Dream Bok?

Since the rugby season is drawing to a close I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the players on display in the upcoming tests and ask Santa for a gift for the Boks. It’ll never happen due to the IRB regulations but wouldn’t it be amazing to select a player from another country’s squad and put him in a Bok jersey?

Where would we start and who would we pick? Kieran Read? Leigh Halfpenny? Richie McCaw? Dan Carter? Those are the current superstars of rugby based on performances this year and experience but would they be your choice? When we look at some of the lower-ranked teams there are some amazing players there who may shine more brightly on the international stage if only they were born in another country.

The names that come to mind are Sergio Parisse, Martin Castrogiavanni, Richie Gray, Kahn Fotuali’I, Dave Denton to name but a few.

If you could pick any one player to join the Boks who would it be and why?
