Super 14: Dick pulls the Full Monty

Dick Muir sprung some major surprises in naming his 30 man squad, the biggest of which is naming Monty as the only flyhalf of the Durban based team.

The Springbok fullback was one of two major surprises, the other being Brent Russel named as fullback with the exciting JP Pietersen as his back up.

Ruan Pienaar, who could also provide cover in the flyhalf position if disaster strikes, has been named as one of three srumhalfs.

Interestingly Tony Brown has not been named in the squad because Muir is apparently still waiting his arrival - something I found very interesting seeing past media reports almost had him as a dead certainty.

With all 5 franchises naming 30 man squads Dick can always fall back on players such as Dean Hall and Butch James who has been listed as 'injured'.

Other players not considered due to injury includes Jaco Gouws, Braam Immelman, Tsepo Kokoali, Dusty Noble and Scott Matthie.

Full 30 man squad:

15. JP Petersen, Brent Russell
14. Cedric Mkhize
13. Grant Rees, Waylon Murray, Adrian Jacobs
12. Gcobani Bobo, Andries Straus
11. Odwa Ndungane, Henno Mentz
10. Percy Montgomery
9. Craig Davidson, Sandile Nxumalo, Ruan Pienaar
8. Jacques Botes, Daniel Farani
7. Nico Breedt
6. Warren Britz, Solly Tyibilika
5. Johann Muller, Albert van den Berg
4. Johan Ackermann, Steven Sykes, AJ Venter
3. BJ Botha, Danie Saayman
2. Skipper Badenhorst, Bismarck du Plessis
1. Brent Moyle, Deon Carstens
Smit is also 'injured' and can obviously included later.

AJ at lock was also a surprise, i woudl have thought he could just as well name him at 7?

interesting squad, i see trouble on the way for them though.
Lots of versatility in the squad though. Quite a few players covering different positions.  
It's not a bad squad, PA.

It compares favourable with the Stormers....


Will 2006 be the year of tears?
"Just make sure that if you are past 65 and want to read PA's arti that you have already been to the loo, otherwise you will have to start all over again."

LOL!!!!! hehehehehe, oh dear
