy is included as one of these 'transformation' players, safe in the knowledge that he'll rarely get game time because he is behind the captain.Chilliboy isnt bad and he is young but he cant make the Bulls side.

Pity poor JP Nel who is one of the most influencial and talented Bulls but must look around and see Chilliboy (who cant get into the team) and Hilton Lobberts (who has never played a Super 14 game) that have caps whilst he has never played for the Boks.
No doubt about that. His running game is very good and I think he has a pretty good boot on him as well, haven't seen too much of him on defense but he doesn't strike me as a particularly poor defender. Joost is my favourite Saffie player of all time.Yeah, lovely running halfback in a similar mould to Joost van der Westhuyzen, but still has a few chinks in his all-round game.
