Cecil Afrika – pick him for the World Cup

Cecil Afrika. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Someone this talented just has got to be picked up the “ace up the sleeve” for PdV’s world cup squad.

He is the leading 7’s try scorer, a proficient tackler and has more talent in his left fingernail than any 15s Bok player (Gio excepted of course).

Come on PdV, what do you have to lose? Start him in the pool games… he could be our Jonah.

  1. he has got to be a better than Habana or JP?

    I want to see if he can go on the overseas leg of Tri-Nations?

    Aslo wouldnt mind seeing gerhardt van den heever getting a chance..somewhere!

  2. Cecil definitely. Should be good competition for the wings if PdV is open minded.

  3. Cecil is a good friend of mine and I am sorry to say this but it doesn’t look as if he is going to be returning to the 15 man game soon! He is happy where he is at in the sevens side but I would also love to see him get some exposure to the 15 man game at international level! He truly is a match winner and has the ability to spark something from nothing! Hopefully someday we will see him in the 15 man green and gold!

  4. He’s got plenty of time on his side. No rush really, but I would have loved to have seen him in the squad.
