Earlier in the week Keo and James Dalton got together for the 5th instalment of Biting The Bullet to chat Springbok selections, ahead of the June series against England and test against Wales.
Interestingly, the pair had only one player in common when it came to selecting the seven prospective backline players. While the selections differed completely, both offered up quality backlines, showing that we do in fact have the player depth and quality in South Africa. We just need to make the right selections and pick the right combinations.
