Boks take 'easy' decision to stick with Steyn
Wednesday 05 August 2009
The South Africa coach Peter de Villiers yesterday named an unchanged team for Saturday's Tri-Nations game against Australia in Cape Town, a decision he described as "easy".
There had been reports De Villiers would drop Morne Steyn in favour of Ruan Pienaar at fly-half, despite Steyn scoring all the Springboks' points in last weekend's 31-19 win over New Zealand. But Steyn was retained along with the other 14 players who starred against the All Blacks.
De Villiers said: "If the players conduct themselves in the manner that they are at the moment, it's easy to pick the team."
