Former Bok coach Jake White, writing for rugbyxv.co.za, answers readers' questions on Rassie Erasmus and the 'lack of depth' in SA Rugby.
How many current Springboks would make a World XV at the moment?
Jake: "If you make the Boks, as one of the top three sides in the world, you probably have a 33% chance of being recognised as a player worthy of being in a World XV."
Is there a lack of depth in South African rugby at the moment as we see the veterans from the Jake White era are getting long in the tooth with candidates few to replace them?
Jake: "Many may be despondent and emotional looking at recent results of the national side, and that will be the massive difficulty in 2012. It will be like eight years ago, re-starting from the beginning all over again with no development taking place in the last two years."
Will Rassie save the Boks with his words of wisdom ahead of the World Cup?
