MALCOLM MARX NEEDS TO FIRE
One of five player-of-the-year nominees, the Bok hooker needs to come good again. Marx has not been at his best this season – he certainly hasn’t shown the form at Test level as he showed in Super Rugby – and needs a big game to spark the Bok pack. His primary job is finding his line-out jumpers – something he didn’t do last week against England – and he simply has to hit the mark this week; failing again will be unforgivable. Whatever he does at the breakdowns will be a bonus.
