MAKE AN IM­PACT OFF THE BENCH

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT - FRANCE: Re­place­ments: SOUTH AFRICA: Re­place­ments:

Coach Rassie Eras­mus has done a lot of good things this year, but he hasn’t fig­ured out how to em­ploy his bench just yet. When to make changes, and who to re­place, has be­come some­thing of a fine art, but it’s some­thing the Boks need to get right, and soon. Marx should have been yanked last week af­ter his line-out woes, but he wasn’t, un­til too late in the game. With qual­ity, im­pact men on the bench, Eras­mus needs to make the tough calls when called upon to do so.
