International Rugby Events
All kind of International Rugby Events, like June Tours, Pacific cups and all others. It can't get any worse for the Springboks can it? That question will be answered when South Africa attempt to pick themselves up for Saturday's return Tri-Nations bout with New Zealand in Wellington.
Head to head: Piri Weepu v Ricky Januarie. Two halfbacks, whose careers have probably had more blips than highs, will be under no illusion of what's required of them come kick-off on Saturday. One of them gets a rare start for his country, whilst it's a probably a case of Last Chance Saloon for the other. Both, however, are tasked with getting quick ball out to their respective pivots which proved vital in getting on the front foot last week. In the black corner, Weepu comes off the bench to start his 40th Test for New Zealand. The Hurricanes' star, who is capable of delivering an even quicker service than the demoted Jimmy Cowan, has been lively in his efforts off the bench and will relish a start on home turf. In the green and gold corner, Januarie is given another chance to prove his food, er, rugby critics wrong. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the Boks are missing Fourie du Preez, and his replacement has had mighty big boots to fill. He hasn't played badly, but the fact remains that South Africa have several players more capable of filling Du Preez's void than the favoured Stormers' reserve. Against Weepu, Januarie needs to deliver the goods to repay the faith Peter de Villiers has shown in him time and time again.
