Super 14: Bosman will start against the Force

Meyer Bosman will wear the number 10 jersey agains the Western Force on Saturday.

Partnered by his Springbok partner Michael Claassens, Bosman will have the opportunity to stake his claim as the first choice flyhalf for the Cheetahs this season.

Although Rassie Erasmus denies any pressure from Jake White, you can be assured that the Bok Coach as well as many South African supporters will keep a close eye on Bosman's performance against international opposition.

On his outside Keith Lowen will wear the number 12 jersey with the talented Alwyn Hollenbach slotting in at number 13.

Gaffie du Toit will also get his first start at fullback for the Cheetahs.

Cheetahs team:

Gaffie du Toit, Eddie Fredericks, Alwyn Hollenbach, Keith Lowen, Sinethemba Zweni, Meyer Bosman, Michael Claassens

Ryno van der Merwe, Juan Smith (C), Kabamba Floors, Barend Pieterse, Corniel van Zyl, Jannie du Plessis, Tiaan Liebenberg, Wian du Preez

Os du Randt, Trevor Leota, Ollie le Roux, Ockie van Zyl, Gareth Krause, Frans Viljoen, Noel Oelschig, Willem de Waal, Bevin Fortuin, Ronnie Cooke.
I, for one, hope that Bosman vindicates the trust placed in him by Jake and Rassie. It is also commendable that Rassie is prepared to give him a chance at 10. My biggest worry was that he would not get game time at 10 because de Waal himself has Bok aspirations and is a deadly goal kicker,  

I'm with you on that one, but I fear the Force may be a test too fast for Bosman.

Nevertheless I trust Rassie's judgement - but I still have doubts about that of Jake White.

i think we all do but given the situation we have in our country, i think everybody hopes this boy cuts it.
Face it, De Waal is a better player than Bosman and should be the Bok Flyhalf. I am not hoping for Bosman to fail, don't get me wrong, but I think Jake put the spotlight on him to early.
