Let’s pick the best of the South Africans after the round 5 action. Let me know if you agree with these selections or not.

15. Not a lot to choose from here. We thought SP Marais had one of his poorer games, leaving no genuine opposition for Willie le Roux, the only Cheetah play reasonably well. Lions man Coenie van Wyk bubbling under.
14. Welcome back JP Pietersen! Not a lot of competition for him, to be honest.
13. We’ll stick with the Sharks flavour and go with Sibusiso Sithole, who had a strong first outing. Deon van Rensburg is runner up.
12. Stefan Watermeyer gets the nod after a good showing in Johannesburg. Frans Venter always tries hard too, while Frans Steyn landed some phenomenal kicks at goal.
11. Gio Aplon is a sentimental pick after that superb solo try in Hamilton. Lwazi Mvovo had a great all-round game.
10. Marnitz Boshoff, back with a bang! Pat Lambie was also very good.
9. That man Faf de Klerk continues to impress while the other SA scrummies struggled.

8. Well played Warren Whiteley, captain fantastic for the Lions. Ryan Kankowski was also good, as the other contenders struggled.
7. Willem Alberts gets it for a great 50 minutes, but props to Nizaam Carr for his great work as a replacement for the Stormers.
6. Marcell Coetzee, by a country mile. Dare we say he was the clear difference in Durban?
5. When all else fails, go with your banker in the position – Franco van der Merwe. Stephan Lewies impressed in his first start and the Stormers will miss De Kock Steenkamp, who is an influential player for them.
4. Can I opt not to pick? Not a lot going around here. Let’s call it a three-way tie between Anton Bresler, Franco Mostert and Lood de Jager, with plenty of room for improvement on all fronts.
3. An almost forgotten former Shark, Julian Redelinghuys, deserves to stand alone after a destructive scrummaging performance of sheer beauty.
2. Bismarck du Plessis again, with Robbie Coetzee close behind after being part of THAT Lions front row.
1. We’ll complete the pair and go with Lions loosehead Schalk van der Merwe, ahead of Beast Mtawarira who was also pretty good.
