In the Hot Seat - Adriaan Strauss in Nelspruit
June 13, 2013
Popular Springbok hooker and vice-captain Adriaan Strauss moved into the Hotseat in Nelspruit tihs week, where the Boks take on Scotland on Saturday.

Your Question: Hi Adriaan, Julle Cheetahs moet die vryheid & genot vir die spel waarmee julle so duidelik hierdie jaar speel, bietjie by die Bokke inent en die "vrees" vir verloor wat die Groen & Goud Masjien altyd op sy rug dra afgooi. Dit sal nou vir jou n gejol afgee wat die Rugby-wêreld sal laat regop sit (ja, die Swart-truie ook)! - Pieter Oosthuizen

Adriaan antwoord: Dankie vir die ondersteuning Pieter. Vryheid en genot is een ding, maar dis altyd makliker en lekkerder as die telbord reg lees, en wen sal altyd die belangrikste bly. Enige span moet aanpasbaar wees en ek is seker jy sou aan ons benadering verlede Saterdag teen Italië gesien het ons is nie bang om te speel nie, mits ons op die regte plek op die veld is. Dit was verlede jaar dieselfde teen Australië op Loftus.

Your Question: do you think the referees you have played under are aware of why they are awarding penalties in the scrum. am aware you cannot criticise refs but you also are aware that by keeping quiet you are not helping out irrespective of what your answer is. - allan danker

Adriaan answers: Allan, it’s very difficult for me to comment on this – not because I don’t want to, but simply because I’m stuck in the middle of the scrum and I generally don’t know what’s happening to the props’ binding and so on. I do think things are going better in the scrums and there are fewer penalties, but our focus is to get it right in terms of the referee’s interpretation and to ensure we stay on the right side of scrum penalties.
