The full squad is here to react to one of the most shocking Springbok Rugby World Cup squad announcements in a while.
We react to the panic we all experienced seeing Lukhanyo Am, Handré Pollard and Lood de Jager omitted from the squad. We talk about whether Manie Libbok and Jesse Kriel can step up in their place. Shaun discusses the risks of playing Deon Fourie as our 3rd choice hooker. Jared looks at whether Canan Moodie can deputize at 13.
We then break down some of the crazy things happening in the squad announcements – from what do you do with 4 scrumhalves, to making 2m tall giants kneel to be capped, from the reaction to Makazole Mapimpi to the Rassie Erasmus conspiracy theories and John Smit arguing with our boy Kooks.
We try to deliver some copium to Bok fans as we discuss reasons why we can still win the World Cup, but mix in some realism about how the task is now tougher.
