Mayer Made 8 Changes for Victory

Rugby Union is definitely a great competition that is worth to watch. Unfortunately, it really seems that South Africa National team cannot provide interesting effort against several teams in the last matches. They really have lost from small team, and it is definitely a devastating fact for all people involved in this team. It is definitely a complicated matter inside of the team because of lose. That is why, it is important to know that the team really needs absolute encouragement for waking up the team from deep sleep. Heyneke Meyer is the coach of the team, and he is responsible for the team progress.

The first point that is concerned by this experienced coach is encouraging all of the players. It is definitely not an easy task, yet it should be successful. Indeed, the team is really under pressure, and the possibility is that the team may not be able to fight with all of their might in the following matches. It is even possible to have internal fight because each team member is emotionally attacked by condition. It is imaginable that losing many matches will lead to disturbance and separation within a team if no solidity or unity within the team. This is definitely a tedious and difficult task for the coach, but he tries the best to accommodate that.

In addition to merely encouragement, Meyer tries to shift team composition based on experience against several former battles. It is a worthy experience that he can compose the team finely without too much failures again. There are two causes why the compositions will be implemented. First of all, it is because there are a few players are injuries. They are not allowed to join more competition because it only makes them suffer more. Therefore, it is important for the coach to decide that the members will not be deployed just like previous composition. Secondly, it is because there are several players who do not develop because they are excellent in other position. Therefore, forcefully to shift position will be beneficial, and it is what wants to be implemented for the next team.

There are several changes that should be noted. Starting from the front lines, Willem Albert’s will replace Marcel Coetzee because he is severely injured. It is practically impossible to follow match in near future, and replacing him is absolutely great decision. Trevor Nyakane, Adriaan Strauss and Marcel van der Merwe will be in the front, and it is truly different from previous strategy. Going to the middle, Jean de Villiers is replaced by Jesse Kriel switch back to outside center. It is because Villiers is also injured. This is basically the 5 changes implemented to the team. The other three changes will be Zane Kirchner, Pat Lambie, and Lwazi Mvovo. Kirchner is full-back, Mvovo is the wing, and Lambie will be half-fly. All of those new compositions come from previous matches, and it should be fulfilling all roles for achieving victory in next battle. This set-up can be seen in future match.
