Bismarck, Alberts in line for Bok starts

According to early reports coming out of the Springbok camp this week, John Smit looks set to be rested for Saturday’s test against the All Blacks in Port Elizabeth, regardless of his state of fitness or health. The Bok captain is somewhat doubtful for the weekend, having sat out yesterday’s training session with flu, but the indications are that Victor Matfield will lead the side out this weekend whatever the case.

With Smit having played most of the last three test matches, the skipper looks likely to sit out this one entirely, with Sharks hooker Bismarck du Plessis starting at hooker and Chilliboy Ralepelle on the bench. In another interesting move, it appears as though Willem Alberts- now finally over the shoulder injury that’s been plaguing him for some time – will be given a chance to cement a World Cup berth by being named to start at blindside flank, in place of Danie Rossouw.

Pat Lambie may well come in at fullback to replace Frans Steyn, while Morne Steyn is, according to the same reports, likely to start at flyhalf ahead of Butch James in a move that, frankly, has madness written all over it.
