    An interesting comment by John Smit, Springboks captain in an article in today's Telegraph, p92, says that League and Rugby should keep their hands of young South African players.  I really think League would appeal in South Africa.  I know it's a rugby Union and soccer stronghold, but there's obviously football talent to burn over there.  Would it be asking to much for Gallop to investigate future expansion over there?  A youth squad comp perhaps?  Lateral thinking maybe, but I'd love to see some big hulking forwards like Shalk Burger steamrolling up Brookvale oval for us.  He'd make an excellent second rower or lock.

    He can be Manly's talent scout in South Africa.  WE can pay him in free sandwiches.

    I seem to recall South Africa entered a side in one or two of the RL Sevens tournaments years back.

    Burger wouldn't be too good at league in my opinion, better off with someone like Spies.

    By the way, if Chuck Norris finds out that Schalk Burger is ripping him off then he is going to get roundhouse kicked into next week.

    get em young and train em up, at about 17 - 18 they would be cheap and raw and potentially could be anything.

    Dont go for the established springboks, NRL money would not compare to what they could get in Union. but the raw materials would definately be there.
